More Sappers studying our rich history and drawing valuable lessons, this time from a far more recent conflict. A study of the Balkans campaign offers many striking similarities with potential problems of the future and provokes great debate about how we might prepare for them

Great to see Sappers in Flanders during the 100th Anniversary year. An enormous Sapper effort during the war and still such a rich amount to see and learn. Glad you were able to be part of the ceremony at the Menin Gate
