Gunners vs Sappers

Posted by Admin
Gunner-Sapper rivalry stems from the days when Gunner and Sapper officers were trained at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich; all other officers attended Sandhurst. The first Gunner-Sapper match was played at Woolwich in 1864. Thereafter, until 1906, there were two matches each year, one at Woolwich and one at Chatham.
