A few names that are well used around the Corps might be Kitchener and Gordon. Of our VC winners, Chard is one of the favourites (Rorke's Drift).

Note that the Corps of Royal Engineers does not have Battle Honours as we are always present on the battlefield, hence the motto Ubique ("everywhere")

Gundulf, Renny-Tailyour and Stafford, representing the father of the Corps and the two goal-scorers in the 1875 FA Cup success.

What about the names that are associated with great bravery of the Corps of Sappers around D Day?
Sword Beach.....Pegasus....Escaut...Overloon.
All these are sites of great bravery and courage from my company in 1944. If nothing else, it would recall the names of the brave.
Sapper Brian Guy

Why not A Wing, B Wing and C Wing - in recognition of the RE involvement in the design of Pentonville Prison?

The Cadets could adopt a prisoner in their respective Wing.

82 Sqn in JL's used to have VC winners as troop names. Knox, Perie, Colvin etc

54 had famous battles - Rhine, Salerno, Burma etc

66 were shitcunts.
You Chod!!

66 were famous for winning everything.
We just went down the adult, mature route of Troop names.

How's about :

Camoflet, Hayrick and Beehive.
(and I was a POM!!)
