Update on the progress of this new blog

At the end of December 2019 I started this blog to share and record my father's photographs. Rowland Bott served in the Royal Signals during World War II. He was stationed in Egypt. Just after the war he was posted to Palestine.

I am slowly uploading images and documents to tell this story of Dad - A Royal Signals Sergeant.

So, I have made the blog immediately live.

There will, for now, be some errors amongst the pages whilst I sort, compose, organise, find out what the images are, try to understand the many acronyms as well as doing a little bit of research into what is a new subject for me.

As I progress there will or may be changes to the order of pages, new pages, additions, and more information especially on the A-Z Who's Who page.

I have also now added a Search facility and page of Links.

Creating the story of a Royal Signals Sergeant

This is the beginning of the story of my Dad - Rowland Bott (No. 2342915).

He was a Sergeant in the Royal Signals during World War II (1939-1945).

He served mainly in Egypt during the war, and, immediately afterwards in Palestine. The story will be mainly told using his collection of photos.

Please keep coming back as this blog develops - hopefully getting well established as we approach the centenary of the Royal Signals in June 2020.
