Hi John,

Oh that is amazing, he will be so happy to see these photos and hear of you both.

My grandad was a radio operator, is that what you mean by trade? I know he was assigned a guide called Meshak Kiptoo son of Bergen. I'm hoping he's in one of the images you have taken so I can show my grandad.

Hi Heather,
I took that photo and I did know John. My friend knows him as well but because it has been so long ago we could not place the name.
Can you tell me what his trade was in the Royal Signals?

Hello John,

It is lovely to meet you and to hear that you served at the same camp as my grandad.

I have just looked through the photos and my grandad is in the 19th photo stood next to a man in shorts. I can’t believe there’s a picture of him, he will be so thrilled.

Yes please let me know if your friend knows my grandad and if there are any other photos or information.

Thank you so much for all your help :)

Hi Heather,
I was at Buller Camp, Nairobi from December 1955 -1957. There are lots of photos taken at Buller Camp on this site under East Africa Command Signal Squadron. By the way I cannot place the name John Berry but I will ask a friend of mine who was also at Buller.

Hello,

Further to my last comment, I have found that my Grandad (John Berry, 88 years old) was at Buller Camp in Nairobi, Kenya from 1955/56.

Does anyone have any photos, information or served during this time?

Thanks, Heather.

Hello,

My grandad was a Royal Signalman and started his basic training in Catterick in 1954 before being deployed to Kenya in 1955/56. His name was John Berry. I am just wondering if anyone has any information on what regiment he was with or if they served with him?

My grandad is now 88, is one of the best men I know and I'm proud to not only call him my grandad but also share his birthday with him (06/07/1933). He has sadly started to lose his memory recently however, he still remembers a lot about his time in the Royal Signals and I thought it would be a fab Christmas present for him and the whole family if I could give him as much information as possible/ any pictures of his time serving so he can remember how much he has achieved. It would also be amazing to reunite him with any of his fellow service men and share stories.

Please let me know if anyone has any information as it would be greatly appreciated.

Have 11 Sigs got a picture library of all the troops passing out parades. The Wire has nothing.

There are not normally pictures of pass off parades in the Wire, but they do usually show pictures of the best recruit from each troop. The full Wire archive can be found at [www.royalsignalsmuseum.co.uk] There is a pdf file for each year
