A Brief History of Our Branch
The branch was formed in 1929 after World War One and the formation of the Royal Corps of Signals from the Royal Engineers. Our minutes are only available since the conclusion of the Second World War and were known as the “Old Comrades Association” This was changed by recommendation from the Royal Signals HQ to the present Liverpool Branch of the Royal Signals Association.Meetings began with the kind permission of the Commanding Officer at the headquarters of the 22nd Lancashire Divisional Signals TA, Score Lane, Broadgreen, and Liverpool. This building was named “Signal House” and was officially opened by Lt Gen Sir Harry C Jackson, KCB;CMG;DSO in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Alderman M Cory Dixon, on Saturday 9th April 1938. The drill hall was then occupied by 55th (West Lancashire) Divisional Signals TA. The Commanding officer at this time was Lt Col R Baron, TD. A full list of the officers at this time of the group is held in the Liverpool branch Archives.
Our Secretary looks after the welfare issues for any of our ex Corps members in difficulties. We have an excellent and active entertainments committee who plan and organise social events which culminate in our Annual Christmas Dinner in December. We have a Branch Annual subscription of £10.00, which goes towards subsidising our Branch activities. Members over the age of 75 do not pay subscriptions. We are now also on Facebook, so you can make contact in this way. We do not expect our members to attend every meeting as we appreciate that family and work commitments must take priority. We do however hope to see you 2 or 3 times in the year especially at our AGM in March each Year. Any ex members, or affiliated units to the Royal Corps of Signals and serving members of the Royal Corps of Signals are most welcome to attend our meetings, who knows who you will meet and then you can decide whether to join us or not.
