Duties of a section 2ic

Hi, currently away on ops and the sqn have decided to run a pre cadre while we are out here, just been spammed to teach the above tomorrow and although I can get the majority across off the cuff, I would prefer to make sure I've got it right. Got no access to any pams or the intranet currently, so any lessons plans etc would be greatly appreciated.



Secretary to the section IC, take the admin burden off him, you do the following

Ammo State
Build Models 2 General View and Detailed View
Warning orders for the section
Batteries and C Sups
Radio and CEI
Basic Medical
Maintain Infrastructure of the Patrol Harbour Area
Step Up 1

Patrol 2ic
Fire team/Link Man
Ammo and Med
Check Nav
Set up Trip Flares once back in
Step Up 1

Thats as far as I can remember hope that helps, there is tons more it is not set in stone and is down to USOP
Making sure your Section aren't admin vortexes!
Fair few REMFY answers there.

Dave's advice is good.

A 2IC's duties are far more important than "milk 2 sugars"

As a 2IC it is your responsibility for the admin upkeep of your section. This means liasing with both the Platoon Sergeant and Section Commander. Making sure your blokes are carrying the correct equipment and ammuntion right down to making sure they put there warm kit on in the FRV or Ambush.

The list is probaly endless to an extent. However from my experience I would say the two most important things are, the maintanance and being able to step up to section commander.

The duties are listed para style in PAM 3, so if and when you can get your hands on it, it may be worth a look.

Good luck.
