Army signallers receive Afghanistan campaign medals
Soldiers from the 7th Armoured Brigade Headquarters and Signal Squadron (207 Signal Squadron) have been presented with campaign medals after a demanding six-month tour in Afghanistan.
The 39 soldiers of 207 Signal Squadron, which has a long and distinguished connection with the most famous brigade in the British Army – the Desert Rats, were based around Helmand province between March and October 2011.
Personnel were primarily involved in bolstering the communications squadron of 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines and managing communications at forward operating bases and checkpoints, partnering members of the Afghan Army, and also taking on an infantry role going on patrols and manning sangars (guard watchtowers).
