Brown Envelopes

Got back home earlier this evening to find that I had a brown envelope waiting for me. Heading out to Afghanistan next year.

How many others in the same boat then?

Did you get compulsary mobilised or is this something you put in for?

Well it was compulsary mobilisation of the sort where they asked for volunteers first...

Found out more about our role last night. Going to be joining the ARRC Spt Bn, likely as a 4th platoon within a regular coy.

That should read 4th platoon within a regular RLC coy but I guess your going as Force Protection
Sorry, 4th Platoon within a regular Pioneer coy, so they're almost real soldiers as opposed to blanket stackers... :lol:

The Royal Pioneer Corps merged with the RCT, ACC, RAOC and elements of the Royal Engineers to form the Really Large Corps in 1993 Combat Service Support

You can read about the Bn on this link ARRC - 1st Signal Brigade.

what type of unit r u???
[whinge]
1. Is it really so difficult to type the full words out?
2. Is the time you save so valuable?
3. This isn't an SMS message...
[/whinge]

Sorry, but it is one of my pet hates...

Anyway, to answer your question, I'm infantry...
