Meeting the TA

Monday, August 1, 2011

Recently Meg Munn MP visited one of the local Territorial Army units based in Heeley constituency - the 64 Signal Squadron, 38 Signal Regiment of the Royal Corps of Signals based at Manor Top. She was briefed by the Colonel of the Regiment about their role, which involves providing Information Communication Systems to the emergency services and local government in an emergency.

 

After the briefing she was had dinner with a number of the officers of the unit. Following dinner Meg mixed with young soldiers who were relaxing in the bar ahead of a weekend’s adventure training. In recent years the unit has been active during various emergency situations such as floods, foot and mouth and the fuel crisis.

 

This Territorial Army unit also has squadrons in Derby and Blackburn. They are part of 2 (National Communications) Signal Brigade, made up of six signal regiments and two independent Signal Squadrons spread across the UK.

 

Meg said:

 

"The Territorial Army provide vital support to civilian services in peace time emergencies. I am proud of the role these local soldiers have played in recent emergencies, including the Cumbrian floods.

 

I am also conscious that a number of our local TA soldiers do tours of duty in Afghanistan putting themselves in danger to protect us. I am very grateful for the service they give."
