Remembrance

REME Remembers

Remembrance is an important part of the lives of every serving and retired REME soldier, officer and their families.  The REME Charity is also committed to remembering all those who have fallen and continues to support their families long after.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

The Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers participates in a number of remembrance events throughout the year, including, the annual service at the NMA, Field of Remembrance (ticketed event), Remembrance Sunday and the March past the Cenotaph (ticketed event).

 

National Memorial Arboretum

The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. It is a living and lasting memorial.

The Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers has a permanent memorial to the past and present members of the Corps on the site.  The memorial was entirely funded by The REME Charity.  Every year we hold a service of remembrance and celebration at The REME Memorial, which includes a military band, a parade of The REME Association Standard Bearers and a Service by the Corps Padre.

This years service will take place Friday 19 May 2017 which is the 75th Anniversary of the signing of the Royal Warrant that lead to the creation of the Corps.   The service will start at 1100hrs and last approximately 45 minutes, it will be concluded with a buffet lunch.  The event is free and we would like as many members of the REME Family to attend as possible.  Please let the team in RHQ know you are attending the event.
