Signallers with the King?s African Rifles

Photograph: Signallers with the King?s African Rifles taking down a message, 1943. Captioned: Signaller taking down a messge. Signals units made an invaluable contribution to the success of the King?s African Rifles in Burma. Signallers faced a plethora of difficulties in the harsh climate. These included steep hills, torrential monsoon rainfall, heat and humidity, which all served to block or weaken radio signals. This combined with the weight and limited reliability of the radio sets, the problems with batteries and charging engines, the constant laying and repairing of telephone cable, illustrates the magnitude of their achievement in maintaining effective communications during the campaign. From collection of photographs of King?s African Rifles during World War Two (1939-1945). 41 loose leaves containing 93 photographs. Date: 1943
