93 (NSY) SP Sig Sqn

93rd (North Somerset Yeomanry) SP Signal Squadron

The North Somerset Yeomanry was formed in 1798, when a Cavalry Troop was raised in Frome called the Frome and Selwood Volunteers.

The Sqn was raised to protect local towns and villages in the event of invasion by the Napoleonic forces.

200 years later, whilst we may have traded in our Cavalry horses for the latest MAN Turbo Powered trucks, the North Somerset Yeomanry original role of protecting local towns and villages has not changed.  However, today this is done using the latest Satellite communications and in our support service to our 3 other sister squadrons within 39 Signal Regiment.


93rd (North Somerset Yeomanry) Signal Squadron is based in Bristol and provides life support and Communications Information Systems in support UK Operation.

The Squadron provides a rapid deployment of reliable and robust communications with the additional requirement of resilience.

This means that the Squadron can be called upon to support the government, police and other blue light services at little to no notice.

Previously the Squadron deployed at minimal notice to support the police by providing communications during floods & recently during the Olympics.

Much of the time is spent working hard and training, one night a week in the Army Reserve Centre and at least two weekends on exercise.
