Hi folks , opsec allowing can anyone tell me how the REME is set up in Bastion ie are all units reme bods all working in a central pool/lad or do the units retain their tradesmen in their own unit lines ? Thanks for any info.
The majority of the 1st line LAD personnel are drawn in to what is curiously called the Task Force Helmand LAD. Some units keep there own REME assets, but the majority are pooled. That's the way it was when i left in September 2007 and the incoming unit carried on the same policy.
I found myself on the ground supporting artillery light gun troops while my parent unit was engineers.
