HQRE 4 Div

This unit is also unknown to me, so I can't write anything interesting here until someone tells me about it.  Please email me with any history you might have.  REgards, Gordon


HQRE 4 Div was an RE unit with an establishment based on the standard RE Regiment of that period. Headquarters element (HQRE Troop), 2 Field Squadrons (5 Fd & 25 Fd) 44 Field Park Squadron and a REME Workshops supplying engineer support to the 4th Infantry Division.
HQRE Troop formed the Engineer Cell of HQ 4th Division, the Field Squadrons were spread to support other units within the Division and the Field Park provided engineers materiel support to the "regiment". Happy days with most of it spent on exercise February to November!!

This was part of 4 ADSR. We were administered by the Signals Regt but located in the HQ block at Wentworth Barracks. We had a full colonel, a G2, 2 G3 officers, a chief clerk and 5 other ranks. Under Division there was 26 Regt, 35 Regt, 2 Armd Sqn plus 44Fd Sp Sqn
