Passed my selection and i'm now waiting on a date to go and start basic and join the corps. I just thought i'd be a nosy bugger as the blokes at my careers office are all PWRR so haven't spoken to any real sappers. For those of you who have been out to Afghanistan, what is the basic job of a sapper there? Do you use your trade much out there? Or are you basically doing the same job as the infantry i.e. patrols, compound clearance etc? Cheers in advance chaps. Looking forward to becoming part of something so big and well respected.
