signals call signs and number denominations

#1
Hi all, does anyone have a full signals list of call signs, and denomination numbers ie call sign 83 or call sign Dogfish ect I have a pamplet from the school of infantry but it is not a full list just the basic ones, the call signs are from the period used during the Falklands war, as I am reading through a lot of radio communications that I have obtained from Duxford archive. any help would be greatly appreciated,
bye for now jimmy

Could these have been c/s that were specific to the task force and not used Army wide?

Is this a radio log from a specific unit? They could be normal call signs but with the call sign indicator dropped.

Must admit I'm curious myself. When I was in, it was drilled into us (yes, we were marched to lessons) that security was essential. As I remember there were things like Sunray, Sunray alpha, but giving specific units/sub-units distinct callsigns would have been a NO-NO!! For sure we didn't have things like "83" for a particular "cell". The more ambiguous callsigns were, the better - less for the intercept ops on "THE OTHER SIDE" to latch onto.

Is it all so encrypted now that you could call somebody "Eric" and nobody would bive a sh1t?
Regards

PS. Except for Eric, of course. But does he actually matter?

You need to get hold of a copy of Joint Service Voice Procedure, it had an amusing (at the time) annex with all the gay names the navy use...

What are the dates of the logs? My old man was a company signeller with 3 PARA through 70's could ask him if he knows anything?
