264 (SAS) Squadron provides dedicated communications support to 22 Special Air Service.
Often deploying alongside the Sabre Squadrons, these signallers ensure that the SAS can communicate in a secure and reliable fashion not just within the Squadron’s area of operations but also with Hereford, their home base.
The men of 264 (SAS) Signals are part of the Royal Corps of Signals and have not gone through SAS selection, although they do have to pass the Special Forces Communicator (SFC) selection course.
