Our Grateful thanks.
Some of the history of the Regiment which is recorded on these History pages and some of the subsequent photographs is due to the research and information gleaned plus hours of hard work by the last Commanding Officer of the Regiment Lt. Col.C.J.Gilbert. who spent a labour of love in producing his book “The Regimental History of 19th Signal regiment (Air Support) 1943 to 1971″
I cannot thank you enough………John Hill Webmaster
In his Foreword to the book, Air Vice Marshal N.M.Maynard, the Air Commander of the Far East Air Force wrote “I would like to take this opportunity of putting on record a word of thanks to all past and present members of the Regiment on behalf of the RAF, RAAF, and the RNZAF which makes up the Far East Air Force. We have demanded the very best in tactical lines of communication over a long period in difficult circumstances.You have a given a service second to none. Of this you can be justly proud. I am not going to wish members of 19 Signal Regiment good luck.You Don’t need it. Instead I wish you success:You richly deserve it.”
