MES (Wks) Northern Ireland

Military Engineering Services (Works) was made up of a PQE, a GE, a dozen or so Clk Wks and a draughtsman. We were split up all over the province and worked directly for the PSA (Property Services Agency) as Technical Officers providing a facilities management and new works service to the military and crown estate. The PQE, GE and draughtsman were based at Harmony Hill, Lisburn. The rest of us had duty stations elsewhere, including Lisburn, Holywood, Antrim, Ballykelly, Omagh, Ballykindler. We all worked as civilians but got together as a Unit every 6 months or so for a days military training .... Just to remind us that we were still in the Army!!

Hope this helps.
