Having had a quick read of some posts already up what is the actual role of the pioneers in war and peace. I was interested in joining them as an officer because of the possibilities of doing PCD and being in a corps with plenty of other varied posts. I understand they are all trained infantrymen who's main roles are static defence, minor building work and graves registration. Are these infantry skill put to use or is it all digging in and stagging on? Can anyone in the regiment fill me in (as to information, not to punish my impudence and lack of knowledge)??
