In today's Daily Hate, a long letter appeared written by a retired Sapper QMSI. In it he perhaps light-heartedly put forward two myths or brick-bats with which your honoured Corps is prone to lambaste Gunners. The first concerned the lanyard, which he stated was in fact an emblem of Sapper courage recovering gunner colours (the guns) during the Crimean War. Hell's teeth most Sappers have the decency to pin the fake story on Gibraltar. From your own Corps museum I present the truth about this: He also did the traditional ubique versus "all over the shop" one. now I don't mind this and would admit to have played it back at you chaps myself. However he is, despite reaching a senior rank in your Corps, erroneous in thinking "Ubique" on the RE badge and cypher is in fact a battle honour. It is a "motto" in your case, a battle honour in ours. There, that's better! I do of course forgive the QMSI, after all "evil be to him, who evil thinks"!
