21 SAS

Herry had enjoyed the corps at Winchester and shortly after joining Millers, Herry also joined the TA - 21 SAS - which was then based at the Duke of York's Barracks on the King's Road. He had a marvellous time training at weekends on 'The Fan' (Pen-y-Fan') in the Brecon Beacons and on the moors outside Newcastle. He took the selection course in 1970 and was 'Best Recruit' in his year. Subsequently he went on a number of training courses, including becoming a parachutist.

As his travelling for Millers increased, he had to give up the TA in 1972, though he remains a member of the Artists Rifles.
