19 port workshop REME

Recommended Posts


Welcome to the GMIC! And Happy New Year. We're a friendly lot and seem to count among our number at least one expert on d**n near any topic you'd care to name. At least, to the best of my recollection I can't recall many occasions when the whole club has come up dry and some members have a fantastic depth and breadth of knowledge in their specialty areas.

Am I right in assuming that '19 Port Workshop [Company?] were a Royal Engineers or Ordnance Corps unit? I'm also guessing from your reference to war diaries that your interest is First War. At least here in Canada, war diaries for 1914-18 are available but nothing for WWII due to confidentiality rules, and I think the same applies in the UK. |The more detail you can give us on exactly what you're looking for, the more likely it is that someone here can help.

Again, welcome!

19 port workshop detachment was royal electrical mechanical engineers, they landed in North Africa during ww2

As to details I'm looking for anything I can find, I've already posted on countless websites for information, I already have the war dairies but looking to find out as much as I can from other sources :)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea .
