Royal Signals Assoc.

#1
Just a thought being quite new here, how many are members of Royal Signals Assoc. I have been a member for some time and I think they are always on the look out for new members.


Taken from their site.

'If you participated in the Days Pay Scheme while serving Life membership is free!

For those who did not participate a 'one off' contribution to the Royal Signals Benevolent Fund of £10 is all it costs for Life Membership.

Each member will receive a RSA Life Membership Card, Serial Number and RSA enameled lapel badge.'

This is my first post on this sub section so I'd also like to say hello to all.

Ex 7 Sigs after short tour at Krefeld, replaced by a computer there. Couple of short tours to SHAPE to work in Comcen there. Early to mid 1970s service. Cheers.

RSA enameled lapel badge.'
Pray, can this be worn alongside my Cold War and Battle of Sennelager Naafi Medals?

Of course you can if you've purchased such walty bling. However I find it looks better alongside my veteran's badge at the RSA weekend.

Good ol' Chodders, I'd dearly love to be a Member but all my spare time is spent in my
'Garden Emporium' practising my C70 Path Profiles, one must be ready, you know, Ivan
is regrouping and now there isn't even a Wall to stop 'em.

4 Armd Div is already secretly reforming, we're located, at the moment, under the
rolling Wiltshire Countryside..........and we have all been issued with the 'Long Gun'
and 10 Man Rat Packs.......fcuk off, I've got all the Compo Sausages!

We need C50/C70 Techy types, you up for it?

I'll tell one of the guys here at work - He's Ex Sigs, about 79-88, mostly in Germany. I know he peeks on here now and again, but hasn't joined yet.

I was up to speed on C50 and C70.

What's it got to do with the RSA though?
 
#7
Nothin' been a Member for yonks but it is Sunday, hers at work and I'm bored!

We are not recruiting Techs who look like Red Dwarf Moggies, you'll frighten
Ivan off and reduce our chances of blatting the Sub-Humans with 7.62mm Disprins.

Shame. I've not got the Sennelager gong, although I spent enough time on the area on Harrier excercises.

I've got a couple of bars on my Pop's and Eddie's gong though.

Top man, were you with Harriers when TJ was the SSM?

If you mean the TJ that I think you mean, he was SSM of 1 (REMF) Sqn. ;-)

I was there 82-86.

Edit.

Yep, 21.

'Fraid not, I was a lever bender and couldn't get my head around valve theory let alone transistors. If however you can get your hands on an old BRUIN Auto 40 or Auto 20 I'm your man...lol

Had an Auto 40 and a 64 on flick, as well as a 6Channel.

RR techs. Multitaskable :)

Time line is right, he came to 22 Sigs as my Badge. I was at 21 Sigs mid 1983 till early 1985 but with ACPO at Rhine D. I too qualified for a REMF medal...lol

I did a little bit of work in JHQ on the trials for the BFBS link to UK. The Starrnet tower building that I did the trial in was my Sqn Office when I went back to RheinD for my 3rd tour at 16.

I did a stint on Clansman Trials in Trials Sqn, 75 ish, I remember a certain Lancejack

S.L. burning a C50 Box body out, it was parked right out side the Trials Lab, oh, how

we laffed whilst running hither and thither carrying 353, 320, 321 to safety and

screaming away in the ICS L/R......nobody gave a shit about the C50!!!

I was stuck down in a cellar amongst the RAF types. Fair do's I suppose as we were responsible for writing the projects that ran their airfield communications. God they spent millions of pounds when Tornado came into service and that was just on communication systems.

An object lesson on how to derail a thread! Mind you, as a member of the RSA myself, I think it has taken an interesting turn for the better (no disrespect to the OP). :)

Bloody hell theres scalies everywhere! probably make up a fair percentage of arsers, we could have a corps coup, but would probably bollox it up although we would have nice shiny waggons .

Quite right Slipperman, but back on thread - I suspect that the RSA 2012 weekend will not be so well supported as usual. Accommodation blocks, normally used to house many of those attending, have been condemned and will demolished and not replaced. More space is being made available for caravans and tents but I suspect a lot of the really older members won't be up for that and in consequence won't bother.

Since the Corps moved down south I have always got the impression that the Regular Corps see the RSA weekend as something to be 'put up with' rather than 'a celebration of family'.

I'm willing to be put back in my box by serving members if that is not the case.
