They're deployed in various roles. From Bomb Disposal, Medics, Drivers, Stores, Helicopter flying, Jet flying (plus their support crews) Policing, the list goes on

Depends on their trade. You got all sorts going out from Medics, Logistics, Weapon Engineers, Air Engineers, Marine Engineers.

There's two teams of STC doing their specialist role as well.

With * of them in theatre, this leaves only about * in reserve for other duties, including *. Good luck to the lads; best of luck trying to get the * MkII to work this time!

Have we got another boyo joining the Navy in the hope of not going to Afghanistan? Personally, I'd welcome it. It's exciting, it's a new part of the world, it's risky, unconquered and scary. Naturally, I don't want to die, but as a potential member of the armed forces I should warn you that there is clear and present danger at all times.

Would HM have any involvement?
I don't think the Queen will be going, no doubt that she would be willing, God Bless Her, but age is against her.
Haha, very good.

I'm not bothered if I go at all, I was just wondering that things they did over there. I kind of what to go.

Am I correct in assuming that this excludes officers?

Possibly in the MET role, they still need weather forecasts in theatre. I'm not 100% sure if RN mets are out there but I can't see why not.
Yes, they are. I know that, not long ago, the Chief Meteorologist at Kandahar Airfield was a RN Lt Cdr.

I gather that the meteorologists are especially useful to helicopter crews out there, as they can forecast dust and sandstorms, which affect flying.

Sorry, emotions are running high. After seeing Warthog de-badged and then kicked out the RN due to gash opsec I wouldn't want to see the same thing happen to you.

It's a lesson to us all I guess.
