This is a list of the members of the Corps of Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers as of June 1964. It was intended to be Volume 2 of Colonel R.H. Hodgson’s History of RCEME to 1946, but is published today as a stand-alone document. Unlike the list of members of RCEME from 1944 to 1946, this was a print from the central records of the Canadian Army at the time and is quite accurate. If you are searching for an ancestor in the list, keep in mind that the earlier list ends in 1946...

This is the Second World War History of the 1st Anti-tank Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. At the end of the war, all units in the Canadian Army Overseas were directed to prepare a summary history for the Directorate of History before they returned to Canada. The histories were written for a military audience, in the “staff duties” format of the time.  The original of this document is in the Canadian War Museum, and has faded with time. The history was scanned into a computer and edited...

During the Second World War, the Canadian Army Overseas prepared a looseleaf reference to all the vehicles used by the First Canadian Army in Europe. Many of those vehicles were manufactured in Canada and were part of the Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) truck family. The book was intended for use by supply, maintenance, and operations staff officers, and contained the information needed for the identification, classification and performance appraisal of the vehicles used by the Canadian Army.

Starting in 1943, the technical documentation needed for the repair and maintenance of equipment in the Canadian Army was issued in the form of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Regulations (Canada). Every major equipment had a complete set of documents that detailed every aspect of its repair. By 1945, the system had matured into an independently organized and indexed structure, which proved to be sufficiently flexible to remain in effect until the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces...

This is a brief history of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers during the Second World War. It was written in 1958 as a precursor to the history of RCEME that was being proposed at that time (see A History of RCEME to 1946 by Colonel R.H. Hodgson). The author was a RCEME officer during the war, had prepared the RCEME operations manual after the war, and was very knowledgeable about the Corps History.

To solve the problem of crossing fire-swept ground in Normandy in 1944, General G.G. Simmonds ordered the conversion of American M7 self-propelled guns into infantry carriers. The work was carried out by an ad-hoc group of RCEME workshops under the code name “Kangaroo”. The name stuck to the converted vehicles. To operate the armoured personnel carriers, a new unit, the 1st Canadian Armoured Carrier Regiment was formed, and continued in service for the rest of the war. This is the war diary...

This is the history of the the first 50 years of the Corps of Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. The Corps was formed in 1944 to consolidate the repair and maintenance of Canadian Army equipment under one organization. With the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces in 1968, the Corps was renamed to the Land Ordnance Engineering Branch (LORE) and had several other name changes before returning to its original name in 2013. The Corps celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2019....

The CDX radar was a Second World War Canadian-developed 10-centimetre band fire-control radar used for coast defence gunnery. It had its own displacement convertor, and was capable of determining fall-of-shot spotting data in both range and bearing. This report summarizes tests performed at Devil's Battery, Halifax, N.S. in April, 1943 on the prototype CDX equipment.

Corporal Earl Hodge served for more than 30 years in the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. He was an accomplished artist and wood carver, and created many drawings reflecting aspects of RCEME life and heritage. Most RCEME units have a copy of at least one of his works on display. This is a collection of some of his RCEME cartoons. A summary of his life and career is included in the document.

The Canadian Army Manual of Training (CAMT) was the authority for general organization, doctrine, and training for the Canadian Army from the Second World War to about 1968. Within the CAMT, the 11-x series pertained to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. Each of the manuals was revised periodically, so the date of the manual is relevant.

The 18-pounder Field Gun in Canadian Service by Doug Knight relates the career of the 18-pounder gun in the Royal Canadian Artillery, from the first order from Vickers in 1903 until its retirement during the Second World War. The emphasis in the book is on the gun and, in addition to its service overseas, describes its service in Canada during the First World War, mechanization in the 1930s, and traces the individual history of some of the surviving guns. The text is well illustrated by colour...

In 1953, the first intake of the RCEME Apprentice plan began training at the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers School in Kingston, Ontario. The aim of the plan was to train selected young men as soldier-tradesmen and to provide them with the required educational standards that would enable them to advance to senior non-commissioned officers in the Corps. The last class graduated in 1968. Out of the 1,010 members enrolled between October 1952 to June 1968, 696 graduated as...

En 1944, le Corps du génie électrique et mécanique Royal Canadien (GEMRC) a été formé et a pris en charge la responsabilité de l’entretien et de la réparation de l’équipement de l’Armée canadienne. À partir du « RCEME Quarterly » en 1949, le Corps publia un bulletin périodique qui décrivait les événements du Corps, ainsi que des articles techniques sur l’entretien de l’équipement. Le nom et le format du bulletin ont changé au fil du temps, tout comme le nom du Corps...

The British Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers was formed in 1942 to repair and maintain all the equipment in the British Army. This handbook was issued to promulgate the organization and doctrine for the operation of the new Corps in the Field. Since the Canadian Army used the same doctrine, it was used by the Canadian repair organization (the Engineering Branch of the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps that later became the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers).

This is a reproduction of a collection of documents that were produced at the end of the Second World War. Each unit in First Canadian Army was required to write a short history of the unit before it was disbanded or returned to Canada. The history was usually based on the unit war diary. The accounts of the units of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (RCEME) were compiled into this document. The original is in the Directorate of History and Heritage in Ottawa and is a poor...

The Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (then just called the Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Corps in 1994. As part of the celebration, a commemorative book was written that summarized many aspects of the Corps history. The hard cover book from which the scan was generated is the only copy that is signed by the complete production team.

To solve the problem of crossing fire-swept ground in Normandy in 1944, General G.G. Simmonds ordered the conversion of American M7 self-propelled guns into infantry carriers. The work was carried out by an ad-hoc group of RCEME workshops under the code name “Kangaroo”. The name stuck to the converted vehicles. To operate the armoured personnel carriers, a new unit, the 1st Canadian Armoured Carrier Regiment was formed, and continued in service for the rest of the war. This is the unit...
