The Corps of Signals was established by Royal Warrant on 28 June 1920. Six weeks later, on 5 August, the title ‘The Royal Corps of Signals’ was conferred by King George V.
From its earliest days the Corps has been engaged in operations across the globe and its officers and soldiers have been duly recognised for their gallantry and valuable service. Published by the Royal Signals Institution in celebration of the Royal Signals centennial, this book records the honours, decorations, and medals awarded to all ranks since 1920.
In parallel, here will be published stories discovered during the course of the research, with an emphasis on active operations and gallantry.
Nick Metcalfe is a former Royal Signals officer and the author of Blacker’s Boys, the First World War history of the 9th Royal Irish Fusiliers, and For Exemplary Bravery, the story of the Queen’s Gallantry Medal.
