Looking back at the Corp centenary

A centenary service took place at Salisbury Cathedral and was attended by our Colonel in Chief Her Royal Highness Princess Anne as well as many serving and retired members of the Corps and their families and friends. Not long after this the UK went into lockdown following the Covid outbreak; as a result many planned events could not take place.

We are very grateful to those who sent their best wishes to the Corps and those who worked on putting together the centenary book ‘Roger So Far’ as well as special features such as 100 years of the Corps in 100 objects and on this day.

It might not have been the year as planned but memories were shared across social media platforms and chat groups and our soldiers continued to work to support and defend our country – which included vital work at vaccination centres.

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
