Herrick Deployment Rotations & Campaign Regiments

#1
Morning,

The time is getting closer for Regimental Selection Boards at RMAS. My first choice has been and is the Royal Signals.

I am aware of the changes with campaign signal regiments. Nevertheless, does any know the what regiments / squadrons are supporting Herrick 14 onwards (this will be the date i will be at my unit after yo training.)

I am also aware of 14 EW are pretty much on continual rotation due to their unique role except Herrick 14 as the 3 Commando can provide their own EW function. But do any other regiments on a rotating deployment system?

Forgive me for any wrong information, please clarify if anything is incorrect.

Regards

1 Sig Bde rotate doing split tours of Herrick, 16 Sigs will be going next in February until August, probably followed by 22 Sigs and then 7 Sigs afterwards as that is the general pattern.

Hope this helps.

Units to be deployed aren't secret, they're announced to Parliament and in the media well in advance and all wear a large and colourful collection of scout badges just in case anyone's in any doubt of who they are.

Maybe so, but that doesnt mean we should throw flames on the fire by discussing it on an open site such as this.

Before long, we will be discussing tactics on threads that start in such a manner that some nob jockey has took it upon himself to post, unaware of possible consequences.

If you want to know deployment stuff and so on, ask your chain of command etc.

If you can be bothered looking, you can find the entire ORBAT for each roulemont, what training those units are doing before they deploy and when those units deploy. All open source and unlikely to seriously stretch the Taleban's intelligence network. Even the Int Corps could probably come close to reporting who was deploying and when.

I'm all for keeping things that should be secret secret, but who's deploying where, outside of SF, hasn't been a secret for a long, long time.

Discuss - You are a cock!


To mention that a unit is likely to be deployed is like saying the sky is blue.
I have not given out specific dates, flight times, pax details. I simply speculated that the possible deployment maybe as I stated. If I had bothered to look into it properly I would have been able to give a correct answer.

As jimmys_best_mate said, it's all open source information. So much so it's openly publicised on wikipedia! - WIKI!!!

OPSEC is one thing, being a bellend is another. PM me if you wish to 'discuss'

Do the taliban really care who is in theatre? A dead soldier is a dead soldier to them no matter what cap badge he's wearing or country he stems from. They know rough estimates of troops deployed and it's no secret another 37.000 are deploying early next year.

Fine, have it your way - make it as easy as possible for everyone to know whos coming and going, why dont you post all the links on bilboards as well just so everyone has access to it.

As for PM ing you l cant be arrsed as l have better things to do with my time than argue with idiots.

We will agree to disagree.

Everybody does have access to it already, it's published on the MOD's website! Do you really think it's beyond the wit of the Taleban's intelligence network to bookmark a website and have a look at it every so often?

Your damned right, its about time people on board started taking opsec seriously, if Hitler and his cronies find out that Captain Mainwaring and mad ferret have only one gun between them we're doomed i tell you.

I can see your point, but you'd be surprised how much information is online on official websites mostly on MOD websites... 8)

Edit woops somebody beat me to it :x

Actually remember the 2 journo's captured in Iraq, the woman spoke arabic and was eastern and no harm came to her, and the guy was Canadian(the single element that saved his life more than once, as well as not speaking english) at one point he came across one of the Taliban who's brother was canadian in one of the encounters which brought him slightly more merry treatment.

We will not agree to disagree, basically you have been proved an arrse and are wrong on this occasion.

If there was an OPSEC breach on this thread then I am pretty certain that the mods would delete it. But all we have done is point out information that the MOD has already made openly available to anyone you wishes to see it.

As for your 'l have better things to do with my time than argue with idiots' remark, show's that you realise that your a mong, that you have been shown up as a mong and cannot construct a comeback so shrink away from the subject instead.

If you want to explain to me why you think otherwise i'm open to any comments. If not - bore off you fucktard!

OK, so we are in the Military and WE know where the links are. Most civilians do not,and those that wish to know, ask yourself why would they want to know?

What l am trying to highlight here is that in a completely open public forum such as this, why display our intentions so openly? We are giving those that wish us harm a helping hand in effect of finding information, and reference the comment about 'the Taliban dont care who comes' may l also offer into the equation that security also affects those left behind - wives, kids, families of those deployed. Those areas can be targeted as weak spots.

Just because we can display info, doesnt mean we should. If you cant see that beyond your own self importance then my friends you blatantly need to wake up and smell the coffee, as opposed to acting like children and being abusive.

So your saying that the Taliban will think, lets look at Arrse not the MOD website and find out all their defence secrets. Lets not tell the troops where they are going, so they dont tell their mums, then the taliban are fucked arent they :roll:

Id add more, but lets face it, it will be way over your head.
