    Random Harvest
    I have just found in attic a very careworn item with this title. Ten pages typed on a Remington.
    Subtitled The Magazine of G Section, 16 BW REME. Dated 13/7/1945. Pretty fragile but readable. Anyone interested ? From my dad Stanley Francis Bowden who served in Desert Rats.

    The first puzzle is what does BW mean? Base Workshop would fit with being REME, although it is often not abbreviated in that format!

    Have a peek at: REME 16th Base Workshop, CMF and REME - Grandfather's Service Record

    I would suggest you scan the the ten pages here so others can peruse and provide help.

    I assume your father was not in the REME. Not my subject, but the REME often worked alongside other units e.g. a tank regiment, so your father may have known someone who served in 16 Base Workshop.

    There is a REME Museum that might be interested. See: Welcome to the REME Museum

    “Random Harvest” is a film my wife dearly, and so far vainly, hopes will pop up on Talking Pictures TV. I check every week.

    Welcome aboard Robert.
