The REME Was not formed until 1942


Added; It looks like he was a Sapper in the Royal Engineers

His medal card is on the The National Archives web site and you can download it to see what medals he was awarded it cost £3.36 to download or you can ask for a look up on ancestry for both his medal card and to see if his service record has survived, only abt 30% did survive the bombing in WW2
