Famous or Infamous People in the REME

#1
Benny Hill and Jim Fox are two people who were both in the REME and went on to gain notoriety and success in their fields, also Dennis Nielsen was a mass murderer who served in the Catering Corps and munched the flesh of his victims, are there any other famous or otherwise people who have served in our beloved corps and who else served in other corps/regiments? i believe there is quite a famous double olympic gold medal winning rug muncher who served in the AGC, can anyone confirm this for me?!

Benny Hill in your Corps? I was always led to believe that he was in The Royal Signals! I may be wrong though.

Jimmy for ever.

Leslie Grantham from the Eastenders ( cant remember his name ) was based in Osnabrueck in the 60s/70s and killed a taxi driver with a knife!
I couldn't believe it when I heard it but it is based on facts!

Got send into prison, got out, became an actor.

WTF is wrong with that? Good on him. You have had some very good posts in the past and I don't know if this is a personal spat but I don't see how you can slag someone for being proud enough of his background to show it off.

Remember, the way the army is being pushed this may be the only way to keep the badge in use.
