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.

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?? I 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?
