For someone claiming to be a 5-years served AAC LCpl, if you can't find this information out at your unit then you probably don't even deserve your tape. BAS (the COB now) didn't get set up last week you know.
seriously, theres (not enough to run two crews) goin an a stripy, whos not ere, the crews full of nigs and Ive not been to iraq before.
I have heard Basra is very well equipped, but I have not aclue about accom. work pattern, or even role out there to be honest, I know when Im goin an when Im comin home, and thats basically it,
Accom is not too bad really, tents with (struggling) aircon and your own individual mozzie pods. A lot better that what a lot of people suffer on ops. PX non-existant, NAAFI shop reasonable but limited. Echos coffee-shop type place has PAYG wi-fi access, saves queuing for the Paradigm computers. And Pizza shed, of course.
Det has a good work setup, large hangars with plenty of aircon (door opened each end ). 4 Lynx, currently Mk 9's. Long days, plenty of night taskings. Reasonable amount of incoming, but station is massive so they tend not to hit much. Sometimes.
