signals museum at Blandford

#4
The Corp Museum serves several functions including provision of special rankslides for Corps members, selling cack field gear to trainees, selling muffins as moist as Fanny's to those on courses and ingraining the Corps quick march deep into the brain of all those who spend longer than 5 minutes in there.

If you like looking at old radios, you will like the museum. If you don't, join the Signals and get in for free.

"At the Royal Signals Museum we see how military communications progressed from the use of torches and sunlight, through flags, the Semaphore and the Shutter Telegraph, to Morse Code, the telephone and the wireless.
Then came the quantum leap of genius which led to the invention of the computer."
The world of the Scaleys will blow your mind with it's awesomeness.

Or you might just die a little bit inside yourself after seeing it.

Just heard that there is a signals museum at Blandford. has anyone been recently and what are the best exhibits, have they got quality stuff?
Almost every day in passing and yes just by passing I end up humming the Corps march all day long!

Save your money. Imagine a big hall with a lot of old phones and radios in. It really isn't even as good as it sounds.

The cafe's alright and there used to be a filthy looking MILFy red head with massive cans working in there but frankly they could have Jennifer Ellison and Rhianna lezzing off in Montgomery's caravan and it wouldn't make the museum worth going to.

Think there's a mills bomb in there some where that I found in 1986 with a metal detector it came up in the middle of a foot path at the back of the old accm blocks. Called out the guard, who called out EOD bloke turns up has a look. sucks his teeth and tuts a bit and says "its a training grenade lads" still gave him something to do other than drinking tea.

I spent 4 years there. One year on my T1 followed by a posting to the School as an instructor. 11 years later, the Corps March is still the ringtone on my phone!

Available here if anyone else wants it!
Damn you roadster for making me listen to that and putting it back in my head, I'll be whistling it all night now - curses!

That made my day UKTAP. You missed the coffee with hidden tea bags in them!!!

There is a bit where you can hear the engineering of a Triffid RR link, whilst gazing at the legend that is Bruin.

Also there's a super space age soldier, dolled up in 'Yeoman'. A bit like the 'here's what you could have won' part of Bullseye. Yeoman was the suggestion for Bowman, before the consortium fielding Yeoman wrapped.

All in all, a very good experience and I recommend it to all who may be in the Dorset area.

Don't see the facination with Rhianna meself...

And isn't Jenifer a scouser?

A pairing of Emma Watson and Charleze Theron v Katerine Heigl and the bird who plays Eliot Reed on scrubs on the other hand.

May the best pair win!
