It's that time of year again!


It's the time of year when I have to pay for the hosting of this site. My time, which is now my own, is given for free, as are my technical abilities - such as they are!

But I do have to pay for hosting.

Many sincere thanks to all those who have kindly made donations throughout the year. No matter how large or small they are very much appreciated and I hope I replied to thank each donor personally.

However I have to say that, in spite of a request to do so when someone registers as a member of the site for the first time, very few people actually do make a donation. It is usually the faithful few regulars who help keep the site going for all of us to use.

So if you think the site is worth keeping going in this day and age of "social media" such as individual Faceache groups etc. then please click on the donate button in the menu bar.

Thanks and may I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and especially a Safe New Year.

To all Corps members wherever you might be.
Keep the comms open, our families need them more than ever right now at the end of this difficult year. A very big thanks to all serving members who will have to help with the covid bug and vaccination over the Christmas period. I hope you get the recognition you all deserve when this thing is back to normal.
And a very big thanks to Mike Graham for keeping this site up and running!
To anyone who knows me: yes I am still alive and kicking. Maybe next year I will hear from someone else I haven't heard from in 50 years or so.
Make the best of the festive season you can in these times and spare a thought - and perhaps a bit more - for all those who are not as well off as yourself.

The new book “ROGER so far” lists a Cpl Pete Dobson as a contributor. I would like to make contact with anyone who may have info as to his whereabouts. He was in Fayid in 1954-1955 in 3GHQ Signal Regiment, an ex-boy soldier, and I nearly shot him at one time.

Here’s another blast from the past!!!
Remember Muktas shop come cafe on the Airport Camp at 644 Signal Troop, UNFICYP? It used to have the pinball machines where you could build up credits in exchange for soup (oxtail) and a roll!
I bought my Omega watch there:10 Cyprus pounds deposit and 10 a month!! I still have it, it keeps perfect time and it’s worth about 15 times what I paid for it.
I always remember that’s where I heard the American song The Ballad of Green Beret.
It’s funny how things stick in your mind - I can’t stand the song now!
Stay Safe everyone - soon be over
Keith (Frenchie) French
P.S will think of some more soon!!

Well folks it's that time again. I know it will not be like we've had in the past but iI would still like to wish you all the best for Christmas and the New Year. Don't forget if you are reading this you are still above ground so that's a bonus. So take care and stay safe for your families. So good night to all and to all a good night. John

I remember the train at 21 Sigs, I actually ran the bar there for a month circa 1977. A junior NCO was selected "randomly" to run the bar each month. Any profits on cordials, coke etc was yours, all else went to the Regiment. We had some good times in the Train usually after Regimental Football Matches. Good memories, Pete Reynolds, Chris Sinnot, Pete Amphlet (RAPC), Ian Emmerson,Billy Watts, Allan Mann et al.

It is with sadness I have to announce the passing of Sgt Robert (Bob) Bellwood. Bob was a fellow instructor at 11 Signal Regt in the mid to late 70s.
His funeral will be held at 14.30 hrs on Friday 20th November 2020 at Preston Crematorium. Anyone wishing to attend please be aware that due to Covid restrictions only 15 people are allowed in the chapel. His family has requested a Guard of Honour but understand if people cannot make it.
