TAMs will probably not be issued to you until you're on an Advanced Soldier/Potential JNCO cadre, but you can talk to your recruit training NCOs to see if they can let you copy certain pages. Mainly, Orders headings (esp for complex things like Patrols) and stats. TAM is full of useful things like weapon ranges, range cards, NBC markings, water consumption, trench layouts, etc.Halford1 said:smartascarrots, cheers some good info there. as im a lowly nod im not in the position of giving orders and briefings yet, but i will store that away in case the day ever comes!
also, am i in a position to get hold of TAMs throught the system as a recruit? or would i have to wait until im a trained rank (if i survive recruit training) or get it through another channel i.e. proff it?
Hi HalfordHalford1 said:im currently in phase 2 going for my Green lid, so im expecting a slagging for being scum and bootneck scum at that, but hidden in the slagging someone might offer me some help.
im making an aide memoir using one of those A5 green plastic notebooks, so far it contains:
space to take down info under the headings GSMESC
BLANK ROUTE CARDS
BLANK SENTRY LISTS
BLANK RANGE CARD
Any suggestions of what else would be useful to have in there? aside from the latest issue of naked roll mat fighting monthly of course.
also, is the best thing to write on those plastic pages a "lumicolour" brand pen? and how do you get it off? i have heard somthing about using makeup wipes or somthing along those lines.
