RIP
Lt Col Colin Eastland.

A forthcoming Memorial and Celebration of Col Eastland's remarkable life is on 22nd October 2021. The event is at Harrow School (Old Harrovian Room, 5pm - 9pm), where Colin was a Bursar before his well-earned retirement.

The Muster

Do you hear the Long Reveille echoing across the halls of time,
calling ghostly squadrons back into the line,
from Sebastopol to Delhi, Corunna and Verdun,
the armies are assembling, under the setting sun.

A squadron of Hussars decked out in fancy dress,
caught the eye of a Pikeman from the time of Good Queen Bess,
a soldier from the Boer War in khaki dress so drear,
was looked upon in wonderment by a dashing Cavalier.

If all the sons of England who have served their native land,
were gathered each together, they'd outnumber desert sand,
so should you think to treat an old Soldier with your scorn,
Remember it was for folks like you, that the Uniform was worn.


To the Volunteers.

Len Payne.

Thank you for allowing me to join your group. My father served with the Royal Signals in the UK and India and Ceylon from 1941 to 1946. I have some group photographs taken during training at Foremark which may be of interest to members.

John. If you’d like to send copies of the photos to the link at the bottom of the page I will add them to the photo album.

21 Signal Regt (AS), 1984
Can anyone from the Hele Support Sqn up in Osnabrück in 1984 remember a Royal Australian Signals Sgt who was with us for a few weeks in summer/autumn of that year.? He was probably on Exercise Long Look, which was the annual soldiers exchanged exercise between Australia and the UK from August to December.
I am trying to get in contact with him. I had heard from an Australian friend of mine that a Dave Brogden might be the person I was looking for and the name started ringing bells in my longterm brain area.
On contacting the Australian Signals Association late one afternoon to ask if they could help me with a contact address for Dave, I was surprised to find an email from him in my inbox the next morning (thats what I call quick!). He was FoS in 4 ADSR in Herford in 1988 when I was there - hence the 'bells' - but not the Aussie I was looking for.
That said, it is always good to hear from 'old' friends wherever they may be on this planet and we are exchanging mails now.
Still no success though with my 1984 Aussie.
CAN ANYONE HELP?

"I am coming up to the anniversary of a 'Posting of a Lifetime'. It is somewhere where those of us lucky enough to get it never thought they would, because most of us thought we were doomed to the BAOR/UK/NI round of postings."
