48 Squadron

This is the main page for the squadron or unit. More info will be added here as I get the time, but for now it's a "base" for establishing comms with other members of the same unit. You can post messages for other members of the same unit using the messages link above this blurb, and you can also search for other members of this unit. Once you find them, click on their name to send an email direct to them. Please note that this website doesn't "remember" your emails, they are sent direct from you to the recipient without sappers.co.uk getting in the way. That helps you get in touch quickly and it keeps everything simple and free. Have fun. Gordon


Hi, Can you perhaps set up an extra page for Sappers in Dhofar - Oman? Thanks

Photos of the tour in Dhofar with 48 Field Sqn. (Ripon) in 1974.


I've set up a Facebook group called "The Dhofar Insurgency 2" for anyone who served in Dhofar from ca. 1962 to ca. 1977.

Anyone out there served with 48 Squadron between 1969 to 1972.
