Fallen airborne signallers

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. All, i am collating a list of all fallen airborne signallers to date. If anyone has any particularly good links to assist in the search it would be appreciated. Clearly It's imperative I honour the fallen through the accuracy of my results, thanks in advance.
     
  2. You could phone MCM Div? I'd like to think that they know that sort of thing... who knows they may even get teh details right.
     
  3. I take it will be WW2 when formed to date?

    This will give you the 5125 Royal Signals killed in WW2, you will have to search out by sub unit
