G'day all,
I'm not ex or current Signals but am restoring a FFW/FFR Austin Champ (with Larkspur C42/B47 radio, A41 Manpack with rebroadcast facility, and J Set landline). I'm a member of the Owner's Club which maintains a register of all known Champs worldwide. This is made more difficult as the Army destroyed nearly all the records when they sold them off, and records from BAOR do not exist.
Any assistance with locations, memories, and especially photos (very helpful if they show the Army Reg Number) would be very gratefully received.
Many thanks Mike for allowing this postsmile

Just seen the photo of Course TE14U1 at 8 Sigs. I assume that Mike Graham in the picture is the same one who now runs this site? My question is, do you know the present whereabouts of John Arbury (J.A.)? I was at 4 Gds Bde at the same time as John.

It is the same Mike Graham, Don.
I'm afraid I don't know where JA is, and he's not registered as a member of the site so can't help you.
Mike

For Phil Rich.
I'm keeping well. I've met a few folk from Kitchen Hill. I live in Cyprus now. Been here 10 years - living the dream, ha ha.

I am looking for ex Harrogate 1961A intake TG Op Malcolm (Chubby) Carter. He has been absent from reunion parades. Last heard of in Aden, possible grenade attack.
Any details much appreciated.

I served under Frank Aiken at Blandford, 30 Sig Regt Trials Sqn and then when it moved across to the School of Signals when they came down to Blandford about 1967-1968.
Frank was an all round nice guy and was one of three FoS in Trials Sqn, the others were Dickie Dyer and Ted Wise. With Frank a roly-poly 5 foot plus and Dickie and Ted both 18 stone 6 foot plus they made an interesting trio. I think Frank retired to Winterborne Whitchurch.

Ref. below post.
You can obtain your father’s service records from the MOD historical records dept. at Glasgow. Their phone number is on the internet. If you phone them they will send you the application forms. It costs £30.

A long shot but my dad was in the Signals from 1947 to 1963. His name was Charles Dunn and he was a Sergeant-Major. I can't find out much about him and would be grateful for any info. He was in another regiment before the Signals during the war but I don't know which one. He was born in 1919 and was in the army for most of his life, but had only been out for a couple of years before he committed suicide when I was only 9. Thanks for any help. Jane
