NOW AM CONFUSED AND IT DOESNT TAKE MUCH !!!

He was in it in the first world war ??????

No, that is not possible. It was not formed until 1942.

However, someone who had been in WW1 might also have been in REME in WW2

Also known as 'Royal Engineers Minus Education'. :lol: I believe Benny Hill served with them, and my Dad is ex-R.E.M.E. [1952-54]

If he was in it in WW1, then it was not the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers that he served in. It is possible that this is some abbreviation relating to the Royal Engineers (RE) followed by a trade or location. I don't know enough about the REs in WW1 to comment further but it seems a likely bet.

They did have electrical engineers in the Royal Engineers during WW1 and I seem to remember a QSA passing through my hands to electrical engineer RE.

Hi there,

Just a thought, are you sure its REME?

Reason being is that there were units such as the RME (Royal Marine Engineers)

or

REMT (Remount Department)

As I say, just a thought. The lettering is similar and these were WW1 units/regiments. :unsure:

Hope this helps?

Regards, Womo
