Volounteered for an operational tour.

I recently volounteered to go on a force protection tour on Op Herrick.
What sort of duties should i be expecting to do?

I originally posted this on the TA forum but was recommended to put it on here too.

Cheers

2 patrols a day and taking on QRF roles quite often when not patroling. That's what my friends are doing right now, and they are the only Royal Engineers doing force protection. Surprised if you get it though, because there is no spaces, unless this is for Herrick 8.

miles and miles and miles of filling Hescobastion with desert rubble and sand. Constructing sanger packs and building Culpro etc etc + stagging on lots and lots.

Have fun and keep yer head down

A few of 7 & 16 Sigs did this on the ARRC tour.

Loads of foot patrols and top cover as someone has already posted.
