    My Father David Dickie REME
    Juno Beach 6 June 1944
    Attached to
    80th Assault Squadron RE
    5th Assault Regiment RE
    1st Assault Brigade RE
    79th Armoured Division
    I’m hoping all the above information is correct
    I’m travelling to Juno Beach this year (2019)
    I’m arriving early @ 2/6/19 to avoid the rush and explore the area for a few days before the 6th June
    I plan to follow my Fathers route through France, Holland and crossing the Rhine on a 30 day tour to honour him and his colleagues
    There’s a lot of preparation and very little time before I go
    I’ve packed my bucket and spade!
    I’d appreciate any information or links to web pages with information on the route of 80th Assault Squadron RE, are there any veteran associations active?
    One persisting query is his rank, many sites quote “ACTING Quartermaster Sergeant”
    For the abbreviation AQMS
    I’ve always thought it is
    ARTICIFER Quartermaster Sergeant
    Can anyone establish which is correct for the rank in REME
    I’d appreciate any help with my adventure

    And, yes, AQMS ought to be Artificer Quartermaster Sergeant.
