Exercise Hops May 29th 1941 UK

I am researching the blowing up of the River Teme Aqueduct Herefordshire on May 29th 1941 as part of Western Command Exercise Hops. The Aqueduct was part of the River Teme Stop Line and carried the disused Leominster Canal. The RE 216 Army Fd Coy and the Buffs were there together. There is nothing in the War Diaries. I am waiting to hear from the NAM and Dragon June 41 is missing
There seem to be no private diaries of Lt-Col TN Penlington (CO) of which I am aware.
Any suggestions would be appreciated . No personal eye witnesses to the demolition are known to date.
