The Institution of Royal Engineers (InstRE)

The Royal Engineers Historical Society


The Royal Engineers Historical Society (REHS) seeks to revive and sustain an interest in the history and heritage of the Royal Engineers both amongst the family of the Corps and wider afield, providing a lively forum for discussion and debate on Military Engineering and related issues from the tactical to the strategic. It is also designed to attract and engage external public and academic engagement, including the generation of articles for publication in the RE Journal, and exposing the Corps’ past story and current development to a wider audience. It therefore serves a number of roles, including the fostering of professional development and in attracting some useful reputational benefit. In so doing, the REHS supports the overarching remit of the Institution:
"to promote and advance the science of military engineering and to promote the military efficiency of the Corps of Royal Engineers”
