When I was posted to 1 ADOC (Soltau) we shared Bournemouth barracks with the scaleys. Initially the sig squadron was known as TFA (Task force alpha) it then became 207 Sig Sqn. In fact the correct title was, 7th Armoured Brigade, HQ & Sig Sqn. This was from Jan 1980 to Jan 1983. Of course, Bournemouth Barracks like so many barracks no longer exists.

Some loved BAOR and some hated it, me I just hated serving in the UK.
I find the funny thing is that I had two postings to 4 Div in Herford which everyone seemed to think was a "punishment".  I loved it there, mind you most guy's couldn't stand the SSM but I thought he was great, I always knew where I stood. There were times when I thought that one tape meant C**t and wasn't quite sure how deep the shite was but I always knew where I stood !.   Second time though I had a nondescript SSM who impressed me so much I can't recall his name, I daresay the feeling was mutual as I never hid my opinions.  I have only been back once but I am considering another trip soon while there is still a unit left to visit.

my first posting was with the 12th l.a.a.ra to celle which I didn't know much about as I was only there one week when the regt moved to harwood bks herford jan 56 and I can say it was agreat place,the herford people were great,and the local bars welcomed us and there was no trouble,in 57 an American fighter jet crash landed just on the outskirts of herford,the pilot was killed,i was told by our r.s.m to get 15 men and go with a American sgt and put a corden around the aircraft,i found out later the people of herford awarded the pilots family,with some order for flying the plane from the town centre,,that was the sort of place herford was in the 50s

PostSubject: Royal Corps of Signals in BAOR   7/11/2015, 00:11

Published in 2012, Amazon says the book is out of stock,   but this could be a handy source of clarification for, and  records of which unit was where and when

http://www.worldcat.org/title/royal-corps-of-signals-unit-histories-of-the-corps-1920-2001-and-its-antecedents/oclc/184820114/viewport

"Synopsis - The purpose of this book is to bring into focus one of the cornerstones of the success of the British Army, and to provide an insight into the complexity and diversity of the Royal Corps of Signals. This is done, not by narrative, but by delving into unit history rather than campaign history, thus offering a different perspective for the historian.  
Before the independent Corps of Signals was formed in 1920, Royal Engineers provided communications for much of the Army. Details of their signal units are included.  
Other specialist Signal units were created for Air Support, Para Signals, Commandos, Interception, Fixed Communications, Peace-keeping and a multitude of other reasons."

eg
217 Signal Squadron was formed in 1950 from 5 AGRA Signals    at Hubblerath  Düsseldorf.

With respect despite being a very useful resource, I have the hardback version published in 2003 but have found the book has many BAOR errors, a supplementary book with updates has been produced and both are available through eBay sellers

The 200 series Signal Squadrons did not happen until Sep 59, prior to this depended on the higher formation they served under, all formations were known as Signals until Jun 46, then troop/squadron/regiment thereafter

Feb 51 – HQ 5th Army Group Royal Artillery (Anti-Aircraft) from UK – HQ Delmenhorst to Crerar Barracks Oldenburg

Royal Signals in BAOR and Germany.

Are there any UK Army Royal Signal units still in Germany at this time (2015)?

20th Armoured Brigade Headquarters and Signal Squadron (200) based in Paderborn appears to be the last unit but HQ British Forces Germany in Bielefeld will probably have some Royal Signals personnel located with them
