Actually, no. The sense I got from the manual is that they were just using
the sandbags to remove the material, not to shore up anything (presumably,
the sandbags were then used for surface fortifications to protect gun
emplacements, etc. - this manual definately reflects the post-Great War
To shore up the excavated tunnels/galleries they used timber framing.
