This group of photos were taken by the son of Eric Wearmouth 52B on a visit to the cemetery.  Eric thought they would be of interest to our readers and, who knows, may bring in visitors who are interested in both  R.E.M.E. and Arborfield.  ‘The Editor’.

Editor’s Note.

The appointment of Conductor was carried over when certain trades and personnel were transferred from the R.A.O.C. to R.E.M.E. on the formation of the Corps in 1942.  It was one of a small group of senior positions held in the British Army, possibly the oldest.  The equivalent R.E.M.E. rank was that of WO1 or ASM and so it was gradually faded away from R.E.M.E. with the passing of those who held the title.
