The Royal Corps Of Signals


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The ability to communicate is a prerequisite for success both in military and civil life. Surprisingly, everyone expects access to communications, but rarely wonders how it is achieved. The purpose of this book is to bring into focus one of the cornerstones of the success of the British Army, and to provide an insight into the complexity and diversity of the Royal Corps of Signals. This is done, not by narrative, but by delving into unit history rather than campaign history, thus offering a different perspective for the historian. Royal Signals is one of the largest Corps in the British Army, and consists of a body of very highly trained and dedicated personnel to manage, operate, and repair the advanced technology that is theirs to administer. Signals are the Invisible Elite, without them there is no victory. Before the independent Corps of Signals was formed in 1920, Royal Engineers provided communications for much of the Army. Details of their signal units are included. Reflecting the new technologies as they occur, the reader will see the new signal units being raised to facilitate the exigencies of the time. For example, during the Second World War the Golden Arrow Detachments were created as independent, mobile, high-speed transmitting and receiving stations to provide links to Britain, and thus provide High Command with the information from Commanders in the Field that was desperately needed. These units also passed intercepted enemy signals back to England for the code breakers at Bletchley Park. Other specialist Signal units were created for Air Support, Para Signals, Commandos, Interception, Fixed Communications, Peacekeeping and a multitude of other reasons. In today's changing world signals continue to get their message through - Swift and Sure. This book is a must for historians, genealogists, and those that served. It contains: - Overviews of the Signals Order of Battle at specific times in history- Detailed précis of specialist signal units including Commando, and Para units.- History of 35 Commonwealth and related Signal Corps- Photographs of many rare signal badges- Scores and scores of unit histories both Regular and Territorial from the past to the present

Roger So Far The First 100 Years Of The Royal Signals Corps


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Communications have always been, and are still a vital part of the Army's fighting power. Only with clear and trusted communications can commanders support, control, and lead their units and soldiers. The evolution of electrical communications in the last 150 years has been one of the most important developments humanity has ever witnessed. As the advantages that from ever more complex equipment became apparent the need for a technical arm of the Army, who specialised in communication systems, became apparent. The Royal Corps of Signals was founded in 1920 and since its founding the Corps has been leading the development of communications; delivering them in a variety of operational theatres.

Roger So Far


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Since 1920, the Royal Corps of Signals has provided the British Army’s central nervous system, enabling orders to be delivered and information to be exchanged, principally at the higher levels of command. It has been crucial in supporting the vast majority of military land-based operations after the First World War. Its importance is growing because conducting successful operations is becoming increasingly reliant upon being able to operate in a congested and contested electronic battlespace. ROGER SO FAR does not aim to tell the full story of the Royal Corps of Signals, since much of the Corps’ work now and in the past is secret. Instead the book is a celebration of the Corps’ achievements and the ability of its soldiers to use innovation and improvisation to deliver results beyond all reasonable expectations. As well as acting as an historical record, including reminiscences covering several aspects of life within the Corps during its first 100 years, it seeks to stir memories and to inform those who are serving, or have served in the Corps, as well as to inform those who have not served and those who may be thinking of doing so.

The Invisible War


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

While the Second World War raged in Europe, demanding most of Canada’s military effort, an equally fierce war with Japan was going on in the Far East. Army, navy, and air force signals units in Canada kept watch on the enemy’s vital radio communications. To be more effective, Number One Canadian Special Wireless Group of the Royal Canadian Signals Corps was formed to go to the Southwest Pacific war theatre for close-in radio eavesdropping. Murray describes the often zany career of the only complete signals unit Canada sent to the War in the Pacific, and the significant part it played in the Allied signals intelligence operation known as "Magic."

Getting The Message Through A Branch History Of The U S Army Signal Corps


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Getting the Message Through, the companion volume to Rebecca Robbins Raines' Signal Corps, traces the evolution of the corps from the appointment of the first signal officer on the eve of the Civil War, through its stages of growth and change, to its service in Operation DESERT SHIELD/DESERT STORM. Raines highlights not only the increasingly specialized nature of warfare and the rise of sophisticated communications technology, but also such diverse missions as weather reporting and military aviation. Information dominance in the form of superior communications is considered to be sine qua non to modern warfare. As Raines ably shows, the Signal Corps--once considered by some Army officers to be of little or no military value--and the communications it provides have become integral to all aspects of military operations on modern digitized battlefields. The volume is an invaluable reference source for anyone interested in the institutional history of the branch.
