Dates of creation and disbandment of REME battalions in Army 2020

The request was successful.

Dear British Army,

I am looking for the official dates of formation/creation and reduction/disbandment of the three battalions for the REME in the Army Reserve that were created under Army 2020, but were reduced into the existing three REME battalion later under Army 2020 Refine.

To be specific: under the Army 2020 plans, 104, 105 and 106 Battalions REME were scheduled to be formed. Under Army 2020 Refine these battalions were merged into 103, 101 and 102 Battalions REME respectively. From official sources I found so far, I could not establish any official date of formation and reduction.

Any details will be kindly appreciated, and will be of great help for my studies in the history and lineages of units of the reserve forces of the British Army.

Yours faithfully,

Wienand Drenth
