Signals Command was the RAF's command responsible for control of signals units from 1958 to 1969. It was based at RAF Medmenham near Marlow, Buckinghamshire.


The Command was formed on 3 November 1958 by raising No. 90 Group to Command status.[1] It was a relatively short-lived Command, lasting only until 1 January 1969, when it was absorbed by Strike Command by being reduced to group status.[1] It had five Air Officers Commanding during its existence.
