Guys I know that this has probably been done to death but I've spent a couple of hours searching ARRSE and the web and can't find details anywhere. Can one of you kind souls please confirm baggage allowance for Herrick.
Having recently had the pleasure (?) of sitting in the checking-in 'lounge' for many hours last week, I am pretty sure that the picture on the desk showed you are allowed a Bergen and a Black Bag (or similar containers), to a total AUW of 55Kg max, plus hand baggage, body armourt, and helmet. Laptops are to be in a daysack or similar - you are only meant to take on one item of hand luggage (plus helmet, CBA).
Make sure you have some kit to keep you fresh for the wait, a five hour journey that is turned into a 15 hour epic by RAF ineffiency . I was close to losing it the other week with the crab bastards. 3 stops, 3 crew changes, 3 refuels, 3 getting off the aircraft, had to turn around because of DAS.
If you are a crab bluesuit reading this, sort yourselfs out you civvy in uniforms!
One black bag,
Helmet and body Armour
