Prompt containing SSH login information

again, a strange question: I'd like to know if there is a builtin
means to let the csh's (or bash's) prompt show an information if
the current dialog session has been opened via SSH from another
system. The obvious is:
me at sys1:~% ssh me at sys2
me at sys2:~% _
I'd like the second prompt that I've been logged into sys2 by
sys1, such as
me at sys1>sys2:~% _
me at sys2<sys1:~% _
or something similar, like the complex form with different user
names, such as
me at sys1:~% ssh bob at sys2
me at sys1>bob at sys2:~% _
Is this possible with the means given by the shell? I read "man
csh", but found nothing that would fit.
Maybe it's not possible (because not intended)...
