AVREs were used to transport fascines - large bundles of wooden sticks and other materials used to bridge gaps in the ground. The AVRE would release the fascine into these gaps to create a passable surface. Tank-carried fascines were first used during the First World War to fill trenches that were either too wide or too deep for vehicles to cross.
