FINGAL and HERRICK

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Danny_Dravot, Dec 5, 2006.

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 reviewing a current document and its referring to both FINGAL and HERRICK.

    I assumed FINGAL had been absorbed into HERRICK, is this not the case?

    Er....ISAF/NATO is the same thing. ISAF is the NATO sponsored mission in Afghanistan. Have a look here:

    My bad.

    I would assume that HERRICK is operations in Helmand/Kandahar and FINGAL is Kabul.
     
  10. FINGAL was the original PRT mission which ran concurrently with JACANA the search and destroy mission. All now subsumed into the overarching Op HERRICK.
