Keith, Len, John.
I was in Receivers, 3 G.H.Q. Signal Regiment (M.E.L.F) 1953-1955. We operated AR88s (RCA Victors) for links with Cyprus, Amman, Aqaba, Malta and Benghazi, and Marconis (can't remember what they were called) with London and Singapore, also a 2 hour voice-link with Cyprus.
We could also get Radio Luxembourg strength three on a good night.
The test runs before opening up on Sunday mornings consisted of a full description of one of the previous day's London football matches supplied by a kind oppo in London.

Keith,
Truly grateful for you help and assistance. I'm somewhat staggered at the length of the list. It just shows how big the Corps was during that period in FARELF. Once again thank you.

John,
Try searching the database on this site. Search for units by Country >> Malaya. That should bring up a load. Then follow that by Singapore.
Both those searches should bring up a load.

Hi Keith. Thanks for this information: it's much appreciated. An interesting site but unfortunately the site and hyperlinks are in the process of being rebuild so therefore I'm no further forward.
Regards.

Can anybody recall which R Signals units were located in FARELF Singapore and Malaysia during the period 1950 - 1960? Information details would be appreciated.
