Churchill Mk. IV AVRE with "Bobbin" Carpet Layer (Type D) - Metal Slats
Churchill Mk. IV AVRE with "Bobbin" Carpet Layer (Type D) - Metal Slats 
The Carpet-Layer (Type D) Mk.III, or "Bobbin" as it was better known, was designed especially for use by the 79th. Armd. Division as one of their "Funnies" for the Normandy landings to facilitate vehicles moving over the beaches in the assault stages.
Two types of "carpeting" were deployed on the type D, Mk.III. The first and more common (UK126) was constructed of sheets of hessian, reinforced with tubular scaffold pipes. The second (UK127) consisted of interlocking, flexible hinged metal strips.
They performed well, especially with wheeled vehicles, although tracked AFV's did tend to damage them, and although only a temporary expedient, being replaced later with PSP, their deployment in the early stages prooved a success.
After laying their "carpets", the framework and empty bobbins were discarded and the AVRE's then brought their Petard mortars into operation.
