About Eden Camp
A warm welcome awaits
In 2016 thirteen standards from RSA Branches were on parade, this increased to seventeen in 2017. The 2018 programme is under the photos below. The Parade is led by the Royal Corps of Signals Northern Band. Every year the formal Service and Parade begins at 1400 hrs, but members of the Corps family are invited to spend the day exploring Eden Camp and its fabulous exhibitions and joining in Corps activities. The museum is open to the general public who are welcome to watch the parade.

The second Eden Camp Parade took place at Malton Camp, Yorkshire on Sunday 22 May 2016. The day was a fantastic opportunity for regular, reserve, serving and retired members of The Corps and their families to get together. Entry to Eden Camp is free on the day for Royal Signals personnel – serving or retired – and their families.
The Corps was proudly represented on parade by the Northern Band, Regular and Reserve Units, 14 Standards and 54 members of the Association which was watched by a crowd of upwards of 300 people. This year the salute was taken by The Corps Colonel, Col Simon Hutchinson MBE ADC.
Huge thanks go to the organising committee and to Eden Camp for their time and generosity. Money raised at the event, from the sale of badges and R SIGNALS memorabilia, was donated to The RSBF – The Corps’ Charity – helping those who serve or who have served and now need help or support.
