I didn't realise it til late on in my service, but I love the REME. Main reason was because as far as I can make out, we are the only Corps that can TRULY say that we can do our own jobs AND the jobs of those we serve with. As an armourer that always served with infantry units in LAD's, I could, and did, soldier as well as any infanteer. When the chips were down, so did the VM's, and the leccys. Be proud boys of the REME, and be proud of the saying; By Skill and By Fighting, because it's true.
