Talking about the name 'Digger', anyone serving at 7 Signal Regt might remember 'Digger'. I do and he liked beer & kitkat chocolate

Gordon,

Talking about Warrant Officers, Eddie Holness was in my opinion one of the best. The other Warrant Officer in 7 Sigs was Tom Joyce in 1 Sqn - both great guys.

Tom Joyce made RSM and then he emigrated down under. Don't know any other details but is is one of the best SSM's I have ever had. The other two were Jock Fisher of 206 Sig Sqn Munster ( later met him in Singapore) & Eric Webster of 249 Sig sqn Singapore. He finished as a Major (QM) and we meet every year at the Harrogate Association Reunion.
