The IEME Crest
The crest of IEME was designed by Major General DR Duguid, the first
DME and remained in vogue from 1943 to 1955. It was in bronzed brass
with fine-pointed `Star of India’ surmounted by a crown and
encircled by a thick wreath of laurels. I.E.M.E. were embossed on
the base of the wreath. The Corps motto `Omnia Facimus’ meaning ‘We
can do everything’ was inscribed.
The badge was designed by Major SE Doig and taken into use from 26
Jan 1955. In 1967 the size of the crest was reduced to two-thirds of
the original size. The badge is bi-metallic with the horse, chain
and globe in white metal and the rest in gilt. The horse chained to
the globe symbolises harnessed mechanical power with the lightning
flashes depicting electrical energy. The globe is indicative of the
impact of engineering on the world.
