Can someone identify these please?
Hello all, I've been given these insignia by my step-grandad. I would love to know what division, unit etc he fought with and where he fought. The things in the top right are dog tags (I think), on which are inscribed:
LT JENKINS, H
Anyway here's the rest of the stuff, any insight/ help would be absolutely BRILLIANT!
i dont know Komrade, but treat them as treasure, and you are now their custodian

I know that the REME were the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, but I don't know anyhting else about them . And also I certainely will treasure them, up on the wall perhaps?
The medals are L-R;
France and Germany Star
The badge is for HQ Eastern Command
The pips are those for REME officers of lieutenant rank.
