Sappers Day – In the New Zealand Army, sappers celebrate Sappers Day on 15 October.
A sapper, also called pioneer or combat engineer, is a combatant or soldier who performs a variety of military engineering duties such as bridge-building, laying or clearing minefields, demolitions, field defences and general construction, as well as road and airfield construction and repair.
Arguably the best corps to belong to! We certainly have great training – bridges, bombs and boats.
Happy Sappers Day to all NZ sappers. https://www.nzsappers.org.nz/
