I'm in the HAC. Pretty new. I am looking if a fellow arrser can give me a straight answer. Last year some officer from 4/73 Bty came to Armoury House and gave us all a big presentation about what a brilliant time 4/73 had on Herrick. Lots of video and slides of blokes looking ally and nails. He said that they were going to be the BRF for Herrick 11 and 12 and that it was a cert they would get really good jobs so we should all sign up and mobilise. And our PSIs said the same, went on about the Brigade Recce and how if we volunteered we would be part of a unit not sent out as single reinforcements because some of the blokes have had a really sh*t time when they got sent as single reinforcements to other units. Now the rumour is that 4/73 wont be the BRF. I have some mates who are going to do FST jobs but after what we got told last year this is confusing.. What I want to know is what HONESTLY is the difference. I know about the different jobs. But why was the officer making such a fuss about 473 getting the BRF job ? And if 4/73 are not doing it who is ?
