The Royal School of Military Engineering

The Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME) is the main training establishment for the British Army's Royal Engineers. After they have successfully completed their basic training, members of the Corps of Royal Engineers receive their combat engineering and other special-to-arm training at the RSME.

History

The RSME was founded by Major (later General Sir) Charles Pasley, as the Royal Engineer Establishment in 1812. It was renamed the School of Military Engineering in 1868 and granted the "Royal" prefix in 1962.

Location

The RSME is based at several sites in Chatham in Kent, England. It also has a subsidiary site at Camberley in Surrey. Its mission is "To deliver trained and motivated Military Engineers to meet the operational requirements of the Armed Forces".
