Readers of this Guestbook may be interested to know that from the Royal Signals Museum website under History and Heritage is a "Wire" archive. Opening the PDFs allows you to view the magazine and of course find the Squadron input for that particular period including many photographs. I would add a link but it seems that is not permitted. Enjoy

Hi Guys, Obituaries Ė I know this is a difficult subject but having lost our obituaries scribe it is becoming difficult to put a good obit together, doing justice to the guy, quoting dates and service accurately with other memorable information.

My request is that if you would like an orbituary on the website you actually think about writing one now. I am sure this will save a lot of heartache and possible distress in the future.

Please take a look at the format we have adopted, no more than a couple of pages of A4 with a photograph (Jpeg) if you wish.

I would suggest that you send Ray or me a copy in Word format, or give us a copy at the reunion. Hopefully we will not need it for many years.

Going one step forward I could actually format it and send a copy for your approval.

If you need any help please drop me an email.

I only use this means to keep up with whatís going on. I know that a lot of brothers use Twitter to keep in touch but I am not a fan of it. This site is more secure as many Twitter users will know. Please keep the site and letís hope we can attract some of our airborne brothers back . Dave (Jacko) Beware the Moor Hen
