This is a list of the members of the Corps of Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers as of June 1964. It was intended to be Volume 2 of Colonel R.H. Hodgson’s History of RCEME to 1946, but is published today as a stand-alone document. Unlike the list of members of RCEME from 1944 to 1946, this was a print from the central records of the Canadian Army at the time and is quite accurate. If you are searching for an ancestor in the list, keep in mind that the earlier list ends in 1946...

During the Second World War, the Army Engineering Design Branch of the Canadian Department of Munitions and Supply was responsible for the design and development of military vehicles in Canada. At the end of the war, the AEDB produced an eight volume record that summarized the history and experience of the vehicle design projects. The volumes were: Volume 1 - General and Index; Volume 2 - Armoured Vehicles (other than tanks); Volume 3 - Tanks and Tank Type Vehicles; Volume 4 - Self-propelled...

This is a list of the members of the Corps of Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers from the formation of the Corps in 1944 to 1 October 1946. It was intended to be Volume 1 of Colonel R.H. Hodgson’s History of RCEME to 1946, but is published today as a stand-alone document. The collection of the data was a monumental task, and is described in the document. NOTE: due to limitations in the contemporary documents on which this was based, there are known to be omissions.

Corporal Earl Hodge served for more than 30 years in the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. He was an accomplished artist and wood carver, and created many drawings reflecting aspects of RCEME life and heritage. Most RCEME units have a copy of at least one of his works on display. This is a collection of some of his RCEME cartoons. A summary of his life and career is included in the document.

The 18-pounder Field Gun in Canadian Service by Doug Knight relates the career of the 18-pounder gun in the Royal Canadian Artillery, from the first order from Vickers in 1903 until its retirement during the Second World War. The emphasis in the book is on the gun and, in addition to its service overseas, describes its service in Canada during the First World War, mechanization in the 1930s, and traces the individual history of some of the surviving guns. The text is well illustrated by colour...

The Canadian Army Manual of Training (CAMT) was the authority for general organization, doctrine, and training for the Canadian Army from the Second World War to about 1968. Within the CAMT, the 11-x series pertained to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. Each of the manuals was revised periodically, so the date of the manual is relevant.

This is the Second World War History of the 1st Anti-tank Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. At the end of the war, all units in the Canadian Army Overseas were directed to prepare a summary history for the Directorate of History before they returned to Canada. The histories were written for a military audience, in the “staff duties” format of the time.  The original of this document is in the Canadian War Museum, and has faded with time. The history was scanned into a computer and edited...

To solve the problem of crossing fire-swept ground in Normandy in 1944, General G.G. Simmonds ordered the conversion of American M7 self-propelled guns into infantry carriers. The work was carried out by an ad-hoc group of RCEME workshops under the code name “Kangaroo”. The name stuck to the converted vehicles. To operate the armoured personnel carriers, a new unit, the 1st Canadian Armoured Carrier Regiment was formed, and continued in service for the rest of the war. This is the unit...

Starting in 1943, the technical documentation needed for the repair and maintenance of equipment in the Canadian Army was issued in the form of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Regulations (Canada). Every major equipment had a complete set of documents that detailed every aspect of its repair. By 1945, the system had matured into an independently organized and indexed structure, which proved to be sufficiently flexible to remain in effect until the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces...

This is an introduction to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers for officers undergoing basic training in the Corps in 1963. It provided a guide to customs of the army and the general behaviour of a young officer. It was part of a sequence of documents beginning with “A Guide to Young Officers” in the 1950s, and ending with the issue of the “Corps Standing Orders” about 1965.

1 Canadian Base Ordnance Workshop was the major maintenance, repair and experimental unit supporting the First Canadian Army Overseas during the Second World War. The workshop had about 3,000 men, and was in essence a military factory. Its purpose was repairing the equipment used by the Canadian Army in the United Kingdom and Europe, and such experimental work and special job programs as might, from time to time, be required. It was part of the Engineering Branch of the Royal Canadian Ordnance...

The Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (then just called the Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Corps in 1994. As part of the celebration, a commemorative book was written that summarized many aspects of the Corps history. The hard cover book from which the scan was generated is the only copy that is signed by the complete production team.

This is a brief history of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers during the Second World War. It was written in 1958 as a precursor to the history of RCEME that was being proposed at that time (see A History of RCEME to 1946 by Colonel R.H. Hodgson). The author was a RCEME officer during the war, had prepared the RCEME operations manual after the war, and was very knowledgeable about the Corps History.

The Canadian Army Training Manual (CATM) was published monthly during the Second World War. It provided general  information on new equipment and training. The 50th issue in May 1945 focussed on the new Corps of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. This excerpt includes only the articles on RCEME. It does not include the rest of the issue.

The Canadian Army Manual of Training (CAMT) was the authority for general organization, doctrine, and training for the Canadian Army from the Second World War to about 1968. Within the CAMT, the 11-x series pertained to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. Each of the manuals was revised periodically, so the date of the manual is relevant.

In the 1990s, a large number of historical technical reports were transferred from the Department of National Defence to the Canadian War Museum. The sequence began during the Second World War with original reports on vehicle testing carried out at the Ordnance Proving Grounds (OPG) near Ottawa, Ontario, continued through the reorganizations and re-naming of the facility over the years, and ended with some reports from the Land Engineering and Test Establishment that closed in 1994.
