Dismounted on Telic

#1
H Sqn JCBRN Regt (1RTR) are to deploy as a light infantry company on Telic 9. Is this a one off ? is it because they don't have tanks? or is it the start of non infantry units doing NI style infantry tours of Iraq?

What do you mean start? Haven't the Gunners been doing this for ages? I certainly don't remember seeing any big guns on Telic 4.

B Sqn QDG did a Bosnia Tour in 96 with the Jackets, GV what a place!!!!!!!!!!!! My f**king feet are still hurting. And again B Sqn QDG did Telic 1 as Lt Role Landrover Sqn in the close protection role. Also QDG are just finishing the LRDG type stuff in Al Muthanna. So, not unusual, but we are adept at anything and not scared of a bit of diversity..................unlike some Chavalry units.

9/12L deployed as a ground holding BG on Telic 7, they did a bit of everything in the end. Deployed a Sqn Gp to Maysan in FR role, patrolled in ground holding role and did a bit of other stuff too.

It ain't hard really, proves that the British Army is flexible and capable of many things.

QDG have also done a bit of SSR/Ground holding too I believe.

YANTO, I wouldn't call Muthanna 'LRDG type stuff' as I haven't heard of any Luftwaffe Airfields going up in smoke or Afrika Korps fuel columns being attacked ;)
I think we call it Ground Holding nowadays :)

QRH have been dismounted right through Telic 8 as were the SDG before them. They've still got their panzers and still maintain and train but they're no out of barracks on them very often.

"As I peered into the heat shimmer I saw an image approach. As it got nearer, and took up form I realised that it was the SSM and morale was about to leave" Head and arse down "paveway". The beer is still cold in the 'diff. See you soon.

"Holding ground" is only done at Kiwi's and the Caroline Street chippie at 3am on a Sunday morning!!!!
