It's that time of year again!

Folks.

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.

Mike

Hi Keith. Yes I remember the Train at the side of RHQ 21 Signal Regiment in RAF Wildenrath. I used to work in the ops room next to the Adjutant in RHQ. I was then promoted and sent to 233 Sig Sqn in NI for 6 Months unaccompanied - a typical Royal Signals trick! How are things in Crete? PI will be glad when all this is over and we can travel again: like everyone else I am missing so much. Take care, all the best. Jim.

Hi. I was just wondering if anybody remembers the railway/bar carriage that was located at 21 Sigs, Wildenrath in the mid 70s. If my memory serves me well (which is not always the case nowadays) it was down by the Headquarters!!We used to enjoy a drink in there, especially after Regimental games with the guys, Reynolds brothers, Kenny Walker, Mick Egan, Big Mac Mackerrick (bad spelling) to name but a few.
Stay safe everyone.

I meant to say Squadron football team, 1 Sqn, not Regimental. I think we called our team Lindhooper Rovers. I also worked in the gym under QMSI Steve Seth.

Hi all. I have just joined in the hope of catching up with old colleagues. I joined in 1986 at Penny Pot then posted out to 1 Div, Verden in January 1988. I served there for all my service, including Op Granby, then left in May 1991. I played for the regiment football team plus a local German team alongside Geoff Jones and Yorker Whatley

Andrew (Paddy) Bogle
I came across your site and would like to remember my father who served 1939 to 1949 when he was invalided out of the Corps having received serious injuries to both hands and feet whilst on exercise near Hohne, Germany. He died in 1965 of a heart attack.
He was born in Strabane Ireland 1919 and was stationed in Catterick, W Germany (Hohne), Eritrea, France mostly during WWII. He was an operator wireless and line.
I followed his footsteps with 9 years in the Corps 1962-1971 23878910 Cpl Bogle, Comcen and Cipher. Served in Germany (Gutersloh, Dusseldorf) Aden, Bulford, UN Cyprus, British Honduras and then W Germany.
I doubt if there are people who would still be with us that would remember him such as Sergt Paddy Milligan from Dublin.
He was always very proud of serving in the Corps and had a circle of ex members who also served living in West Belfast.
Take care of yourselves
Michael

I served as a teleprinter operator in Comcan Signals Regiment stationed at RAF Eastleigh in Nairobi, Kenya from January 1955 till March 1956 (National Service). Anyone still about from then who served there at the same time?

Dave Longhurst (former 22 SAS) was my troop Sgt and then Ssgt at 244 Signal Squadron when I was there from 1974-1977. I met him when he was a Captain at a posting in Gutersloh. I know he finished his time as a QM (Major or Lt Col). He is a southerner hailing from Kent. Does anybody know his contact email please?
