REME 75 – Celebrate 75 Years of REME at REME Museum
REME Museum is delighted to be hosting REME Corps 75th Birthday commemorations on October 1st. There will be a wide range of exciting activities and family events to mark this special occasion.
This fun day will provide plenty of activities for visitors to the Museum and the REME Corps community. These will include a children’s obstacle course manned by uniformed REME personnel along with lots of other sports activities stands where our visitors can pit their skills against some REME Reserves. We will have historic vehicles on display alongside more modern recovery vehicles and there will be Corps engineering displays. We also will have a REME band and other spectacular surprises, to be announced.
No birthday would be complete without a birthday cake, although our cake will be giant-sized and REME-themed. It will be cut by one of the founder members of REME Corps, accompanied by one of our youngest serving Craftsman.
