    Kaiser if you can look at the organisation of 42 Inf Gp going to Lebanon in November, it'll give you an idea what will go to Syria.

    I wouldn't expect anything else from begrudging, ignorant commentators.

    As regards the vehicles for the mission most if not all will more than likely be redeployed from our unit serving with UNIFIL when that contingent downsizes from a battalion to a company group in november.
    "Let us be clear about three facts:First of all.All battles and all wars are won in the end by the Infantryman.Secondly the Infantryman bears the brunt of the fighting,his casualties are heavier and he suffers greater extremes of fatigue and discomfort than the other arms.Thirdly,the art of the Infantryman is less stereotyped and harder to acquire than that of any other arm".

    Isn't an Inf Gp (eg KFOR or Cyprus) a Bn minus, ie a HQ/Logs Coy, 1x Inf Coy & Sp Coy ?

    Overseas units are organised to suit the mission requirements. No two missions are the same.

    Best of luck to the lads heading to the Golan Heights, that'll be a fruity deployment.

    May they all stay safe and return home unscathed.

    Well if the Examiner is to be believed.

    We are send 114 UNMOs as part of a Mech Inf unit and it is more about Syria than the Israeli/Syrian border.

    The R&C as amended today shows that 43 Inf Gp will have a Coy HQ, 2 x Mech Inf Pl, a Cav Troop, a Tpt section, an MP section, a CIS section, an Ord section and I dont remember seeing it but presumably an Eng and Med sections as well.

    All in for 114 pers.

    There may be some other elements in the logs trail as well but I was not concerned by them at the time so didn't pay attention to them.
