Sappers on the Rock
The Royal Engineers contributions to Gibraltar’s defences are manifold and manifest. Since the forming of the Soldier Artificer Company in 1772, this versatile and innovative collection of servicemen has shaped the face of the Rock.
In preparation for invasion during WWII the RE Tunnelling companies formed a labyrinth of underground passageways, roads, magazines, accommodation areas and much more to ensure the garrison was able to function through siege conditions.
There is nowhere on this rocky outcrop that has escaped the influence of the Sapper. Allow our guide to lift the veil on 240 years of military history.
