Im a trooper in ipswich sigs. i joined in colchester and moved up here with the sigs.
i think the best thing for you to do is go on a week night to both chat to the people see what trades are on offer and the best bit go to the bar after and chat to people. make sure you talk to the lowest to the highest both will talk to you and tell you the good and bad bits.
i dont know about logs but the sigs at ipswich are going through alot of changes its the best time to get there. new kits coming in tours are up to go on.
i may be wrong but logs at ipswich are huge theres a lot of them it may be a good thing or not. sigs are smaller everyone knows everyone we hang out together.
the choice i yours but the best bit is you can go wed nights for one and i think the next night for the other.
Ipswich's sigs troop are a top bunch... small numbers (as you'd expect) but always good % turnout and performance on exercises.
New (and good) kit is on the way and with Southend joining, 45 Sig Sqn as a whole are in excellent shape. There may also be some ties developing with 16AA.
A couple of them are quite handy in the bar too
Get down there on a Wed night and see what they're about - the rest would be up to you from there. They're no strangers to handling casual enquiries and would be happy to talk you through everything without any pressure.
Sigs are a good call (but then I would say that). The Ipswich mob may be small in numbers but unlike 95% of the rest of the TA (including the loggies) who have a general reinforcing role they have an operational one right now to provide communications for UK Operations.
The Ipswich mob, along with the rest of their unit did an actual operation last year, and have guys at a days notice to deploy. The links with 16 Air Assualt Brigade's Signal Sqn look really exciting with lots of opportunities there, for the future.
