    Gentlemen,
    does Sapper Lodge still exist, and if so does it welcome ex Sappers on their travels? Can't seem to find any reference to it on't t'internet.
    Thanks for any pointers.

    Spent a week in the Sapper Lodge whilst with the RAOC and it has to be said, it was a cracking lodge and we we made to feel very welcome.

    Although, after a nights Weizen drinking, listening to the stream outside didn't do much for my bladder control. 8O

    Attached a pic from the bar for nostalgia reasons.

  14. Remember getting the last ski lift up and sitting in the bar at the top of the hill behind the lodge. Once it got proper dark they unleashed us and gave us a flaming torch to scorch the arse of the guy in front. Last one back to the lodge buys the beers! Happy days!
