€ 35,00

The Royal Canadian Corps of Signals (RCCS, RC Sigs) is a corps of the Canadian Army.

Major Wallace Bruce Matthews Carruthers established a militia (Non-Permanant Active Militia) component of signallers under the designation "Signalling Corps" on 24 October, 1903, making it the first independent signal corps in the British Empire (predating the Telegraph Battalion of the Royal Corps of Signals in the British Army).

It was redesignated "The Canadian Signal Corps" on 4 June, 1913. On 1 April 1919 as part of the restructuring based on experiences during the Great War, a regular (Permanent Active Militia) component was established as the "Canadian Signalling Instructional Staff". This was redesignated "The Canadian Permanent Signal Corps" on 15 December, 1920. Shortly thereafter, on 15 June, 1921, King George V, the Canadian monarch, bestowed on the permanent force portion of the organization the title "The Royal Canadian Corps of Signals". Meanwhile, on 1 August, 1921, the militia component was re-titled "Canadian Corps of Signals"; redesignated "Royal Canadian Corps of Signals" on 29 April, 1936 (as part of the larger military restructuring that year); and finally aligned in nomenclature with the regular component as "The Royal Canadian Corps of Signals" on 22 March, 1948, after the conclusion of the Second World War.
