The Fovant Badges Society is a voluntary organisation, which has the objective of maintaining the regimental badges that were carved into the chalk downs above the village of Fovant by the soldiers of those regiments. The Society is determined that the Badges shall remain an historic, fitting and truly visible memorial to the soldiers who passed through Fovant and its neighbouring villages on their way to the Great War, many never to return.

The Royal Corps of Signals (often simply known as the Royal Signals - abbreviated to R SIGNALS) is one of the combat support arms of the British Army. Signals units are among the first into action, providing the battlefield communications and information systems essential to all operations. Royal Signals units provide the full telecommunications infrastructure for the Army wherever they operate in the world. The Corps has its own engineers, logistics experts and systems operators to run radio and area networks in the field.[1] It is responsible for installing, maintaining and operating all types of telecommunications equipment and information systems, providing command support to commanders and their headquarters, and conducting electronic warfare against enemy communications.

Hi Diggory,

Impressed, I really am, you must have a military background to come up with the comments you have made which adds a lot more interest to the short descriptions I had made. I did have a lot to do with the Royal Signals , as I was involved in training the first tranch of soldiers for Ptarmigan, Vixen, and other projects when I worked for Plessey Defence Systems.

Best wishes.........Gordon.........
