As the only signal based unit in London, our primary role is to provide Information Communication Systems (ICS) to the emergency services and local government in the event of emergencies. The squadron provides a rapid deployment of reliable and robust communications with the additional requirement of resilience. As a result the squadron can be called upon to provide support to the government, police or other blue light services at little notice.
In recent years the Squadron was heavily involved in support to the London Olympics and was a major base of operations for military personnel from our Army Reserve Centre at Whipps Cross in East London. We also provided communications support to the recent flood relief provided by the military. We have also recently been involved in the Fire Service strikes, Ambulance Strikes and Fuel Strikes.
In addition to providing support to the emergency services and the local government the regiment also supports the operations with the regular army. We provide secure radio communications across the UK alongside our affiliated regular unit 206 Signal Squadron.
Previously the Squadron has also seen its soldiers and officers deployed on operations to the Balkans in a squadron that consisted entirely from Army Reserve soldiers, also many of our soldiers and officers been to Iraq (Op TELIC) and more recently Afghanistan (Op HERRICK).
