EW to Blandford

#1
Have recently been told that 14sigs may be moving from Brawdy to Blandford.any truth?
 
#2
The only truth is that you appear to be 10 years behind the rest of the Corps on the rumour chain :D
 
#4
not in the corps myself, looking to join so may well be behind on the rumour mill! EW interests me, all the extra travel that would entail living in Brawdy does not. Just wanted confirmation

Yep, the same rumour that sees 11 Sigs and the RSS moving to St Athans in 2012 is the same rumour that has 14 Sigs moving to Blandford.

Don't expect anything before 2014 though.

No Blandford is moving back to Catterick,8 Sigs will reform, 30 will move to Blandford.7 will move to Herford via a short stint in Krefeld. 1 Div will become 4Arm Div etc again, 13 will come back as will 9, and 15.

You forgot 22 moving back to Lippstadt, 28 reforming in St Tonis, the Armd Bdes reforming, 216 back to the 'shot and 18 being disbanded, not to mention the JHQ scenario.
I know but I had to stop to take my prozac...

oh and that 14 sigs will be reverting back to a troop 640!
14 was never a troop, so can not 'revert'.

13 and 14 (EW) Signal Regiments were sat in Germany awaiting hte 3rd Shock Army, whilst 640 (EW) Sig Tp was part of 30 Sigs in Blandford.

In '93/94, 13 closed down and 30 departed Blandford for Bramcote. 640 went to Hullavington with 237 (EW) Signal Sqn (part of 14) who provided EW for 3 Div (both in BAOR and UK).

13 was also the infamous home of the Germany based 'Detties' which was much harder than the UK based one (which at one time was at 21 Sigs). :D Or so those who took part in the 13 Sigs Detties will have you beleive.

14 was actually formed from two squadrons - 225 at Langie and 226 at Wesendorf.
