The Silk Banner

Normal Roll of South Vietnam and Solomon Islands

104 Signal Squadron Service

South Vietnam Flag  Solomon Island Flag

The Silk Banner construction was coordinated by Radio Op CPL Darrin Gibson from 104 Sig Sqn on Operation Anode in the Solomon Islands in 2004.  It is a enormous engraved wooden rosewood scroll carved by a master craftsman in the Solomon Islands, with a silk banner hanging off it. On the scroll is the nominal roll of 104 Sig Sqn for South Vietnam (1st Australian Task Force) and on the bottom the Solomon Islands (Combined Joint Task Force 635).

The Silk Banner proudly hangs in the 1CSR Abraham Club (unit boozer) with carved icons of all the trades within our Corps, as well as traditional icons such as; slouch hat, rising sun and an armoured vehicle for all to see.
