Default Unidentified Signals unit

Probably elements of HQ 7 Armd Div in Aversa, just north of Naples, Sep/Oct 43. The markings on the truck on the left (Morris-Commercial 15 cwt 4x2) identify it as HQ 7 Armd Div Signals. The truck on the right (Truck 1/2 ton 4x4 Dodge WC-1) appears to have a R Signals blue/white plate on the nearside front wing. But what is the badge on the driver's door? It looks to me like a crowned Maltese cross on a dark coloured disc. Was a badge like this ever worn by some obscure TA regiment with a R Signals role? All ideas welcome!

Default Signals unit

It could be 6th London which were transferred to the Royal Engineers or the 11th London which were transferred to the Royal Artillery.

What happened to The Rangers after the changes in the late thirties? The badge looks a little like it. Kevin
