Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just quick question.

    Im going to Afghan next March/ April, This will be my first tour and was wondering what number it will be by then.
     
  2. No wah, Genuine question.
     
  3. Its not hard to work out. Some one in your unit will be able to tell you. Im off there next year after you and I know what Op Herrick number im goining on. Infact I knew the number last year.

    If you cant work it out then Im sure some one will tell you in here.
     
  4. Obviously as this your first tour it will be Herrick 1 for you, however for some in your unit it may be Herrick 2 or even 3. Don't worry though the BFPO number is the same whatever Herrick it is for you. And the days of the week remain the same for people on Herrick 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and so on. It just helps to avoid confusion. Hope this has helped.
     
  5. I'm due to deploy on Herrick 57 next Thursday.

    By the time you fly you should be on about Herrick 95.
     
  6. Mate, fu.ck all that court mounting lark. I'm just going to buy some bars off ebay with the Op numbers scribed on them and rack them up on the original medal.

    I was on 36 but got short toured due to a yeast infection on me helmet.
     
  7. just get tat scrolls done, cheaper and you dont have to polish them or get miniture for mess dress
