What is an operational tour???

#1
With a similar theme to my last post, what is an operantional tour?
I see some medics have been across on Herrick and there's an obvious one! I have some mates out in Afgan (TA) and their jobs are secure because legally they have to be kept secure.
However, less obvious to me is whether as a member of the RNR i would be able to deploy for example East of Suez on what appears to be anti-pirate and anti-drug smuggling operations (Similar to what Cornwall, Cumberland and Portland have just done) without worrying about my job????
Im pretty sure the fire service (my regular job) wouldnt release me for an ex like Taurus 09 but the above mentioned???
Again all answers (sensible and childish) appreciated.
Cheers

Would the Union allow you to go?

Couldn't you go when next on strike? You could go in place of the Servicemen that have to do your job in the UK.

If you're compulsory mobilised then the protections of the act apply, you're employer can appeal, but if that is rejected they can't stop you going, and your job is protected.

Not only can you be mobilised for operations such as the anti-piracy Op off Africa that you mention, you could also be mobilised to service here in the UK in support of Ops abroad. What you cannot be mobilised for under RFA96 is any operations in the UK for the protection of life or property unless there is a disaster or apprehended disaster. This mean reservists cannot be used for strike breaking in the UK.

cheers partimer. So i should be able to ask to be mobilised then and may stand a chance of gettin involved with the anti-piracy stuff?
Thnx again
You usually have some idea of what's coming up. Whether the RN chose to mobilise you or not depends on many factors. This can get very sensitive so I will PM you.

I'll have a word with my mates Pugwash and Sparrow, and make sure they're operating in your areas when you're on deployment, feckin' glory-hunting, medal-seeking wannabe... :roll:
