Another sapper belonging to the 1 REG (FFL 1st Engineer Rgt based in L'Ardoise) is still in a life threatening condition after taking a bullet in the head in a different TIC which happened last Saturday still in RC-E. He is currently being treated in a Paris hospital but it is not clear whether he will make it or not. Really hope he does.
