Branch History

Through a letter to the Northern Echo by Lt Col W A Lee Royal Signals, a meeting was held at the Imperial Hotel, Darlington on the 23rd October 1945 with 43 members or ex members of the Royal Signals attending.A temporary committee was voted in, their task was to obtain the necessary information with respect to the forming of a branch in Darlington. A meeting was held at the British Legion Club on the 10th December 1945 and it was agreed that adverts would be placed in the NAAFI Club Darlington and local cinemas. It worked as and informal meetings were held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month, and committee meetings were held monthly.

In August 1947 the drill hall of 50 (N) Signal Regiment (TA) in Larchfield Street Darlington became available, and branch meetings were held there for twenty years until February 1967 when the TA Centre closed. The meetings were moved to the new TA Centre in Neasham Road. The first meeting was held on the 6th April 1967 and the meetings are still Continuing there today, 43 years later.
