 HISTORY

The AEME Association (Vic Division) was formed in 1945. In November 1948 the EME Corps (UK) was granted the title “Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers” by King George VI.  In November 1949 the Corps was granted the title “Royal Corps of Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers” making us the only “Royal Corps” in the Australian Army at that time. Later the “Royal Corps” title was withdrawn and we became known as “The Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Corps”.

In 1961 Parliament granted approval to add the “Royal” title to the AEME Association, and we became the Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Association (Victoria), and Incorporated under this name.
