Tom Baker writes…….

I was a Tech Storeman with R.E.M.E. 1956 – 69.  I served with the A.A.C. in 652 Squadron, then with No.1 Wing followed by 71 A/C Workshop in Detmold.  There my first store was a 3 ton truck in the hangar and I remember changing tool kits from R.A.F. to Army.  I was then moved to where the Armoury was to order all the equipment etc. to change to Workshop status.

My O.C. was Captain Taylor, who had a boxer dog.  S/Sgt Foster came from 4 Arm’d W/S to take over as Q.M.  There was a German civilian called Alfred who collected stamps and did the Lotto for anyone.  I was in charge of the Armoury.  The Corporals Mess was in the cellar under H.Q. block.
