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. basically my unit are being sent on herrick 15 but i wont arrive there till end of august
    what is the chance of me joining them on tour at any point? i was thinking rear party is likely

    how would i improve my chance of getting on tour with them?

    and if i dont what will i do if there all away on tour

    any advice is welcome especially from the lads at 35 engineer regiment
  2. I can't say for certain but I know that on HERRICK 8 the Paras were sending guys straight for ITC Catterick to Lydd on OPTAG and then straight out on tour. As to if you end up deploying a lot depends on your trade and how far into the tour 35 are when you turn up. If you do end up on rear party expect to be working on the vehicles making sure they are taskworthy when the regiment comes back and plenty of shit jobs!
  3. contact the CC of your future Sqn at 35 ER perhaps????

    I suspect that your chances of deploying are related to the title of your thread. Your future unit has been training for its tour for about a year already, so unless you really have a skill that is needed mid tour you will sit it out in sunny Paderborn.
