I would be very surprised if you have the intellectual qualities required for membership of Her Majesty's Royal Engineers. However to answer your question I would advise an attentive perusal of the following.
Where the shot and shell are falling
And the bugles are a - calling,
Where the smoke and smell of powder's on the wind
And the sharper rifle rattle shows the forefront of the battle
A squad or two of Sappers you will find.
Be it bridging or pontooning
Be it surveying or ballooning
A path through swamps or obstacles to clear.
Then the man they all will beckon
And the man on whom they'll reckon
Is serving in the 'Royal Engineers'
EVERYWHERE our motto
Where our country needs
Is the Sappers watchword
Not by words but deeds
First when bugle summon
Last to leave in War
Is the proud tradition
Of our glorious Corps!
Wings to bear me over mountain and vale away;
Wings to bathe my spirit in morning’s sunny ray.
Wings that I may hover at morn above the sea;
Wings through life to bear me, and death triumphantly.
Wings like youth’s fleet moments which swiftly o’er me passed;
Wings like my early visions, too bright, too fair to last.
Wings that I might recall them, the loved, the lost, the dead;
Wings that I might fly after the past, long vanished.
Wings to lift me upwards, soaring with eagle flight;
Wings to waft me heav’nward to bask in realms of light.
Wings to be no more wearied, lulled in eternal rest;
Wings to be sweetly folded where faith and love are blessed.
