Norman, if you search the database with location "Margival" or units with 227 Sig Sqn, there are a few people registered that might still be around.
Jim, likewise if you search for location "Celle" there are quite a few entries and I would assume that the unit was 639 Sig Troop

I served in the Royal Signals in Margival, France, from July 1959 until late December 1960. (National Service). I'm trying to get in touch with anyone who was there between these dates. Please contact me.

Norman.
If you want people to contact you then you should register as a site member and enter all your postings. That way people can find you or you can look up people to see if there are any you know.
Mind you, that only works if people keep their contact details (email address) up to date!
Mike

Just spoken to an ex RA friend who tells me it was 94 Locating Regt RA but 14 Sigs in Celle. I'm looking for any information about Signalman James (Jim) Taylor who was killed in a vehicle accident in Kingsley Barracks, Minden, in 1969, but was in Celle before he was posted to Minden.

Re message 3740
The Royal Signals Magazines called "The Wire" are available on line back to 1920, however it was not published during the War Years, but there is a picture of Sig Suttle in the issue for Sept 1956 under the 18 Army Group Sig Regt entry on page 294. The downloads for each year of magazines can be found at [www.royalsignalsmuseum.co.uk]

Morning, I trust everyone is safe and well.
I am currently doing research for my 95 year old grandfather, who will be 96 in August.
Ronald served in the army having joined in the spring of 1943 - he would have been demobbed in the summer of 1947- but he signed on again in 1956- 9 and there is a record him still in during 1962-65. He served with the Royal Signals. During his time he received a Mention In Dispatches in November 1945. I have found a clipping of this from the London Gazette, which only gives you his name, number and date. I was wondering if there is anyway to find more details on this.
He was also issued a letter from the King for a particular reason, but as he is getting on he is losing some of his memory, which is to be expected. He calls himself a silly old fool. This letter used to be framed in the house but they can no longer remember where this has gone. I am wondering if there is any way of getting details for this.
I was going to register for Forces War Records subscription, but after reading reviews on here and other sites I'm saving my money. I currently have an Ancestry Sub and also a My Heritage sub, I must admit the My Heritage is not that good.
I know I can go through the MOD as he is still alive, but that seems like a long process and with the current situation, will probably be even longer. So, I have turned to the delightful people on this site who may maybe able to help.
His details are: L/Cpl Ronald K Suttle (Ron)

I really hope someone can help as I've pretty much exhausted all routes so far.
I have my Grandfather's consent to ask this.
Regards

I feel your best route would be through the official UK Government route:
[www.gov.uk]
The only way this site could be of help is if someone knew your grandfather personally.
