Status update for the restoration of the World War 1 Gun.

Details and photos of the first stage, being the start of the dismantling process.


On Sunday 13th January 2019, we saw the start of the dismantling process for a WW1 captured gun by 4 BDE.
Thanks goes to the OC and members of 105 WKSP COY and 22ER for their efforts with the dismantling.
Various parts will now be sent for sand blasting and undercoating while others will be refabricated.
All in all a good days work.

Little Mule Cafe

To all the RAEME Fraternity.....

Dates and venue for the last 2 functions of the year have been changed.

Venue - The Little Mule Cafe.

 19 Somerset Pl, Melbourne VIC 3000 (Start times TBC)....

The proprietor is an ex-Spanner and is enthusiastic to host us. You will find the beers are a lot cheaper than other venues that we have been to, be it that they are typically Asian beers. A couple of us have been here for other functions and the beers are fine. If the range is not suitable for some then we can always discuss other options with the owner.

RAEME banner



To preserve the memory of those who have died whilst on active service or at home and to perpetuate the comradeship created by previous or current serving members in any field of RAEME during war or peace.


All personnel who have served in AEME/RAEME in the Regular or Reserve forces, retired members, personnel attached to RAEME or Commonwealth Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers are eligible to join as ordinary members.

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 Later the “Royal Corps” title was withdrawn and we became known as “The Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Corps”.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.
