Shoulder title, other ranks, Royal Corps of Signals, 1925 (c)

Brass badge in the form of the unit title with curved title, 'Royal Corps', over 'of' between straight bars, over curved title, 'Signals'.

For many years, British Army units undertook their own signalling duties. The first professional body of signallers arose in 1870, when Captain Montague Lambert formed 'C' Telegraph Troop within the Royal Engineers. The Army's signallers only became a corps of their own in 1920, instantly gaining the 'Royal' prefix. The Royal Corps of Signals was assigned a place in the order of precedence between the Royal Engineers and the Foot Guards.
