It wasn`t a 7 Sigs reunion..It was the Herforder Association,which includes HQ 4 Div, so there may well have been gunners present. tongue

Sorry about that Gordon. Forgot about 4 Div which obviously included an important gunner element. However, as KJH stated that out of the 60 odd people who attended were mostly ex-7 Sig Regt, it shows that a very small minority in attendance were Siggys so the guns of the Artillery were rather muffled to say the least.

Gordon,

I have been looking at the Herforder Association web page and I do not see any reference to Gunners associated with 4 Div but I'm sure they would be welcomed under the heading of 'any other UNITS/CORPS' etc.

This is what that web page says :

The Herforder Association IS for Royal Signals personnel who served at Herford Germany, for example 7 Signal Regiment and 4 Div Signal Regiment, and also includes Royal Engineers, REME, Military police, Royal Logistic Corps, Catering Corps, Army Physical Training Corps, Army Pay Corps, and any other recognised corps or affiliated civilian trades such as NAAFI, WRVS, AKC, MPBW, CINEMA and SSAFA personnel and any other UNITS/CORPS or civilian attachments.

That's right, the RA were never attached to 7th Sigs or 4Div Herford.
