Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Theres a set piece phrase for the purpose of battle procedure along the lines:

    To launch the front line soldier into battle, knowing what to do, by when, with what....

    Can anybody tell me the exact wording or where to find it?
     
  2. Here you go:

    Battle Procedure - Aim

    To launch soldier into battle so that he knows:-
    What he has to do.
    How he’s going to do it.
    Without waste of time.
    What Fire Support he’s going to get.
     
  3. yep, thats the jist but not it exactly
     
  4. How does this sound, straight from the Pam:

    'Battle procedure consists of those procedures to be followed when preparing for tactical operations. The object of Battle procedure is to ensure, by concurrent activity, that the time available to prepare for battle is used efficiently so that the troops are properly prepared and briefed'

    Any use?
     
  5. From a Brecon powerpoint.

    The aim of Battle Procedure is to ensure that the front line soldier is launched into battle, without waste of time and with minimum fuss, knowing exactly what he has to do, how he is going to do it, and what fire support he is going to get
     
  6. and during said battle, when the enemy oblige by facilitating groups of eight men attacking them with flanking manoevers, during the battle there is that bit called "battle appreciation" when the commander can sit back, light a smoke and relect "hmm this is rather a good battle"

    as far as I recall....
