The present-day Parish of Greatham lies in the county of Hampshire, on either side of the old Farnham (Surrey) to Petersfield Turnpike. The ‘Domesday Book’ of 1086 recorded Greatham as... More > being ‘Terra Regis’, a Latin term meaning ‘Land of the King’, indicating that this was once a Royal manor belonging to William the Conqueror himself. In later years, the manor passed through many families by marriage and by purchase, including the Devenish, Marshall, Norton, Freeland, Love, Chawner and Coryton families. The name of the village has changed many times, however slightly, over the years. Greteham, Grietham, Gretham, Grutham, Gratham all derived from two separate words, the ‘Old-English’ (Anglo-Saxon) ‘ham’, meaning ‘village, estate, manor or homestead’ and an old Scandinavian word ‘griot’ or ‘gryt’, meaning ‘stones or stony ground’. Thus the name ‘Greotham’ came into being, literally a ‘stony estate’ or ‘farm on gravel’.< Less

The story of the War in Korea and of the part played by the REME from 1950 to 1953 as told by various individuals of that Corps, makes fascinating reading. The support and devotion to their... More > colleagues is most apparent, but typical of the British soldier, these experiences are balanced with a sense of sympathy for the unfortunate Korean civilian population caught up in the conflict, and it wouldn't be a true story of the British soldier without its sprinkling of 'squaddie' humour. John Dutton has provided an excellent compilation of personal accounts in this comprehensive story of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers at war where the positioning of Light Aid Detachments and Field Workshops was just as important to senior commanders in their tactical planning as was the medical back-up of a Regimental Aid Post or a Field Ambulance.< Less
Korea 1950-53 - Recounting REME Involvement By Peter Gripton & John Dutton
eBook (ePub): $6.25
In due course an official history of the Korean war was produced, dealing with the campaign in general, and the British Commonwealth Forces in particular, covering every aspect of the fighting and... More > political background. This book has been compiled to fill that gap. Many books have been published on the Korean campaign but none to my knowledge mentioning the Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. It was the first war waged by the United Nations to curb aggression and uphold the free way of life. It was the first occasion in which an integrated Division – composed of units and individuals from many Commonwealth countries – served successfully together. It was perhaps unique in the variety of engineering problems that emerged as the campaign progressed. Therefore, this book will have an appeal throughout the British Commonwealth, and in particular to all members of the REME even if the units that they served with are not specifically mentioned.< Less
