The Corps of Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (RAEME; pronounced Raymee) is a corps of the Australian Regular Army that has responsibility for the maintenance and recovery of all land electrical and mechanical equipment.
Prior to being given the title of ‘Royal’, the Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (AEME) were raised on 1 December 1942. Some 64 years later, on 1 December 2006, the last independent RAEME Workshop was disbanded.
RAEME soldiers continue in their role to provide support through attachment to other units in Tech Support Troops, Sections or Platoons.
