The term SANDPIT

I was just wondering , do any of you serving soldiers ever actually use the term ''Sandpit''? I had never heard of it until i logged on to arrse after my second Telic tour . Is it a civvie expression ? Just wondering .

No, everyone I know uses it. Thing is it doesn't have the same ring to it as, say, 'that sh!thole'.

Afghanistan should logically be referred to as the Rockery.
Once upon a time RMAS was known as 'Sandpit'
