Just looking at a piece of WW2 archive footage and some PRONTO types are erecting aerials.
Their shoulder titles say "Royal Corps of Signals".
Bit long - winded, I thought.

Yes Gordon, that's the one. I should have been more accurate. I was going on memory rather than Wiki. I think in addition to his write up, he played rugby union for the Army and England and was also one time Governor of Western Australia 1963-74.

Brum,

'Gooners' isn't that a supporter of Arsenal Football Club. A play on 'Gunners' (according to Wiki), but never heard it applied to Royal Signals.

Depends on your memory what ! I can remember events during the 1940's/1950's etc, can even remember meeting my Dad coming home from his barracks in 1938. But blow me down if I can remember what happened perhaps 2/3 weeks ago.

What's with the  R Signals Avatar badge you have. Never saw those in my service. Perhaps they were only for 'General Staff' members.
This was the General Staff badge I remember :
