Follow The Sapper

Discussion in 'Sappers' started by Gundulph, Nov 14, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Never heard of it but may get it when I leave the Corps

  2. Civvy now - "What is a Sapper anyway?!"

  3. I own a copy - 'Once a Sapper' and all that - Hoorah!

  1. A small Poll to see how many Corps Members/Former Sappers have the book "Follow The Sapper" by Follow Gerald Napier.


    It can be bought direct from the Sapper Shop (See Chimera's Stickied Thread at the top of the Sappers Forum)
  2. Never heard of it.
  3. No, me neither.
  4. Neither did I til a couple of years ago, it's massive! but a really good illustrated history of the Corps, many known players in the more recent parts of the history in the book...

    It would make a brilliant stocking filler, it would have to be some fat barstewards' sock in order to fit it in though... 8)
  5. bought it when it firts came out BUT bought it off amazon as it was a tenner cheaper than buying it in the corps shop
  6. Not seen that one, however, I have just had a quick glance at my book shelf and found ‘A Short History’ that I bought voluntary 8O in training.

    Its getting somewhat dated now :oops:
  7. I just checked Amazon Knocker, they have them available from 55 Spondoolies! 8O
  8. Nowadays its a favourite to give to the top student(s) on B3 courses
  9. best keep a hold of mine then, i paid less the £20 for my copy. :D
  10. there's one on Ebay for £49.00, a nice prezzzie from santa.!

    Nice to see the Riggies getting on the front of the newer one with the North Rumaila crossing, however no one mention 412 Tp (V) :wink:

    And with the GSB in the background you could say that the picture shows 28’s finest hour in recent years
  14. I have a copy of a 1973 "commando War stories for boys" titled
    "front line Sapper" - fantastic!
  15. i still have an old REPB somewehere i think.
