I found a stash of them in a our unit library (glorified broom cupboard where all PAM ammendments/CD roms and SSVC videos go to die). They are mostly out of date, ie 2000/2001 issue. but seeing as most of the info on them is never updated, it doesnt really matter.

Ask your training WO or PSI if you are a TAer.

Units should get a couple each year (September time) which you can pass on.

DGD&D (AO Publications) can supply more copies if you need them. Sept 2001 to Sept 2002 is the latest I've seen.

Ask your PSI for one, rather than the PSAO then...

Ahh I see you are a Yeoman and per chance Irish, we are of similar breed.

The newest Electronic Battle Box is from January 2003 I think. It has everything from TAMs to whatever. If you are in the RAC it also has for the first time the RAC TAM insert on disk - useful for me in Armoured Formation Recce.

The lastest one I have seen is Jan 2003 Edition 6, it has quite a few updates/new publications.
Went in tonight to discover Jan 2004 Edition 7 had arrived at the unit, but many fewer copies (five) than arrived of Edition 6 (lots). Now a 7-CD set in a cute box, not the "two CDs in a jewel case" of its predecessor........

In case it's of interest, here's "something I prepared earlier", slightly amended for presentation online. I don't think that the list of publications itself is restricted - if anyone disagrees, please feel free have the posting deleted (I'm on a course for the next few weeks, so won't be able to myself).

THE BRITISH ARMY ELECTRONIC BATTLE BOX

INTRODUCTION

1. The British Army Electronic Battle Box (The ‘Battle Box’) consists of, primarily, the published output of the Directorate General of Development and Doctrine (DGD&D) and the Arms and Service Directorates (A&SD). A number of relevant publications are also included from other sources, such as the Joint Doctrine and Concepts Centre (JDCC), NATO and ABCA. This makes it an invaluable source of reference for units and formations that may be unsure about the amendment status of their publications. In addition, the Battle Box website contains all the individual amendments to DGD&D publications and some from the Arms and Services, allowing users to print them off and update their paper copies.

2. The intention is to produce an operational reference library or 'electronic battle box' containing every operational publication of an All-Arms nature, thereby reducing the volume of paper which has to be taken on deployment. While electronic documents can never completely take the place of paper versions, they do present opportunities for some reduction in conventional printing, and provide up-to-date information (hard copies are frequently not updated).

DISTRIBUTION

3. The Battle Box is distributed in two ways:

  • a. Website. Available over the RLI, this site will continue to develop with the publication of new documents and any amendments. This site is now the authority for all published documents and the latest versions and any amendments will be published here. The address is:
    http://www.asei.mod.uk/baebb/baebb7/nav/MAIN.htm Note: This is an RLI (Restrcted LAN Interconnect) address, accessible on the military network only.

    b. CD-ROM Set. The Electronic Battle Box CD-ROM set will continue to be published annually as a snapshot of the information held on the website. Edition 7 is the current version, and covers the period Jan - Dec 04. It is intended that the CD-ROM will continue to be produced in large numbers for the foreseeable future. However, with the growth in defence IT network connectivity, it is eventually hoped to scale down CD-ROM production as documents are placed on a central web-server. This will allow greater access to the most up to date versions.
PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE CD-ROM SET

4. Edition 7 of the Battle Box CD set replaces Edition 6 of the CD-ROM, and contain 7 discs. The production run produced 2000 sets of 7 disks for distribution to major units, formations, some HQs and a variety of training establishments. Additional single disks will be produced and will be available on demand from AO Publications, DGD&D. Queries regarding the scaling, distribution and requests for additional copies of the CD-ROM should be directed to AO Publications DGD&D, Mrs G Williams: Note: Some contact info deleted for internet online version of this document.

  • a. Wednesdays. Tel: 94344 5057. Fax: 94344 5202.

    b. CASH E-mail. DGDD-DOC AO PUBS.

SUMMARY

7. The British Army Electronic Battle Box is a tremendously useful resource. Officers and SNCOs should be familiar with it, in order that they are aware what information is available to assist them during courses, training and operations.

You could go and ask young subbies that are due to take on JOTAC/JOTES as they have one sent to them for revision..

:D

Ask anyone who has been anywhere near sandhurst recently, as they seem to be trying to get rid of them there! Personally I was given two from different departments, and didnt have to sign anything to get them. They are marked restricted, but that doesnt seem to bother anyone.
