Corps Centenary Events


A Royal Warrant for the creation of a Corps of Signals was signed by the Secretary of State for War, Winston Churchill, on 28 June 1920. Six weeks later, King George V conferred the title "Royal" on the Corps.

So it is, in 2020, that the Royal Corps of Signals celebrates 100 years of providing the British Army with all forms of communications.

On the 29th February 2020 a service of celebration was held at Salisbury Cathedral. Serving soldiers of 3 Div Signals, Cadets and Veterans paraded past the our Colonel in Chief, HRH the Princess Royal and 1200 spectators with affiliations to Corps, before the entering the cathedral for the service.
