    They are little cards that are used to give speeches and used in debates. You write abridged notes on them.
    It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

        im not doing the course a mate is , im helping him get some gear together .
        on a related note he was told he "has" to bring a bivvy bag. surely he should only have to bring what hes been issued and not kit like that. i was with him tonight in the hut when he rang quering it and he was told he had to have it .

          If he has to have it then it should be issued.

              The policy up our direction is not to issue out the stuff unless it's a complete sleeping system, i.e; sleeping bag, basha, bivvy bag, kip mat, as detailed by the lads above...

                it's actually called a 'cue' card to give the speaker cues for his speech, the phonetics messed you up.

                Another one that often causes hilarity, is a 'talc'. if anyone can tell me where the military meaning came from, I'd be grateful.

                  Google not being friendly to ya then?

                  I'm guessing that if it's a military term (which I've never heard before, TBH)
                  then it's probably an acronym for something...

                  Suggestions on the back of a 3 euro note to Trellheim....

                      Ollie, get your friend to put in writing a request for the gear he needs and get it to his Coy Comdr, Coy 2IC, CQMS and Cadre CQMS. If he can't get the gear go on the course anyway.

                      Truck driver, you only get the gear if the PDF want you to have it.

                          Disagree with that philosophy, Murph.

                          If we did that all the time, we'd get sod all. If the instructions say bring (a),(b),(c), then they should be issued. Agree with Dev, get documented proof that he tried to get this gear through the relevant channels. Not his fault if his Cadre won't get off their posteriors and get the stuff for him. Not lashing the Cadre BTW, some of them are great, some are wasters - like in all walks of life, really...

                              I just got pissed off turning up with rubbish kit..and been told things were not available to the RDf and that joining instructions were in a standard format..taken from the PDF...if you think you are going to get something just because some else says you need it..you are on a road to no where. If you are going to have your own comfort in your own hands well, best not depend on others to supply it.

                              IMO if you need stuff and the army ain't supplying you go out and get it..depends on your own circumstances and how much you are willing to put up with..me I just drew the line after the first of the southern brigades PSOs and said never again would I be lacking in what I percieved to need for my own welfare

                              But then again every one to their own....depends on what you do ..and where you do it..some may not need so much kit as their job dosen't require it..but I so much hated having to rely on a faulty system
