The Royal Signals Association (RSA) was formed in 1920 at the birth of the Corps from the Royal Engineers. The objects of The Association are:

  • To provide comfort and relief either generally or individually to past and present signalers and their dependants who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress.
  • To foster comradeship and morale within the Corps family, serving and retired.

Structure[edit]

Working within Regimental Headquarters Royal Signals, based in Blandford Camp, Dorset, are the Welfare Section and the Membership Section.

The Welfare Section assists signallers by way of grants of money or paying for items to reduce hardship and distress.

The Membership Section maintains records of all the branches and affiliated associations located throughout the country, plus their members. Any person who served with the Corps (Regular, TA or National Service), including ATS and WRAC is eligible to join The Association.
