On 28th June 2020, Field Service Representatives from EWS commemorated 100 years since the formation of the Royal Corps of Signals from the Royal Engineers at a regimental breakfast in Somalia.
Recreating a WO and Sgts Mess, Alf Cupper, the Presiding Member was joined at the top table by two honoured guests from SAIC, Pete McMullen and Jimbo Bowes who are both ex-Royal Ulster Constabulary. In Country Manager, John Cordery was the President of Entertainment with Mike Iles as Mr. Vice.
As part of the centenary celebrations, the guests enjoyed a presentation by Jamie Leishman from EWS, which showcased the different Royal Corps of Signals units that the EWS FSRs had been posted to over their combined 170+ years of military service.
A fabulous breakfast meal was provided by the talented staff at SKA Somalia, and both the members and guests toasted Her Majesty the Queen, the Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Corps of Signals – Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, and of course absent friends.
EWS wishes the Royal Corps of Signals, 1920-2020 a very happy 100th birthday and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has served and is still serving with them.
