The 2018 Reunion was another great success with 67 people attending the annual event. Many friendships were renewed one being that of ex “boss” of 1 Base Wksps Electrical Section Keith Poole.  Having seen the Reunion Flyer in Friday Files he thought that although he had been in the regular Army, and the Reunion was primarily for CMF and Res he decided he knew a lot of Res RAEME members and decided to attend. It is good to see Regulars attending.
