    Recent Deployment

    Afghanistan - The Taliban gave safe haven to Al Qaeda, which allowed terrorists to plan

    and carry out attacks around the world. That is why the United Nations authorised a

    NATO/ISAF-led military intervention. Getting rid of the Taliban regime and Al Qaeda

    was only the first part of the job. The second is to make sure they cannot return.

    Sierra Leone - The British Army were deployed to Sierra Leone, a former British colony

    on Operation Palliser in 1999 to aid the government in quelling violent uprisings by

    militiamen, under United Nations resolutions. Troops remain in the region to provide

    military support and training to the Sierra Leonean government.


    On the 19th April 2011 the UK announced it would be sending 'experienced

    British military officers' to support and advise Libya's rebels. The Libyan government

    says it will fight any foreign troops on its soil.

    The Royal Engineers, or Sappers as they are known, have blazed a trail of innovation

    and achievement through history. The term Sappers originates from the trenches or

    'saps' which engineers were employed to build towards enemy positions to allow the

    placing and detonating of explosive charges.

    Originally called Sappers and Miners, the name Sappers has stuck with the RoyalEngineers throughout their history.

    From the earliest developments in military aviation, signaling and and tank warfare to

    the very latest bridging systems and map making techniques, the Sappers have

    operated at the cutting edge of technology and frequently in the most inhospitableconditions.
