Help on RE unit

I was speaking to my grandad at the weekend and got talking about what he did during WW2 and he says that he was part of the 24 airfield construction group, Royal Engineers, attached to the 1rst Canadian army.

Does anyone have any info on what this unit done and where it was posted throughout the war?

Thanks in advance.
Check out the RE Museum website www.remuseum.org.uk It has some stuff on the airfield construction units including the one you mention.

If you're that interested contact the museum directly and they should be able to disclose more detailed unit histories.
