why an RSM in a squadron?
I asked my grandson (signals).the same question.Apparently it has ,as Teabag says, something to do with being part of a HQ..I also noticed recently that R. Signals now have a Corps RSM.What`s that all about and when did it start?

Independent Signal Sqns had WOII SSMs. I believe the reason for a WOI RSM at a Brigade Signal Sqn was just that. He was the senior Other Rank in both the HQ and the Signal Sqn, which I suppose was considered to be of Regiment-ish size, although some Ind Sqns could be fairly large.

Yes, I noticed that there was now a Corps RSM at Blandford. Must have brought that in because there are a whole lot fewer RSM posts nowadays.

Ah, but he wasn't, all Bde HQ's had Conductors as the Super Clerk.

Well in my day anyway.

and Teabag, LOL

"Stores are for storing, if they were for issuing they'd be called Issues." That's what I was told by a WO111 in the stores. And yes, he claimed he was a WO111, he was from some obscure lancer Regiment.

Ah yes. Good point, although the RSM was boss of the Mess. I believe that Conductors had the choice of whether to be Mess members or not.

Maybe I should have said the guy in charge of ORs discipline.
