71 Field Workshop (Aircraft)
Originally 1 Light Aircraft Workshop, it was redesignated 71 Aircraft Workshop in 1966.
As HQ 1st Light Aircraft Wing AAC were in Hobart Barracks in 1958, is it possible that the Workshop was also there then,or shortly after?
In 1971 the designation was changed to 71 Field Workshop (Aircraft).
As part of the 1974 Defence Review, 71 and 73 Field Workshop (Aircraft) amalgamated as 71 in Detmold.
In 1992 71 was redesignated 7 Battalion R.E.M.E.
In 1994 7 Battalion commenced the move to Wattisham, completed in April 1995.
