The best team
Every year Force Troops Command Operational Shooting Competition (FTC OSC), regarded as the largest shooting competition of its kind in the world with more than 1000 competitors from various cap badges, takes place. This is a qualifying competition for the Army 100 and The Corps consistently has the top team across all eight cap badges who enter Regimental sides; put simply The Royal Corps of Signals dominates Operational Shooting in the Army.
Over the last two years approximately one third of the the top firers in the Army have been Royal Signals soldiers. In 2015 Sgt Khagendra a Royal Signals soldier won the competition. As a result he received the much coveted Queens Medal which he is allowed to wear with his other medals. This precision performance was closely matched in both 2014 and 2016 when he was runner-up – a fantastic achievement.
