Royal Engineers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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")
The Gunners also have the motto 'Ubique'.

Their interpretation of that is " All over the ******* place ".

Why I suggested Sword as one of the names, is that it would be a step towards remembering the Sappers that were in the water removing the explosive loaded obstacles on Sword.

They continued to carry out their duties, even when the tide rose and some were drowned. They gave their lives knowing that their sacrifices would never be recognised

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.
Shitcunts? They were not even that good. Potential gunners, one and all.

They stuck you ******* bell ends over where you'd feel comfortable - opposite the WRVS, next to the fat RP shift lines and adjacent to the education wing so you could be re-trained after every lunch break :)

How about 'Brontes', 'Shadows' and 'Blondies'. Named for some of the more illustrious drinking hole of the Corps.
