I have spent the past three years in a UOTC where i completed Modules 1-3 as well as numerous other TA courses. I am now looking to rejoin a local Infantry TA unit in 51 Brigade, and hope to go on an operational tour in Afghanistan during the summer prior to doing regualr sandhurst in 2010. My question is about the requirements needed to qualify for deployment other than MATTS which i have already done? Will i have to redo phase 1 recruits training again? Also, having only just come from a UOTC, what are the procedures with volunteering for HERRICK? n.b. Any Inf. units in 51 Brigade that are particularly worth looking at?
