Evening all, Firstly, although this is my first post I am an avid reader of arrse and enjoy, not only the banter, but the serious and useful advice provided on this forum by people who are often in the know. I'm a TA YO currently looking to transfer to an alternative TA Regiment in the South Wales area. I'm booked into the Regular CC course starting Jan '14, and wish to spend my intermediate time in the TA getting as involved as possible (mostly for the beer tokens!). However, one aspiration of mine would be to get onto OP Herrick, and with the recent announcement of who goes I noticed that 5 MI and 104 RA are both deploying from my area. I ask on here before I ask the Regiments themselves purely as it would be a bit ridiculous to simply cold call on these Regiments expecting answers to this question. My query is (and I have already googled, and asked my PSI before we begin that game), what would be the likely possibilities of deploying as a YO with either of the above Regiments? Civilian employment would not intefer and I could commit to all the mentioned training, however I would nto want to postpone my Regular Sandhurst intake without some sort of durable offer on the table from a Regiment, and am imply asking how best to go about this. Cheers all!
