image Research

Our Archives and Object collections are open to the public to access and research. In order to do this, you will need to book an appointment during opening hours, details of which can be found on the Visit page.

For information on costs and procedures please see below.

Digital Photo Archive

You can view, search and purchase prints of a portion of the REME Museum’s extensive photographic collection via our online archive. Digitised as part of a joint project with Max Communications, these images represent only a small portion of our collection. New photos are added to the site regularly.

Family History

The Museum offers an ‘Interpretation Service’ of military records of service. By using the record of service obtained from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) Army Personnel Center, together with added material from the Archives and general references on Army history, we are able to produce a ‘potted’ history of the person’s time in the Army.

The Archives do not hold information on individuals, these are held centrally by the MoD.
If you would like to have an interpretation done, the first step is to apply to the Army Personnel Centre in Glasgow for the individual’s record of service:

Once you have received the records, please contact to arrange to have an interpretation done. A fee is charged for this service.
