Does two years with the 22nd of Foot qualify me?

Garry, being anti-tank we had two REME gunfitters allocated to us and I have happy memories of the way we worked together.

REME did that stand for Rough Engineering Made Easy :wink: and of course RE was just Rough Engineering. On doing some light Research on Searchlight Batteries in WW2 I was surprised to see that they came under the Royal Engineers.
