I have nothing to put here as I don't even know what this unit did.  If you can tell me, I'll happily put it on here for interest.  REgards, Gordon


The original and best Royal Engineers Manning and Records office, we all knew it existed even if we had no idea who worked there or how big it was.  I'm sure anyone who worked there was roundly cursed or insulted every payday by a good few members of the Corps, although often the faults lay with transit delays, poor admin within units or whatever.  Whatever the background, here's the holding page for REMRO, and if you can tell me anything about it then I'd be glad to put the info on here.
