Please find details below relating to the upcoming ANZAC Day march ceremonies.
 
With the day falling close after the Easter long weekend, there are some thoughts that the participation may be less, as many opt to have an extended holiday week away with family and friends.
For this reason, the times are approximate, and it is suggested that you arrive at least half an hour earlier, (as noted below) in case the step off time is brought forward to accommodate the smaller group participation, and the less time impacted on each section marching.
The RAEME Association of Victoria look forward to seeing as many new faces as possible at the march and subsequently at the after function.

 HISTORY

The AEME Association (Vic Division) was formed in 1945. In November 1948 the EME Corps (UK) was granted the title “Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers” by King George VI.  In November 1949 the Corps was granted the title “Royal Corps of Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers” making us the only “Royal Corps” in the Australian Army at that time. Later the “Royal Corps” title was withdrawn and we became known as “The Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Corps”.

In 1961 Parliament granted approval to add the “Royal” title to the AEME Association, and we became the Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Association (Victoria), and Incorporated under this name.
