so will the FP coy at BAS no longer be a TA task?

Been a couple of times already, not in any rush to get a hat-trick.

No ta. I'd do Afghanistan if I could get back in. Am looking at doing this at present. Clearly, I understand that one doesn't get a choice......

Really?

They've offered me the choice, after finishing training... Where, when, and (to some extent) for how long.

Is that trade specific?

No, seriously. They said, "start thinking about when you can go... for example, if Iraq in the summer's not good for you, you tell us when you can go, where you'd like to, and we'll fit you in".

Now, they may have been WAHing me... but I hadn't thought of that! ;)

Why not try a nice holiday in many of the countries around the world where the curbs don't explode.
It's a good point well made. The simple answer I suppose is that I think it's something I should do.

I'm looking at trying to get back in and go on a tour. There are a lot of big questions that I have to ask myself, some practical, some philosophical. I'll post it all up soon.

Don't feel compelled to hound me in the meantime.

Cheers,

So far this year I have been warned off for 3 different deployments, one to Iraq, and two to Afghanistan, Kabul and Helmand each with different units TA and Regular. And i'm still kicking about for a post to come up. So it is not a definate anymore that you will get mobilised.....

I can confirm that loggies are very short handed at the moment, and I have heard that medic's are also in demand (dont know if that is true or not though)
 
#16
Signals have very few opportunities to be employed in trade, im going out with the artillery in a "dismounted role".

Engineers, some loggies and int seem to be busy
