My husband was in the 20th engineers, and was all over the country working on roads, building and rebuilding airstrips, things like that. He was mostly in the central Highlands. He was operating a road grader one day a week before he was to come home, and ran over a mine- blew the road grader in half and didn't do him a lot of good either. I thought it was a rare thing- but he said they constantly set mines on the roads to get who ever they could; I also found out on the internet that 1600 Engineers were killed during the time he was there. I guess the moral is no one was safe no matter where they were or what they were doing.
