Roger So Far …

The Royal Signals Centenary book Roger So Far … celebrates many of the Corps’ achievements during its first 100 years.  It includes contributions from over 400 individuals most of whom are either serving or retired members of the Corps.  It is full of stories about people, units and events in the context of campaigns, technologies and equipment.  It is a hardback coffee table style book that contains large numbers of pictures and photographs as well as information and is designed to be accessible to a wide audience.  It will be available from 29 June 2020.  The book will have a cover price of £30 but will be available to Regular, Reserve and Retired Corps members, their families, people with links to the Corps and to people who work or volunteer for the Corps or in support of the Corps at the heavily discounted price of £9.99 (plus £4.20 postage and packaging if posted) during the Corps Centenary Year.  Precise details regarding how to order copies can be found on the website of the Royal Signals Museum Shop at www.royalsignalsshop.uk

Review from the June edition of Soldier magazine

Amps and ohms are not normally subjects to stir the interest of military historians, but the author of this title, by cleverly interspersing the “dry” bits with factual nuggets and personal anecdotal evidence, has succeeded in creating a highly readable and informative book. This is not a traditional history of the Royal Corps of Signals, more a coffee table-style offering, that will appeal to the cognoscenti and younger readers alike. It provides a wealth of information and the format breaks a very detailed account into digestible chunks. Well illustrated and filled with fascinating photographs, it comes highly recommended.   Alistair Clark, ex-Royal Signals
