Royal Signals Jimmy

Alan Bailey

I was called up in July and went to Catterick Camp. For basic training I
went to Vimy lines (7TR), then transferred to Baghdad lines (2TR) for
technical training. I then went to a posting camp in Chester before being
sent to Germany for the remainder in 11Air Formation Signal Regiment. I was
attached to the R.A.F and based at R.A.F Sundern. From there I was posted
to various airfields, namely Gutersloh, Jever, Bielefeld, Munchen and
Schleswig in Denmark working on airfield communications.
