87 Company was a general labour company generally working just behind the front line. They were often used building defences as well as at forward ammo dumps and railheads.

March 1918 they are reported to be working within 800 yards of the enemy and that is before the German offensive!

In September 1918 they were transferred to "RAF support" - building airfields?

Ivor,

In September 1918 87 Coy became 87 Labour Company Independent Air Force. Movements of troops are mentioned in the Daily Routine Orders of 8 Bde IAF under Air 1 at the PRO. This places them close to the American Sector.
