Further to the messages about the parade at the Cenotaph. I did see a Royal Signals contingent march past but, as noted, no mention was made of them and who they were. (Still think we'll make it to our Centenary in 2020 ?)

I would love to hear from anyone who served with me. I was National Service intake 56/21 in November 1956. Went to 7TR for basic and then 1TR before posting to TE troop 19 AGSR at Munchen Gladbach. Troop O/C was Roy Willingale who retired as Lt Col: I believe he lived near Thirsk. Other names I remember: Sgt Lindsay Smith, Staff Goddard, Cpl Catterall, Pete McArdle, George Dunford, Pete Elliot. Please get in touch.

David Gay

David's Funeral was held yesterday at Eltham Crematorium. For someone who spent a lot of time on his own he had a reasonable send off. There were 6 members of his family, 3 members of 71 Signal Regt in uniform, 5 members of The East London Branch of the RSA, two Standard Bearers, around 10 members of the RBL, 2 from Lewisham Hospital and a few others I never managed to speak to.

Hi all 19th Signal Regt Air Formation have their reunion in September. Anyone who wishes to join the fun at the Hilton Hotel, Warwick is most welcome. We have quite a strong number who attend but more members are needed.

While watching the ceremony at the Cenotaph, I observed that there were no views of a RSigs contingent marching past, although there was a man wearing a Jimmy at the very front of the parade, one of the Normandy Veterans. Other than that, what used to be called The Royal Corps was rarely if at all mentioned.
I particularly dislike the disconnect between the voice commentary and the actual picture on the screen. Happens every year, and every year I chunter in my beard!
And finally, when the lists of Queen's Birthday Honours are published, you may notice that although many other Corps and Regiments have their titles printed in full, our dear old Corps is usually reduced to RCS. RCS, not even RSigs, or RCofS, but RCS, ffs!
And breathe!

Watching the BBC coverage at the Cenotaph it struck me that every other corps gets mentioned except the Signals. They even managed to mention lots of charities and non service organisations.
This is not the first time I have noticed it: it seems that as far as the BBC is concerned we don't exist.

Or is it just me? razz (stick out tongue)
