As the British Army’s professional engineers – Soldiers and Officers employed within the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) are the technicians, mechanics and fabricators that consistently inspect, repair, modify and maintain the large array of equipment that the British Army has to offer. Wherever the British Army are, whatever the unit is, there you will find REME.
As technologies advance and equipment becomes more complex, men and women of REME have to be up to the challenges of training and keeping up to date with modern engineering.
Whether it’s maintaining the Apache Attack Helicopter, repairing a Multiple Launch Rocket System or recovering a Challenger tank, REME ensures that the equipment of the British Army is ready for action and have been doing so proudly since 1st October 1942.
Motto: Arte Et Marte (By Skill and by fighting)
Meanwhile, two major civil engineering groups are playing an active part in the restoration of the Redsand Towers. They are Mowlem Marine (now Carillion) and Taylor Woodrow. Project Redsand are extremely grateful to both companies for their foresight and dedication to the conservation of our heritage. Both Mowlem and Taylor Woodrow have provided costly services to Project Redsand without charge. Both companies have supported the Project from the outset and without their support, this project would be difficult to realise.
