REME Museum to Exhibit Jim Fox’s ’76 Olympic Vest

You may remember we recently marked the passing of REME and GB Olympic Gold medal winning hero, Jim Fox OBE.

The vest worn by Jim at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games was recently donated to us, by the successful bidder of the charity auction to which Jim generously donated the vest many years ago.

We are proud to announce that the vest is to go on display at the REME Museum and will be officially unveiled on Friday 18 August 2023.

Friends, family and veterans who served with Jim are invited to join us in unveiling the new display in his honour. If you would like to attend, please email

You can find more information on the vest and Jim’s sporting success on here
