37th Signal Regiment On completion of their RSA fund raising challenge at The NMA July 2016

The National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. It is a living and lasting memorial occupying 150 acre site adjacent to the confluence of the River Tame with the River Trent.

An Act of Remembrance is held daily in the Chapel on the site and throughout the year many services take place at Corps, Regiment and Organisation plots. An annual service is held at the Armed Forces Memorial at the centre of the site on Remembrance Sunday.

The Royal Corps of Signals Memorial, funded by donations from individuals and Royal Signals Association branches was officially unveiled by our Colonel in Chief, HRH The Princess Royal on 20 May 2008 in the presence of more than 1,000 past and present members of the Corps. The Corps is most grateful to those who kindly made a donation. The memorial was further enhanced in the summer of 2011 by the addition of surrounding stonework and a low wall. The Royal Signals Benevolent Fund continues to maintain the Corps plot and welcomes donations to further this work.
