Military communication or “comms” includes activities, equipment, techniques and tactics used by the military in battlefields, on land, under water and air and include command, control, communications and intelligence. Various frequencies are used to send signals to other radios and satellites.
With the development of military comms that included the use of distinctive signals came the eventual formation of the Signal Corps, a corps specializing in tactics of military comms. Today the Signal Corps has evolved into a distinctive occupation where the signaller is a highly technical job held by men and women today.
The Canadian Military Heritage Museum of Brant County has an extensive communications exhibit showcasing many communication pieces including the use of pigeons to send messages during WWI to radio equipment from WWII and Korea. The following are but a few images of the communication collection on public view at the museum.
