Picturing 100 – Today’s Soldier is Tomorrow’s Veteran

Picturing 100 is a celebration of 100 years of Royal Corps of Signals.

The project, supported by a grant from Armed Forces Covenant Fund, and in collaboration with Kirkby Museums and Galleries, and Knowsley Council brings together the Corps family, with currently serving soldiers, veterans and their families sharing artwork, verse and memories of their service.

In this time of isolation for so many we thought it vitally important to reflect on some of the facets of Service life.

Thanks to all the veterans and their families who made this possible. Certa Cito
