About this event

The Royal Corps of Signals is a crucial support arm of the British Army that has to be familiar with all the latest means of communication.  Without communication it would be impossible to fulfil the role of the Army.   

The Royal Signals Museum houses the national collection of military communications equipment and vividly tells the story of military communications and of The Corps via a series of exhibitions – including interactive exhibitions and displays.   The Museum showcases 80 years of the Royal Corps of Signals.

The Museum has installed a series of exciting exhibitions including  the story of the modern-day, high-tech signaller.  Displays illustrate the wide ranging role of the Corps both on the Battlefield and beyond.   The displays are planned and created by serving soldiers from the different Units and so provide a soldiers perspective of their roles and responsibilities.
Current displays include:
  • Cyber Warfare
  • Satellite Communications
  • Special Forces
  • This guided tour of the Museum will be led by Museum staff and will focus on the equipment and processes that have made a significant contribution to modern military communication systems and processes
