Saw a leaflet in the TA Centre yesterday saying the following:
697 (K) Sig Tp will form in August 2007 to train for and deploy to Kosovo as the United Kingdom National Support Component Signals Troop, providing communications for Operation OCULUS. Volunteers are now required.
There are key dates in the leaflet, including:
13-15 Jul 07 - Selection Weekend.
20-31 Aug - Mobilisation.
Hey Polar I see you are still on here talking carp about stuff you know nowt about!!
The Sig troop is going ahead, it is being led by 37 sigs it is open to all regt's in either bde. the start of the tour will be Nov 06. There are no plans to endex the tour yet it will prob go on for about another two years or so. Bosnia has closed down though.
If anyone is lookin for anything else, have a look on the army web site, serving soldier, then mobilisation oportunities, they have all vacancies to be filled by T.A whether it is NRPS, FTRS or just mobilisation. For example they are looking for R.Sigs to do a job in Kenya for 6 months.
You should try a tour polar you might get some real experience and be better for it!!
