Internet Monitoring on Herrick

#1
A quick question as I'm deploying soon. Is there any chance on HERRICK to get onto the internet from your own computer and are internet communications monitored? TIA.

Bastion is monitored. Couple of lads were investigated and charged because they were posting details of a pending Op. The Op was obviously cancelled. You will not be able to receive ARRSE in theatre.

You could get it on Herrick 12. At the start the pages wouldnt load, I sent an Email to Paradigm but they said they weren't blocking it. Then when the site got upgraded, it loaded up fine.

It's not monitored. They posted the details on facebook and someone from their unit grassed them up. Doesn't mean someone is sat there looking at what everyone is posting on the internet.

We had one of our AH drivers asked to take a visit via RMP because of documentation on his computer, all restricted info was removed. He was informed there is an Ops duty of care to maintain overwatch.

Doesn't prove someone was watching what he was posting on the internet. It just proves someone knew he had restricted stuff on his laptop.

Think of the logistics of monitoring all the internet traffic coming out of Bastion - never mind the stuff from the FOBs as well.

I would imagine it's the same rules as the sat phones. You may be monitored - but the simple rule is: don't post operational details on Facebook / Twitter / Myspace etc. If you wouldn't tell it to the Afghan bloke working for KBR, don't put it on the net.

Re you PM, I checked with the powers that be and they say you'll be ok to log on to

barebackedloverboys.com and allmalebukkake.org so stop worrying.

Used ARRSE with no probs in theatre, depends where you are though as bandwith will vary depending on site.
