WW2 Devon & Cornwall Fortress Royal Engineers Print Plate A very interesting metal print block / plate showing the reverse badge of the Devon & Cornwall Fortress Royal Engineers with a George VI crown. At the turn of the century both Devon and Cornwall had volunteer units of Royal Engineers. Their roles helped to defend the coastal towns of Cornwall and Devon respectively. In the 1920’s both counties volunteer units amalgamated to form the Devonshire and Cornwall (Fortress) Engineers (D&C (F) RE). At the outbreak of WW2 Company HQ was moved to the D&C (F) RE HQ at Mutley Barracks in Plymouth where the units role was a searchlight and AA (anti aircraft) one. In late 1939 the unit was redesignated 482nd (Devon & Cornwall) Searchlight Company, RE. During 1940, all of the RE's AA units were transferred to the Royal Artillery (RA). The following month, the opening of the Battle of Britain saw the start of day and night air raids on Plymouth and the searchlights were frequently in action. A very interesting and short lived unit starting from the late 1920’s until late 1939. The metal plate measures 3.2 cm tall by 3.1 cm wide and 0.7 cm deep.
