PWRR Afghan 2011?

#1
I heard that PWRR are supposed to be deployed to Afghan in 2011 and I'm hoping to get into 2PWRR (pass out is end of Aug 11), any chance I'll see any of this?

Thanks mate I thought 2PWRR were on woolwich/germany/cyprus rotation too but a couple of guys had mentioned something totally different, no doubt total ****.

They are on the rotation you mentioned but that does not rule out deploying on Herrick. I am not sure what their Operational commitments are but I know 2RRF deployed on Op Herrick 10 from London District (Public Duties). 2PWRR took over from 2RRF in London.

2 RRF got fastballed when they were in Hounslow, and there are rumours of an Afghan tour next year but nothing confirmed.
They'll definately be back out there once their back in Cyprus, but thats another 3 years away yet, and with Afghan being as dynamic as it is alot could change during that period.
If your off to 2 PWRR you've made a good choice, good battalion, refurbed camp, mega bunch of lads albeit alittle bit thredders with Public Duties, however it only fuels their appetite for Central London p*ss ups.
Good luck

According to the Regimental Journal 1 is off to Herrick 15, 2 has a trip to Falklands soon then is off to Germany with a visit during that time.

It's the 1st team that go in 2011

The Reg Journal also gave a hint that 1PWRR might well re-role to light infantry post the Herrick tour. I'm down in the Smoke at the end of the month on work, and just looked up the public duties list, to see if I could wangle it to see the 2nd mount guard @ Buck House - fat chance, they dont appear anywhere for Dec/Jan, so I take it they are topping up the tan in FI? But if that so, it goes against the norm of company rotations and not whole battalion movement.

2 will form the nucleus for the Olympic support over the summer and as this is going to be very high profile I would think they will be doing a lot of prep training.
