British Soldiers in Afghanistan – Operation HERRICK 18

Once the soldiers from the 1st Mechanized Brigade arrive in Afghanistan, they undertake up to 7 days of in-theatre, training known as 'Reception Staging and Onward Integration'. RSOI is a system designed to help train, acclimatise and move soldiers to their deployed locations in Helmand. Topics covered during the training are counter-IED, health issues, cultural awareness and a host of other subjects. The training is long and tiring but is the best training prior to the experiences the soldiers are likely to face whilst on tour.
