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

  1. Right, I have a mate out in Basra now. Haven't been in touch for a while so I'm looking for some info.

    Does any one firstly the BFPO. Also could some one PM the name of the Reg out there? And finally, if there are any deployed sappers here can you drop me a line? Ye might know him!

    Oh yeah, if you were a young twenty-mumble sapper out in the dessert, what would you want me to send you?

    Thanks for all the help.
