Corps of Signals: Down memory lane Bangalore

The Hindu archives: Life in Bangalore: Evening to remember- 21 Feb 2003

Col. K. Raghunathan (left) and Hema Raghunathan (centre), who hosted the 92nd anniversary celebrations of the Corps of Signals, seen with Ms. S.L. Kapoor (second from left), Sudha Hiremath, and Maj Gen (retd.), Suresh Hiremath.

IT WAS an evening to remember for serving officers and retired veterans of the Corps of Signals. The birthday bash to celebrate 92 years of the Corps' official existence saw a large gathering of officers and their wives on the lawns of the Officers' Mess on Cubbon Road.

Col. K. Raghunathan and his wife, Hema, played hosts, taking time off to introduce the few media personnel to the officers. There was a lot of swapping of stories about shared experiences. Those with claims to musical talent were invited to take the mike. There was also the ceremonial opening of bottles of champagne with spirited toasts to the Corps, an organisation which keeps the Indian Army's communication lines going.
