    In cadets we do some work with engineers and I have noticed that on the sheaths of their grohmann they have what looks like tape, correct me if I am wrong. Just interested.

Yes we do have gun tape on the sheaths of our knives.
Due to the variety of jobs we do,the tape comes in very handy at times.
We learnt it from Red Green. ;)

It's just Olive Drab duct tape. I'm not a sapper, but I too love it and carry it in my webbing..

It is usually 1 inch gun tape on the sheath.   It has the same purpose for Engineers as it would have had for Pioneers.

The 2 inch roll is never far (buttpack on the old webbing), and every section has its 4 inch roll.

I thought the gum was for fixing holes in the MFR/MFB

By the way I was a Sapper in my former life.

No no gum is/was used to fix holes in the hulls of DDHs. 4" tape is to fix holes in the wings of heads of states pers. aircraft.
