Royal New Zealand Electrical and Mechanical Engineers
The Royal New Zealand Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (RNZEME) was a New Zealand Army Corps comprising Army trained tradesmen (craftsmen) who repaired Army equipment wherever New Zealand Forces served.
RNZEME personnel were attached to regular squadrons. These attachments were known as Light Aid Detachments (LAD’s) who in turn were supported by Field Workshops. Field workshops were located in Burnham, Linton, Waiouru, Papakura and Singapore until 1998. Field Workshops were in turn supported by a Base Workshop located in Trentham.
Due to New Zealand Defence Force restructuring, the RNZEME was disbanded in 1996 and merged with the Royal New Zealand Army Ordnance Corps (RNZAOC) and Royal New Zealand Corps of Transport (RNZCT) to become its present unit, the Royal New Zealand Army Logistic Regiment (RNZALR).
