Hi all,

I wanted to report something a little odd thats been going on all day. I live in Hereford in the UK, about a mile and a half from the S.A.S. camp. Normally the base is very quiet with no major activity; the odd cars coming and going as you'd expect.

All day (and night) today however there have been constant convoys of upwards of 10 Land Rovers / Covered Lorry's going in and out of the base along with 6 Chinook helicopters flying a loose formation regularly across town.

I have lived in Hereford all my life and I can say I have NEVER seen anything like this from the S.A.S camp.

Wonder what's up??

Sounds interesting. Maybe they are off to do some behind the lines work in the middle east 'somewhere'. Although they have probably been doing that already, so it's odd that you have seen a massive increase. Did you notice any difference during the build up to the last iraq war, or any other missions?

Maybe you should add (SAS HQ) to your topic title, I'm guessing only some of us brits know why hereford is significant.

Thanks for your response, if I remember rightly there was some increase just before the Iraq war, but not on this scale. As I was saying I have never seen such a large amount of activity in such a short period from the camp.

Since I originally posted this message more trucks have driven past my house (I live on one of the major roads in and out of town).

I'll keep you all posted on whatever (if anything) further happens.

Another update - 2 more choppers overhead.

I know what you mean about them not sounding like a commercial aircraft. I'm sure you've seen/heard Chinooks, they have a very heavy sound, much deeper than that of a traditional helicopter design.

I do have a video camera - I'll charge the battery tomrrow (its 11:54pm here). Hopefully things will continue tomorrow!

Sorry if I seem like I am spamming; another two choppers - definately going in the direction of the SAS camp. My Camera is setup for the next set of choppers.

Sorry, I meant Digital Camera


I got a couple of pics but they are slow shutter so are just a few dots of light


I'll take my camera to work tomorrow - I get a good view of all of hereford from my office so if there are any more I should get some decent pictures!

My father was in the regiment for many years and came and went for up to 9 months at a time. Borneo, Oman, Aden, States etc.

What i know is this. Movements will often be at night or dusk. Indeed, i see choppers regularly going into the SAS base at Credenhill so it is a little odd that you have not noticed before. All usually at dusk or later and they will traverse away from the camp in an arc and then in.

There are many reasons for movements. They are not just serving in Iraq or Afganistan. They train all over the world with other special forces (Navy Seals) and are constantly covert. Who knows some are probably in columbia or Africa and they are most certainly still in Ireland.

Hope this helps Jicks

This thread seems like an attention seeking fake- IIRC the SAS are not at Hereford anymore and haven't been for some years now.

Well i for one wouldn't wanna be caught taking pictures of the SAS...

They're the toughest men in the world and wouldn't want them confiscating my camera.

Be careful... Besides it could compromise national security etc

I haven't been keeping up on the likelihood of attacking Iran recently.

Israel may feel they need to do it sooner than later i they have to more or les go it alone with OThuga being such an opposition to their existence.

I would sure prefer that they hold off on 'festivities' as long as possible.

Sigh.

Will end up in wholesale WWIII I think, WHEN it blows . . . not IF . . . WHEN.

Didn't they just move from to another base only a couple of miles away from the previous one?

I thought it was more like 100 odd miles away, near to Brize Norton?
