Heritage

Tracing its roots back to the Second World War, 16 Signal Regiment was created in Germany where it was responsible for providing lines of communication between Germany and the English Channel.  During its time in Germany it developed strong relationships with the local community, resulting in being awarded the Freedom of Krefeld in 1972 and being presented the Stadt Fahnenband in 1992.

Location

16 Signal Regiment is located in Stafford along with 1 Signal Regiment and 22 Signal Regiment.

This is the largest concentration of Royal Signals soldiers in one location and ensures a close knit professional community.  The camp has good transport links to London and the rest of the UK. 

Partnerships

The Regiment has an ongoing partnership with 41 Regiment de Transmissions of the French Army.  Bilateral visits of Regimental personnel offer great opportunities to experience different training methods and presents an opportunity to practice interoperability with our allies in Douai, France.
