Does anyone know what the SSRE with 4 para actually entails once you pass p comany and become attached to a regular battalion, do you know what the chances are of being deployed to Afghanistan are and if any previous SSRE lads have been in the past?
After completion of the SSRE training package, you will go to Chilwell for processing onto Full Time Reserve Service (FTRS) to 2 or 3 Para. What you do after that depends on what they are doing - you join as a Pte soldier and do whatever you are told to do!
Several of the previous SSREs have provided soldiers who deployed to Afghanistan.
I'm looking to join the 2010 intake of SSRE, (if there is one) sounds like a great experience, maybe the guys doing this years one could post their experiences when they get a chance as the more info I can get about what it'll be like the better.
