28 Signal Regiment ... 1964

SNLR86

Old-Salt
Anybody out there who served at this unit and yet to drop me a line?

Would love to hear from you, particularly if you were at Francisca Barracks in Forstwald, which I believe was commonly called St Tonis...

Am trying to trace one of your oppos, Taff Kelly, aka Cpl. Brian James Kelly -- even if you can't bring me up to date, any memories at all of him would be fabulous.

This is a continuing search on behalf of my other half, who is finally starting to realise -- bless 'er! -- that my having been in the Corps during the 80s doesn't really give me a head start on finding somebody who had served two decades earlier...

So, anyone there from 28SR -- or any other unit -- recall Taff Kelly?
 
Hi - I served in 28 Sigs between late 1964 to late 1967. However the name Kelly does not ring a bell. Too many years have gone by to remember everyone who served in that illustrious place - Fransisca Barracks. It was a right dump.

Good luck on your search.

Yep, shared a room with him for a couple of years at JHQ 2Sqn 28th, working in the 'Big House'
we all ended up in St Toenis doing mobile comms.
We were both in trade training together at Lincoln, he very quickly became a Cpl.
He loved beer and was a good rugby player for the Regt.
On demob, he became a lighthouse keeper and died at the age of 72.
