That tells you training to get in.

That tells you the roles of the squadrons, where they have been, where they're going...

The first I knew because I'm also looking to join QRL myself(but because I was in the army have armynet, but don't worry there's, not much in there on QRL), the second came from typing in www.google.com "Queens Royal Lancers". :wink:

They do alot of "Close Target Recce"(CTR) as that's really their job role. That I got from somebody who did that role who's left and on a security forum. So I guess expect to do some CTR? :)

In Iraq they patrolled the border looking for sneaky buggers trying to cross from Iran and people hiding weapons caches, using landrovers and scimitars...

In operational area..get hot, get shot at. Drive around a lot and get hotter and shot at again. Do they or have they done Inf type roles, yes, though not in AF at the moment.
