Lincoln Branch - Royal Signals Association
The Branch currently has 30 members, not just from Lincoln, but from all parts of the county including, Cleethorpes, Scunthorpe, Sleaford, Louth and Horncastle.
We are a small but active branch, thanks to our Entertainments Officers, John Hudson & Edd Mulhall, who organise our dinners, lunches and visits. We also enjoy a close relationship with the Lincoln Branch of the Parachute Regt Association, who hold their meetings on the same night as ours. Afterwards we all get together in the bar for a convivial evening.
The Corps Family looks after its own
Each year hundreds of thousands of pounds of RSBF money is channeled to serving or former Signalers and their dependents in need. We at local level have a dedicated Visiting Officer who carries out hospital visits and home visits, it is time consuming but worthwhile. We report at monthly branch meetings on how individual members, who are absent through illness, are fairing – keeping members in the picture and ensuring we carry on looking after our own.
The Branch prides itself on being a family of retired Officers and soldiers of the Corps and we try hard to encourage serving members from local units to come along to meetings – keeping the retired members in the picture with the serving Corps.
We encourage and actively seek new members of the Corps Family to join the Branch. If you are an ex member of the Corps living in Lincolnshire come along and join us, you will be made most welcome.
The meetings are held in the The Keep at 1930hrs. Meet in the bar at 1900hrs.
All serving and ex-members of the Corps are welcome, along with any ex-WRAC ladies who were attached to the Corps.
Membership of the branch (not the RSA) is an annual payment of £10.

Members of the Branch and serving members of the Corps based at Waddington, assembled at the Royal Naval Association (Lincoln) Club to see Pat Constance present the RNA with a model of the cruiser HMS Exeter.
Pat had made this model when he was 15 years old, 80 years ago. It is scratch built from a plan he’d found in a craft magazine.
