Army Comms in the past

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by polar, Aug 23, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've a copy of 'The Royal Corps of Signals' by Cliff Lord and Graham Watson..

    but are their any other books on the corps/sigs history worth recommending.
  2. How disappointing - when I saw the title of the thread, I thought it was a topical discussion about technical obsolescence.... :D
  3. Tin cans and string ?
  4. Well don't post geeky threads then instead of apologising. You've obviously been very bored of late as this isn't the only one!
  5. but you replied . :p :p

    At least I didn't mention laying cable well below ground (to protect it from shell fire) vrs laying it above ground (for speed) and the risks that entails...
  6. D11 C11 C42 C50 C70 A41

    Definitely army comms of the past. My past anyway. :D
  7. D11, ahh, the valves, the smell, the heat and the time it took to warm up. "sorry Sir, not warmed up yet, fancy a brew?"
  8. Try 'Picking Up The Brass'.
    It's brilliant and, to my mind, the most accurate depiction of the Corps as it was 20 years ago.
  9. Doh! You got me!!!
