19 MECHANISED BRIGADE HQ AND SIGNALS SQUADRON

The 19 Mech Brigade stable belt in Royal Signals colours was issued in late 1993 just after the brigade moved from Colchester to Catterick Garrison. The initial issue of belts cost 11.00 and each soldier was required to purchase and wear this belt. Non Royal Signals personnel wore the same buckle with a belt in their own corps or regimental colours. Many of the RLC/ AGC and REME personnel just wore their normal stable belts.Soldiers of the signal sqn were also required to purchase a unit sweatshirt in royal blue and a green t- shirt, both with the "puking panther" as the brigade flash was known or be forced to wear issue PT kit of red v neck vest, blue shorts and green army socks with daps.

This belt was worn with working dress, barrack dress and combats. If in jumper order it was worn over the woolly pully. The new belt was still being worn with Soldier '95 kit when I left the squadron in 1999. I still have my original belt purchased for 11.

Prior to that the normal Royal Signals stable/ plastic working/ 1958 pattern belts were worn in catterick along with the Royal Signals lanyard when in summer working dress. The lanyard and stable belt were usually worn to show that the soldier was from the field army and not from the training regiments - 8 and 11 Sigs at Vimy and Helles barracks.

This belt was in use through the 60's into the mid 70's when I left the Squadron and I think may have continued
