Tagging Royal Engineers

  • Stork by Stork

    When a coy of RE is doing its usual work, should that be Digging/repairing positions, Working party, Construction, or maybe no tag at all since that's their job?

    I usually use Digging/repairing positions or Construction, depending on what the work is. I also use only one tag per type of work per day. What I mean is that when an entry says one section working on road repair and one section building huts, or something like that, I just tag construction once.

    I think it's good to add the tag for their activity because, although this type of work is their job, it does vary from work in the trenches to things like fixing up a space for brigade headquarters.

    Sorry it took so long for you to get an answer back from us. I did see your question the day you posted it, so I apologize.
