Worth passing on...The 70th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers is 1st October or rather the Corps was open for business on that day must have taken a while to get everything in place...
Best regards
Steve...former ACF REME

Ah well, here we go again ... updated for today's celebration

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 seventy years.

To Lofty Meadows, a good friend.

Len Payne.

Ciphers

Thank you very much, much appreciated

You have captured the "can do/will do" attitude of the Corps particularly in field conditions when there was tremendous pride in keeping the parent unit fully equipted and ready to go.

One of my best muckers while in Munster (1952/54) was a REME Cpl by the name of Evan (Lofty) Meadows, ex Arborfield Boy of about 1949/50 vintage, he came from Portsmouth .. anyone run across him.
