Calling all Royal Engineers
I developed this site because I'm a sapper and I know how hard it can be to find old friends, I'd like this to be the place to find anyone who served with you in the Royal Engineers. This site is free, paid for by me and hopefully always will be. To search for another sapper, use the "Find your mates" link above. The general public don't get access, only people connected with the glorious Corps of Royal Engineers. It's free because we're Sappers, not bankers.
Every week, over 100 searches for people take place on this site. Are your old sapper mates looking for you? Can you be found? If someone typed "Royal Engineers" into Google, would they find you? They will if your service history basic info is on here. However, you will not show up as a member of the Corps of Royal Engineers on this site until you record some details of the squadrons or units you've served with in your work history.
Just read about Leicestershire Firefighter Paul Wilkens who passed away this week whilst on duty . I didnt know Paul personally but I read that he was an ex Sapper , so I thought I would share this info with any Sappers that might have known him . REgards ex Sapper and ex Firefighter Steve Kent"
TA units all start with TA before the unit number. Australian units all start with AUS.
Only registered members can see email contact details for other users, and all you need is an email address, you do NOT give your postal address, bank details or any other personal stuff. To get to the right forums, just select the right squadron from the Sqn link or the member search link, there should be a forum created for every individual unit.
