    The REME Bible - Craftsmen of the Army gives only one page to Burma - specifically the retreat. It mentions a book by Field Marshal Slim 'Defeat into Victory'.

    Try the REME past and present web site or the REME Museum.

    Hope you strike lucky!

    Craftsman, welcome aboard, and thank you for your grandfather's service to Crown and Country.

    The Official History volumes for the Far East may help. Also the American histories, as the British and American engineers worked together on such important projects as the Burma Road.

    Hi I'm new as well and trying to figure out what my grampar did in Burma. He was in the REME but he never spoke about it apart from to say he worked his way across Burma from India. I'm finding information on the Burma campaign quite spars. Keep me posted if you find anything out. Good luck
