POTD: Australian Special Operations Engineer Regiment

    Australian Special Operations Engineer

    Photo Of The Day: Being an engineer in the Army sounds boring, doesn’t it? Well, perhaps not if you join the Special Operations Engineer Regiment in Australia. These engineers look pretty Special Ops if you ask me.

    The unit’s motto is ‘Inter Hastas et Hostes’, which is Latin for ‘Between spears and enemies’, signifying the traditional sapper (or combat engineer) role and the enduring unit requirement to operate in the dangerous space between enemy forces and own troops.
