I've just come upon this site. I'm wondering how many old pals are still around from Singapore days, 1951-52, as I am getting on a bit now. We were mostly N/S at Calcutta Camp, Pasir Panjang, S'Pore Dist Sig Regt, and were first unit to occupy the new Princess Mary Bks in Nov 1952. I was on teleprinter duty at Fort Canning. We went out on the Dunera and home on the Dilwara. I don't think we appreciated our Singapore posting at the time. Memory jogs: A Lt/Col tragically shot dead in camp, and the squaddie who had a pet monkey. Those with longer memory may recall I was the one with a trumpet. All the best - Brian Phillips

PAST HISTORY PHOTOGRAPHS
I’ve been watching with interest the number of group photographs appearing, which is good to see. However I would be keen to view pictures from our Corps Senior Veterans who served in the following units: 5 AGRA (AA) SIG SQN BAOR during the period 1951 -1955, and 259 SIG SQN (COMCAN) CYPRUS, period 1962 – 1963. If there’s anybody out there, your assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Len. I will pass your comments onto Phil. I wish I got these photos up years ago as he is 93 and it is a long way to remember back - especially names. Luckily he had put some names by photos. Cheers

Link works fine. A very interesting group of photos and an insight into service overseas. I just wish I had kept a camera handy.

Hi. I have uploaded a video on Youtube with photos and stories from my father in law. He served from 1942 to 1947 and spent about 18 months in Ceylon and six weeks at Sialkot, Pakistan and he had his Box Brownie camera with him. If the link does not work, look for "Royal Signals 1942 to 47 Philip Brooks. He had a few names attached to some photos.
