More Royal Signals Gallantry Awards

There are now some additions to the blog that supports my project examining Royal Signals gallantry awards:

A photograph appeared in The Wire in June 1959 under the heading: ‘Who are they? Where are they now?’ I answered the question almost 60 years on (!) and a version of that appeared in The Wire in the Winter 2018 (i.e. January 2019) edition. The photo below is linked to a pdf of the article:

Having been sent the diaries of the Chief Signal Officer China Command, Lieutenant Colonel E. O. Levett OBE, and having read the outstanding story of the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals detachment sent to Hong Kong by D. Burke Penny, I was able to update the story of the Hong Kong Signal Company.

Finally, I wrote a piece about Royal Signals gallantry awards on D-Day. The photo of Lance Corporal Danny Bowstead MM below is linked to the story.
