This Unit of Royal Engineers was a Territorial Army Field Company, originally headquartered in Sunderland.

The War Diary was completed in manuscript and it has not always proved possible to completely interpret the text. Question marks have been inserted where words are unclear. The Enlistment Books for the Corps of Royal Engineers were destroyed when the Corps Museum was unable to accept them and therefore it has not proved possible to trace the service history of the men who served in Engineer Units attached to the 70th Infantry Brigade. Where names of servicemen have been able to be traced or have been extracted from the text of the War Diary they are listed below. At this stage the full supporting information on these men is not accessible but where facts have been able to be found, they have been included on their personal pages. It is hoped that family members will contact us with details of their backgrounds.

Personnel known to have served in the Unit.

As the researcher was unable to gain access to the Enlistment Books for the 507th Field Company, the information on the names of those who served in the Unit is unfortunately limited to those mentioned on the War Diary or, thanks to the help of the Enquiry staff at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, those who became casualties while serving in the Unit. Those men will be included within the personnel list, though without information as to cause of death. Families who have relatives on this list are welcomed, and encouraged, to contact the researcher, using the link below, to provide personal or family information which can be included on their Memorial Pages.
