The Dirac operator is studied both with and without background gauge fieldson a three-dimensional random lattice. It is shown that the correct continuum limit for free fermions is recovered in the zero field case and the doubling problem evaded at tree level, the doubles acquiring masses of order the cut-off and decoupling from long-distance physics. The vacuum current is calculated in the presence of a nontrivial U(1) field and shown to be in agreement with continuum calculations.
