Hi I am looking for anyone who may have known or worked with my late father Sgt David Rushton in the 658 Squadron Army Air Corps.(REME) We lived in Minden between 1974-1978 where I went to a British school. Sadly my father died in a helicopter crash in Lemgo on 12th May 1978, I was 6 at the time. I am particularly trying to trace a Jim Fisher and also keen to know which Barrack's we would have been living in. I have a feeling it may have been St George's but I am not sure. My mum died at a young age also and therefore I am desperate for any information that could help me to piece together the missing links I have from my early childhood Thank you in advance Nicola Weatherley (Ne Rushton)

Robbie Cryer 1719

I'm a currently serving officer and it turns out that my great uncle, Ron George McColl was a REME Craftsman. Ron died over 15 years ago but his daughter is very keen to learn about his service. We understand that he served in the '50s and we believe he served in Gibraltar. Between deaths in the family and dementia starting to affect some of the elderly people, we've lost this bit of our history. We wanted to know if anyone can help us find out where he served and if anyone knew him. Understanding that this is a long shot. Most grateful for any information. Robbie

Simon Breeze 1686

Just wondering if any body remembers my dad, Mike Breeze.

He started with REME in the 60's in Carlisle then Minden/Munster in the mid-late 60's but can't remember which regiment.

Met my mum in Southend whilst posted at Shoeburyness (I was born in 1967).

Was posted to Kuwait as part of the KLT and we lived on the IBI camp. two names I recall are Bob Oliver and Sam Galbraith (both had married German wives).

Was then posted to Lippstadt and attached to 27 RA in Churchill Barracks and we lived at 11 Lessing strasse. Was he with 4 Armd then? He was a gun fitter and worked on the M 109's and did a 6 month? tour of Ireland in The Maze in about 1977.

Was then with 39 RA in Sennelager (again was this 4 Armd?) then Detmold in the early 80's and finally at Larkhill until 84/5.

I am sure there are gaps here but would be good to know some more about these places and postings.

He never did his 'Tiffy' and came out as a Staff Sargent.

Lizzie Taylor (BlueBelle) 1672

My name is Lizzie Taylor. I'm researching material for a book that I'm writing on the British Army in Tripolitania, Libya (I lived in Homs, Libya as a child 1959-61 where my father was the WO1(ASM) REME attached to 2nd Royal Tank regiment) and I would like to ask if you have any photos, documents and memories of your time in Tripolitania, Libya with any REME LADs attached to resident or visiting regiments/units or, if you were at any of the REME Workshops (1 Inf Wksp, Command Wksp, 5 Medium Wksp, 19 Armd Wksp, Station Wksp, 61 Stn Wksp etc) in Tripoli (Gurgi, Gialo, Kassala) that you'd be willing to share with me please?
Garrisons over different years between 1943 and 1966 were at Homs, Tripoli, Tajuira, Sabratha, Zavia, Misurata and Tarhuna.
Regiments/Units included 2RTR, 6RTR, Queen's Bays, 14/20H, 4/7DG, 13/18H, 38 Coy RASC, 1 Coy RASC, 595 Ord Depot RAOC, 6 Fd Regt RA, 26 Fd Regt RA, 48 Fd Regt RA, 80 LAA Regt EA, 3 RHA, Green Howards, Royal Scots, RIF, KRRC, BMH 36 Coy RAMC, Royal Signals, 22 Regt RE, 25 Armd Bde, 10 Armd Div et al.
I need high-resolution scans of the original photos or, if that proves troublesome, the original photos themselves here with me so that I can scan them professionally. All costs would be met with a cheque in your favour and the originals returned to you by registered mail with everything scanned onto a disc or USB key for your further use.
All photographs from you and used will be credited to you as 'Full Name REME'.

The book will be the first ever on the topic, photo-heavy, celebrating in detail the regiments and units in their postings to Libya. A very special focus will be on REME, the regiments, the soldiers, the wives, the children, attached civilians, living and working, the interactions with the local communities, the barracks, the towns, the architecture, the history, the politics, the foreign policy, the military strategy, National Service, the vehicles used and schemes and exercises and interactions with any other units or with the Amphibious Warfare Squadron and the Royal Marines.
If you know of other ex-REME soldiers who were in Tripoli/Homs or who were detached to REME workshops or elsewhere in Tripolitania, I'd be grateful if you could point me in their direction.

