Hey guys, I'm currently serving in the Light Dragoons and we've been warned off for deployment on Op HAVILDAR 4 in April next year. I've served for over 5 years but haven't done an op tour before; I just missed out on the Regiment's deployment on HERRICK 22 and as we all know, opportunities to go on tour have been a been a bit limited since then! The closest I've managed to get so far was doing donkey work for the plod during the Olympics in 2012 lol!! So basically, a few questions for anyone who's been on HAVILDAR already. How long is the flight to Eritrea and, once you get to Amara from Brize, what's the score with getting to Camp Dowler in Teseney from there? Is it airlift or road move or what? Also, I know that that section of border is the responsibility of the BRITFOR, Austrian and Ecudaorian parts of the UN contingent. Are all those national groups based at Camp Dowler or is the base purely British? Is the op stand-down at Gash-Setit Wildlife Reserve something that everyone gets to go on or do you have to be a 'blue eyed boy' lol? Finally, what is the score with accommodation / ablution facilities for males and females on camp? 2 of my AFV crew are girls so this one's a bit close to home, haha! Any tips greatly appreciated guys!
