I always thought the 'C' in CEMO and CEFO stood for 'Combat'?
Besides. I'd like to see them fit all of that kit in the tiny bergan. Plus ammo.

Ammo would have been festooned about your person in bandoliers with full mags shoved anywhere and everywhere with a pocket.

I have also seen "CEFO" and "CEMO" with the C as "Combat" on posters and in the PAM for as long as I can remember although I am not that old so it could be a case of chinese whispers that ended up in the training manual over time.

In my time I've seen FO only to mean Fighting Order; MO I've seen as Marching Order and Movement Order.

CE I've seen as Complete Equipment, Combat Equipment and Central European.

What this thread needs is an old QM.

I understood it to mean Central European.
I have a mate who was QM. I'll ask.

Anyway, did any SLR in the Regular Army of 1982 still have wooden furniture?

Yep, ashford training wing 1987 combat. Just send the fiver straight to H4H cheers.

It was Complete. In addition, I do not recall trousers of that era having bellows type pockets (spotter I know); didn't come in until the abysmal 85 pattern.
