LOL - that's funny...

But didn't the REME have technical storemen?

Did they do a course? Seriously....

I remember a classic situation.

A Rover got bogged in, a Bedford came to grief trying to get him out. A 432 bellied and lost traction.

Along came a Cent ARV. The Recce Mech laid out a series of ground anchor pins and pulleys and dragged the whole sorry mess out.

Yes, they definitely DO do a course.

I am ex-RA, ex-RAC and pro REME !














Ex RA, ex QOH, pro REME !

My first choice was REME reccy mech, the RA Captian at the recruiting centre talked me out of it - I regret that a little to be truthful!

Only joking. My first choice was REME Recy Mech, second was RASC and third, Gunners. In the light of my experiences I was happy with that!

Yes REME tech Stmn did courses at SEME as did Recy Mechs. Not sure about current training as the old tech stmn role has changed and I believe that they are now responsible for all 'Q' matters in REME Units.

We had an oldish Sgt VM who I had never seen working on a vehicle for the 3 years I was with him. He used to hang about the Stores,and knew the location of every part better than the Storemen, and after his liquid lunch in the Sgt Mess, he would squint at the roof and provide the VM's with most part numbers without looking in the Parts List.

I see a lot of young REME guys here at Deepcut on their Storemans courses, I think they do their "Basic" training at Arborfield then move over to Deepcut for Trade Training.

I'd heard that all basic is done as a mixed unit now, so it seems you are bearing that out Shelldrake.

A minor correction in the interests of accuracy

Phase One Basic Military Recruit Training is now carried out at a number of All Arms Centres of Excellence throughout the Country

Catterick is the location of the majority of Infantry Basic Training

Bassingbourne on the borders of Hertfordshire and Cambridge is now the location of Phase One Training for the Armoured Corps, Sapper, Royal Signals and REME

Pirbright for the Gunners and RLC

Others will more knowledgable than me will doubtless fill in the gaps

Subsequently the Phase Two Specialist trade training is carried out at individual Corps Schools

In the case of REME
The black hand gang (VMs and the like) still head for Bordon
Electronic and aeronautical trades to Arborfield
Technical Storemen (very few in number) are trained on All Arms Courses run at Deepcut

To go back to your original posting your 45 link is an excellent site but there are a number of errors and ommissions which Steve, I and others are trying to correct. Watch this space!!

(The webmasterand our original boss, Philip Graham were swapping info from the onset, there is a direct link to the 45 Site from our Home Page Link Section)
