Chris Howard: REME and the Forgotten War
Posted on: Mon 9 Sep 2019
After doing a Carpentry Apprenticeship, Chris found he didn’t like it. He wanted to become a motor mechanic but at age 19 was too old to start another apprenticeship. In a circuitous way, he became an Army Aircraft Technician in the newly formed (UK) Army Air Corps, and that led to overseas service. It’s a background to the era seldom heard.
