Hi, I've recently joined the TA (75 Eng) from the RMR and I've been told I can mobilise for Herrick 17, which I want to do. As a TA sapper out in Afghanistan does anyone know what my day to day duties would be? One thing in particular I would like to know is would I be expected to go out on patrols with the infantry and if not could I volunteer to do so? Or would I be behind the wire well away from the action, doing standard engineer work like construction etc? Also how do the regs view TA soldiers in Afghanistan? Thanks in advance.
