Chicken in sauce with added garlic and a few other flavours thrown in and then chucked onto some spagetti.
I enjoyed it.

(Sigh) ... OK one more time I will try to explain the REME function ..

Rough Engineering Made Easy.

Ruin Everything Mechanical Eventually.

Len (Ciphers)


Workshop's


In forty two they formed the R.E.M.E.,
They combed the army for the dreamy,
For the lazy and the lame,
For the men who had no shame.


From far and near in herds they came,
To add to REME Workshops fame,
And now they daily swing the lead,
In workshop, billet and sickbed.


Their diseases spread to other ranks,
Especially those employed in tanks,
Experienced scroungers like the rest,
With these men this Corps is blessed.


But when the time comes when you’re in need,
The REME boys will act with speed,
They'll swing a hook and not the lead,
Transport a tank on a flatbed.


Jack up your jeep, change a tire,
Fix your scout car with bailing wire,
Jump with Paras - ride with tanks,
And never ask you for your thanks.


So good luck REME, here's three cheers,
In 2012, it's sixty years.

To Lofty Meadows, a good friend.

Len Payne.

OOps scratch . By my reckoning in 2012 it will be 70 years. Transatlantic spelling is forgiven. Wonder how much of the Corps will be left after the current round of cut backs. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

We fixed them, but, didn`t put all the bolts back in so it would break again and we`d have to fix it again.

How else do think we were going to get our beer, buy it?
The mind boggles.

He is a Gunner, remember.

Not many, probably, as they will more than likely contract the work out to civvies as the Army won`t be big enough to need support arms.

'oops .. you're right BobG .. 70 it is, when I revamped it recently to 2012 I forgot to add the ten years since I last edited it ... I wrote it way back in the early seventies when I was 'Poet Laureate' to the British Ex Servicemen's Association here in Vancouver, Canada ... hence tire, not tyre ... when will you 'limey's' get it right.
