  1. Hi

    I am trying to put together an ORBAT of REME TA units in the 1985-89 timeframe. I have "Craftsmen of the Army" which has helped. Inquiries to the REME Museum and Association have not faired well since the old CVHQ REME was apparently bad at sending the museum/association information. So I am wondering if anyone here can help.

    Thank you in advance.

    This is what I have:
    24 Specialist Units (as per Peedle's Encyclopedia of the Territorial Army)
    3 Fd Wksp (reg cadre filled out by TA)
    15 Fd Wksp (reg cadre filled out by TA)
    17 Port & Maritime Wksp
    209 Fd Wksp RCZ
    201 Fd Wksp RCZ
    211 Fd Wksp RCZ
    215 Recovery Coy
    216 Port Wksp
    271 Telecomm Wksp
    204 Engineer Support Wksp
    224 Reclamation Pl
    227 Reclamation Pl

    Missing 12. Of those there should be 4 more Reclamation Pls, 1 each for each Armd Wksp.

    22 LAD's
    5 for the Yeomanry Regts
    6 for the RA (V) Regts
    11 for the RS (V) Regts

    10 Regt Wksps for the RE (V) Regts
    2 Bde Wksps for the 2 Eng. Bdes
    12 Regt Wksps for the RCT (V) Regts
    36 Sqn Wksps for each RCT (V) Sqn (except MC or TRC)