Have a look at my Tripolitania forum thread by clicking the link, you'll see some great photos and find some interesting stuff to read. I'm always updating it.

Can you assist me in my quest please? I do hope so.
Looking forward to your reply and hopefully, loads of photos.

Oh, I'm an ex-BlueBelle too! My brother, Niel Taylor served in REME/QDG/REME too, ex-Arborfield 69C and billeted in B Coy C Spider exactly as our father had been in Oct 1938. My Grandfather was AOC/REME too, as was his father (not REME as not formed) as an armourer with 4 Rifle Bde. Arte et Marte



Keith (Steve) Chamberlain 1671

I am trying to trace an old Army friend of mine - John McCarthy.

We last served together in the Independant (Arabian Penisular) Field Troop RE and 32 Field Squadron RE in Ripon, Aden and Borneo (Kuching) between 1962 - 1965.

At the time, John was a Lcpl Vehicle Mechanic who had recently been compulsorily transferred from the RE to REME.

In 1964 he would have been about 20 to 22 years of age.

His home town was Liverpool.

If you are able to trace John McCarthy, I have no objection to you passing my E-Mail address/Home Address/Telephone Number on to him.

Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Starkey 1767

1955-1957 I did my basic training at Blandford and then went to Arborfield for training on tank electronics. I rebelled because I thought that it was dangerous to have us studying all day and then having to do drill and barrack cleaning in the evening - dangerous because we were told that if we made a mistake when working on the gun electronics under the counterweight the counterweight could come down and crush us. I thought that if we were only half awake the chance of such an accident was increased so I wrote a letter to the Daily Mirror and subsequently I was hauled up before the C/O and then transferred to Malvern for training as a vehicle electrician from where I was posted to Derna in Libya where I stayed until demob in 1957. I should like to hear from any of the many guys I met during my National Service.

Peter Noyce 1745

Hi, I wonder if anybody can give me any information about an inscription on a candlestick I have. The inscription engraved on a brass plaque reads "zur erinnerung an die 11 inf wksp REME German Staff Minden March 1966". I think this translates to "In remberance of the 11 Inf WKSP REME German Staff Minden March 1966". Or possibly "a memento of". It is a very nice large 4 candle arts and crafts style brass and copper hand beaten candlelabra. I bought it from a house clearance sale some years ago near Southampton and thought I'd try and find out about it as it is such a great and well-made item. Many thanks.

Robert Leonard Farmer [ Bob ] 1675

I was one of the last National Servicemen, joining REME in 1960 as part of intake 60/10 at no 1 Training Batallion at Blandford. I was sent to no 9 platoon A company under Corporal/ Sergeant Derricut. The next stop was Depot where we learned to use an SLR, Sterling and Bren gun. In October I went to Aden and was posted to the Independent Armoured Squadron Workshop in Little Aden [Falaise Camp]. The next excitement is that we were rushed up to Kuwait to help repel a threatened invasion by Iraq which included the gaff of arriving at RAF Khormakser without our rifles and someone was sent back to camp to get them all. I wasn't long in Kuwait as I contrived to cut my thumb on a rusty screw which went septic and I was casevacked first to Bahrein and then to Aden where I spent a very enjoyable two months on the balcony at Steamer Point Hospital while they put my thumb right. Wounds do not heal in Aden so after six weeks it was realised my thumb would not buck the trend, I was again casevacked, this time to the UK and the Royal Herbert Hospital at Woolwich. After this I went to the LAD at 24 Signals at Catterick and finished my time there. If anybody has them, I would love to have some photographs of the Falaise Camp as all my luggage failed to arrive in the UK when I came home. Bob Farmer

Whilst I never served in the REME I had a good friend who transfered from the Queens Regt to the REME who I am trying to trace. His name is Martin Lyons, I believe he has now left the Service and is living in the North of England. His wife`s name is Sue. If anyone knows Martin or anyway I can find him your help would be appreciated, pse feel free to email the above address direct. I appreciate security is important so if you have a contact address for Martin pse feel free to pass my email address onto him, just tell him it is from Martin and Carol, 3 Queens. Many thanks
