Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME)
This corps is described as the 'British Army's Professional Engineers'.
Prior to REME's formation, maintenance was the responsibility of several different corps but during the Second World War, the increase in quantity and complexity of equipment exposed the flaws in this system.
Thus The Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers was formed in 1942.
REME has its HQ at MOD Lyneham in Wiltshire.
The Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers beaded belt is designed on the stable belt in a horizontal style. It has the exact stripes of navy, yellow and red.
Our REME belt is hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.
Our REME Belt is made using the highest quality leather to ensure our belts are extremely long lasting and durable.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The old Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers tie is not a tie at all. It’s a Manyatta belt.
IMPORTANT - HOW TO MEASURE A BELT:
We believe in being totally honest with our customers. Like a bespoke suit or pair of shoes, outstanding craftsmanship takes time. When the order is placed, the mamas in Kenya start beading your belt, utilising their cultural and ancestral skills. Once this is complete, the belt is sent to us in the UK. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
