Cap badge, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, 1954 (c)
This unit's badge depicts a horse rearing with a coronet of fleur-de-lis around its neck and a chain attached to the coronet over its back. The horse stands on a globe and above it is a scroll inscribed 'REME' surmounted by a crown. Behind the horse there is a lightning flash. This symbolises electrical engineering while the globe stands for the world-wide role of the unit. The chained horse symbolises power under control.
