Hi All I'm after some help tracking down War Diaries for my Grandfather. He served with REME through WW2, going from Egypt to Greece (captured, then escaped), then went back to the Middle East, through Italy before a return trip to Greece. I've got some experience with War Diaries and Kew, having looked into my other Grandfather (Royal Artillery, killed in France July '44), and thought at the time that trying to work out how to track the activities of an AGRA was hard work, but I don't know where to start with REME. The salient details of my REME Grandfather's service are: 1st Armoured Brigade Company RASC 16.11.40 - 06.01.42 (including period of capture and escape in Greece) 3 Company Base Depot 06.01.42 - 16.03.42 13 Corps Supply Column 16.03.42 - 30.08.42 Base Depot 30.08.42 - 13.11.42 2 Base Workshops 13.11.42 - 16.01.43 2 Workshop Company REME 16.01.43 - 31.05.43 2 Base Workshops REME 31.05.43 - 03.06.44 139 Infantry Brigade 03.06.44 - Demob (presumably) If anyone can point me to any index for War Diaries or any other useful information I would be very grateful. The best handle I have so far is with 139 Infantry Brigade in Italy when they saw heavy fighting on the Gothic line, I have a vivid diary entry from what I think was the Battle of Gemmano - Wikipedia. Even some sort of context for how REME integrated with parent (?) units would be helpful. If anyone should wonder why, apparently I did such a good job the first time round with my RA Grandfather that my Mum would like me to do the same for her Dad. It took me the best part of a year to put together something the first time for a man who was in Normandy for about two weeks before he disappeared, now I've got six years to look into and am unsure where even to start.
