81mm Mortar B qualification

#2
Is that the CPO course?

Only did section commander, mostly needed beer tokens (needed to wax the voice box after shouting so much)
 
#5
Map and protractor plotting.
Basic maths.
All characteristics of the weapons system and mnemonics. (RSM WANTS MEN, FART, BEACHLOAF) etc

Good luck!

Edited for the right course!

Abs, Firstly you are asking for advice on your PNCO cadre now you are on an 81mm mortar B-qual course?

Is it who ever turns up at your TAC first gets the highest rank?

Or do you work on the rank lottery system?

Yes we do have a rank lottery system its directly linked to the fruit machine in the mess, anyway Skkottt you must have hit the Jackpot when Glasgow lost your records and you suddenly acquired the rank of L/CPL without having to do a PNCO's cadre :wink:

Thats right the C2 sight along with the TLE was found at the gates of Stalingrad.
I read some where that a fully working Stealth fighter was seen 65 miles west of Stalingrad along with a dyson hoover and a Pentum 4 laptop.

I was B coy.
Caught up with a few from B Coy Mortars a few weeks ago, seems like promotion has been a bit static (or I'd met a few that were going nowhere)
Normally catch up with ex A Coy seniors/officers on 15 Bde exercises (not just EWRR the actual HQ itself), on one exercise nearly all of the old C Coy HQ team were there in Bde HQ

3 PWO fought at Stalingrad under the command of SS Leibstandarte, this remained a secret until 1997 that's whey it had to change cap badge.
I heard that too. Serving members can still wear the Iron Cross on rememberance sunday
