Why choose Tosca over Herrick?

Please explain your motives.

For God's sake don't explain your motives! Whatever they are, they will not be noble enough even if you've done 5 previous Telic and Herrick tours and this thread will wind up looking like a 4 year olds colouring in book.

Do you think people in these corps have a choice? Serve in Cyprus or not do a tour at all.
My unit has several on Herrick but I don't recall them being given a choice before that.

I think the whole idea behind the balkans/cyprus deployments was to push up the overall numbers people deploying in some corps (and they didn't need TA IR's on other ops).

Especially when work won't let them have the time off for Herrick....honest.

I have a full list of the people going out to Cyprus however, before I can release it to you I have to contact them all individually to ask them if they know you and if I may release their details to you.

I will also have to as permission from the MOD to release the list to you.

Alternatively you could write to the MOD and ask them direct for the information you need:

One of our (ex-Reg) TA bods asked me who to contact at APC to try & arrange a Tosca Tour to coincide with his return from another OH tour, can anyone pm me Tel No's?

He doesn't want to ask his PSAO as he's a cock!

Cheers in advance

One might well be less dangerous than the other but I doubt Tosca is a holiday. From what people tell me there is just enough time for idiot ruperts to invent new and practice old ways of pissing people off, .

I know no one is going to get killed but the potential for getting truly shafted by a unit that didn't want nasty TA types with them in the first placeseems to be huge.

101 Force Support Bn REME are going Oct 2012.. Been pinged for it as I can't do Herrick due to 'down scaling' with my trade out there...

ok ill start ill start with why I want to know I had put my name forward for Herrick next year but I was'nt selected they said I should try and do a Tosca tour first which I didnt agree with they asked for 75 names in which they got 12 and only 4 got selected cause that makes sense o_o

I am also sick of seing people in my regiment sitting about on there arses and using the unit as a drinking club so I got a few of the lads who wanted Herrick and didnt get it and asked if they wanted to try and get Tosca instead they said yes so here I am trying to find out who is going out next to give the info to my troop staffy.

Op Tesco sounds better than nothing !!

So you are so useless that they would rather gap posts on Herrick than risk taking you?

Yup, get yourself on Op Keo - it sounds like you might have to do a bit of work to get yourself up to the standard though!
