31 Signal Squadron

We are a Royal Signals communications Squadron based in Uxbridge. We also have a Troop based in Coulsdon. Our role is to provide Information Communication Systems (ICS) to the Emergency Services and to the local Government in the event of an emergency.

In recent years the Brigade has been involved in the Fireman strikes (OP FRESCO), fuel strikes (OP ESCALIN) and the floods (OP PITCHPOLE) with soldiers and officers of the Squadron and Regiment being involved in a number of these.

In addition to providing communications support to emergency services, the Squadron also supports Military Operation. The Squadron has had soldiers deploy to the Middle East (OP TELIC and OP HERRICK) and many more deployments since the Gulf War.

31 (Middlesex Yeomanry and Princess Louise's Kensington) Signal Squadron is a very busy unit and constantly training for our role within the Regiment, as well as training soldiers to be able to pass their annual Military Tests. Various types of communications are central to our training but are alongside military, physical and adventure training.
