Thanks for this john boy.

I eagerly scanned the div/formation signs to see if the "swan" was there, but it ain't.

Looks like Gordon was right and it's a sign from a Signals regt.

Strange that it's on a gunner vehicle though. scratch

Signals Squadron Brum

I`ve been through dozens of sites and books looking for your swan,but have been unable to find it.The info was obtained from an ex squaddie who was trying to find out the connection between the swan and his squadron..

The white swan is definately 30 Signal Regiment

Badgies ?

Artillery ex-boys are called "Badgies".

Stinking Badgies ?

That's a bit strong, old chap.

You and me, behind the gunsheds, two feet of wet four by two at twenty paces !
