Before joining as a Regular I had been in the Army Cadets (Hampshire Regt - Royal Hampshire Regt - Parachute Regt ACF) for four years, where three stripes and a crown was a Staff Sgt .. first run in after joining the Signals (never, never, never, the Sigs) was after 3 days I got a tape, local, acting, unpaid and unwashed lance corporal .... I was paraded at the Sqn Office to get my 'promotion' when along comes this guy with 3 hooks and a crown. What's you name lad .. Payne, Staff .. I'm not a bloody Staff I'm the Foreman of Signals, .. Sorry Sir .. I'm not a Sir, I'm Foreman (Christ I had never been in a Union before) .. see another guy with 3 hooks and a crown .. I'm ready for him .. excuse me Foreman .. I'm not the Foreman, I'm the SQMS, call me 'Q' .. I'm ready to go home .. when I see another guy with 3 hooks and a crown .. Are you Payne, he asked, without thinking 'Yes Staff. .. not a whimper from him, he was a bloody Staff, he was the Chief Clerk ..
The mysteries of the Royal Signals hierarchy were slowly unfolding to me.

Oh yes I nearly forgot .. never call the Squadron Sergeant Major mate, seems to piss them off.

I've noticed a couple of times, on these meandering threads, that people get quite vitriolic over the title "Sigs".

Regiments all endured abbreviation to help keep things brief didn't they ?

You couldn't call Royal Anglian "RA", for example, because somebody else already had that one, so they were titled "R.ANGLIAN", for example. "RS" could be Royal Signals but there again it could be Royal Scots. so I always saw them written as R.Sigs.

None of our resident Scaleys (don't remember them being called that by the way) took umbrage at being called "R.Sigs" so why is it so unmentionable nowadays ?

I'm only posting this so I can become a three star general (as a yank squaddie once said when he saw our Brigadier).

Was doing my clearance at Wilders and went into another troops office to get my chit signed. Where are you posted to Teabag the captain said? 8 Sigs on a conversion course sir says I. It's not 8 sigs it's Eighth Signal Regiment he said in no uncertain manner. Never said it again so it must have stuck!

Yahoo I'm a three star general.

In 1952 I was posted to 4 Squadron, 6 Armoured Division, York Barracks, Munster .. but it was more Rambo to call it 20 Armoured Brigade Signal Squadron, that is until I had to visit Div HQ in Bunde .. 'What's your name corporal, what squadron are you in' RSM Jimmy Derwent barked .. Oh Calamity .. I made the boo boo of saying 20 Bde Signal Sqn sir .. Christ I thought he was going to bust a gut ... if he could have given me a 100 lines he would have .. never forgot after that I was in 4 Squadron ..
