The Sappers are the true jack of all trades going everywhere and turning their hands to pretty much everything. many other corps have been spawned from the RE such as the R Signals, REME and AAC.

The RE can trace their history back to William the Bastards invasion of 1066, a full 600 years before the New Model Army became the British Army.
