I'm trying to find information on the 10th Field Workshop REME Tidworth which is where my land rover lightweight was base. I want to find out about vehicle markings and possible some pictures. I've checked on line but not had much joy.
I'm at that stage of the rebuild where I can start looking for the little thing that make the vehicle unique to that company.
Any info or pointers would be appreciated.
Army registration number was 49FL76
If I'm correct in this then 10 Field Workshop were based during your vehicle's service life at Bordon, with a lot of roulemont tours of NI during the early 70's, up until their tour around '74/'75 where upon their return to the UK they did a swap with 3 Field Workshop who were in Tidworth, where 10 Fd Wksp were then based, with further tours of NI, until after your vehicle was cast.
The 70's were a bit before my time to be of any use to you I'm afraid, but try gooooogyling 10 Field Workshop REME and have a look for entries with regards to a book called 'Craftsmen Of The Army Volume 2' as there will be info on the unit in there. Unfortunately I only have Volume 1 which covers up to post WWII and the far east.
I'm not aware of any special unit markings, except for some vehicles that had stickers denoting the Unit/District/Division they were part of.
Good luck with the refurb of the lightweight, keep us all updated on your progress.
