Today's Heroes: Sir Donald Coleman Bailey, OBE

Sir Donald Coleman Bailey, OBE, born 15 September 1901, invented the Bailey bridge, a portable, repairable, prefab bridge, which helped the U.S.A. and the U.K. beat the Axis faster, saving many lives. They are still in use today.  Mr. Bailey invented it by fooling around with bridge models as a hobby. I wish surfing the Internet would save lives.
