The Squadron is a Royal Signals Territorial Army
unit based in Aylesbury, with detachments at Bedford and Cambridge. The role of the Squadron is to provide secure radio communications in support of 2 (National Communications) Signal Brigade, using a variety of communications equipment. The Squadron provides VHF (Very High Frequency) and HF (High Frequency) communications in order to pass information in support of military units or civilian organisations, through the operation of Radio Rebroadcast (REBRO) and Rear Link Detachments (RLDs).
The unit was formed as an Independent Squadron in July 1999 from E Company, 5th Battalion, The Royal Green Jackets (initially intended to form part of 72 Signal Regiment) and was regimented to 71 (Yeomanry) Signal Regiment in September 2002. Following the TA Rebalancing of 2006, the Squadron transferred to 36 (Eastern) Signal Regiment.
