    I never said that was all you carry in your smock.
    I offered a suggestion, and I assumed that your previous post "Survive (cant spell) from your smock" covered food.
    You'd be surprised that most soldiers are intelligent enough to understand...... Why cant you? :p

    TM 201 sets out what you should have in your smock, check the appendices

    Failing that download the Connect poster on Admin in the Field <b>here</b>

    true, it does, but as GF said if you've got a second smock for those hot summer nights ...

    TM201 is getting on a bit now but that appendix is damn useful .


    yer KFS can go in a pocket or hang a spoon round your neck

    My leatherman normally goes in the compass pocket , tac aide on the inside zip

    kfs and maglite , ziplocked lighter and fags in the pockets, peltor and small mapcase w/compass tied on inside in left pocket, field dressing in field dressing pocket

    I find I can't move fast with anything more than the map in the trous

    the rest is a good balance between what's needed and wanted.

    <font face="tahoma" color="#ff9900">Annex C to TM201 Manual of Infantry Pl and Section Tactics.

    Ask your NCO for a copy.

    A recent copy of Connect had a massive Poster on admin in the Field.

    Would my NCO give me annex C?
    Another question why are we (average grunt) not given these manuals?
    surely we could find them as useful as the NCO's and PNCO's do

    If I asked my NCO could he give me a copy of TM201?

    No. It is not necessary for each person in a company to have a copy of the manual. Once the NCO's have a copy of it, and plan their lessons with the manual. I am guessing you have never seen TM201. Its huge, not very cost effective to give 1 copy to everybody.

    Would it not be easier for everyone involved if one of the NCO's on this site sent you a copy of it by email?

    Any NCO doing that will be committing an offence of passing on restricted information, and hopefully wouldn't be that stupid.

    Get official information through official channels. This board is certainly not for organising the obtaining of improper information.

    If you are in a proper RDF unit,instructing you on all aspects of fieldcraft should be carried out as a matter of course. TM201 should be instructed as often as weapons training or foot drill.
    The annex that deals with what goes where however should be instructed every time there is a tactical exercise or training imminent. If you have not done this lecture at least once a year,you should transfer. Active units should have the latest update. PDF units that have rotated to Timor, Eritrea or Liberia have returned with modifications to the pattern,and these should be followed where possible.

    Personally I feel it would help if TM201 was made available to privates, if they want it.

    not even the book itself but on CD.

    Remember in school, you always had the text book beside you for your own reference and you still always took notes.

    It would help even at home recapping lessons and knowing the proper precedures.

    Tell me if a asked my NCO for a copy of TM201 would I get a copy, be laughed out of it or both?

    Because Privates are of low intelligence,it is better that they be spoon fed all information. Providing them with a textbook to study could lead to information overload and confusion.


    Fact is TM201 is in short enough supply to NCOs that it would be risky giving it out to privates too. It is also a restricted Publication and rarely if ever should leave the environs of a Barracks.

    That is why you take notes.

    The contents of a smock isn't classified, the manual & annex you asked for is. If you've trouble understanding why the dissemination of classified information is frowned upon then you don't belong here & certainly don't belong in the DF.

    I'd also suggest you try directing any further dissent on the issue to Josh & see where that gets you.
