That's not a question that you'll get a proper answer to. It all depends on how the situation in Afghanistan goes, how long you're in the corp for, what you specialise in and several other factors.

You can find out from the official website what the RM gets up to when they're not on tour, so have a look there.

And Afghanistan is part of South Asia, not the Middle East.

No worries.

One thing you can be pretty certain of is doing at least one tour there if you pass RT training and get posted to a commando unit. A couple of tours is more likely. But that's what you're joining up for so bring it on eh!
