CIED ground appreciation

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Emma Louise, Jun 19, 2013.

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. Thinking about MATT 9, what are the main points to consider when doing a ground appreciation?

    For example ground sign, absence of the normal, etc.

    Is there a trusty mnemonic?

    Is there any particular order in which the various points should be covered?

    Thanks
     
  2. The internet really isn't the best place to ask about Restricted information.
     
  3. There is a MATT 9 instructors course - suggest that's a good start!

    Generally if there's a sign with 'Mines' written on it I stay well clear.

    Large smoking holes, scorched clothing and a nasty mess on the floor are all strong combat indicators.

  6. I suspect that the ability to think and plan ahead are very important. That's probably a good starting point for you to work on.
     
  7. ... avoid mines?

    GSMESC was fondly remembered as Gay Sgt Majors enjoy sucking cock.

    PBBTDSC was less well known but just as relevant: Particularly Bravo Bravo the Dirty Stab **** :D

    Standby for PMs from people asking for light relief using your mouth and bottom.
     
  14. The nmemonic is something S.M.A.S.H.H.E.R.B.A.C.K.D.O.O.R.S.I.N

    I can't for the life of me think what all the letters mean
