'G' Filing

Anybody tell me if there is a web site where I can see all the NATO format filing letter/number combinations and there contents?

One version that came from the ATRA Portal: http://www.atranet.dii.r.mil.uk/Structure/Atra_Hand_Book/index.htm

G1 Personnel
G2 Intelligence and Security
G3 Operations, O&D and Training
G4 Service Support
G5 Civil Affairs and Public Relations
G6 Communications and MIS
G7 Future Development
G8 Plans, Resources and Finance
G9 Civilian Management and Budgets

This is obviously only a top level view, but should help you to get started.
And "G10" is where you keep all the kit :lol:
As at Sep 04.

In place for all LAND units.

G1 – Personnel and Administration
G2 – Intelligence and Security
G3 – Operations
G4 – Logistics
G5 – Plans and Policy
G6 – Communications and Information Systems
G7 – Doctrine and Training
G8 – Resources and Finances
G9 – Civil Military Cooperation (CIMIC)

Apart from the obvious differences (G3 Trg is absorbed into G7, along with Force Dev and doctrine, etc etc), the other main change is that every staff officer will only have one piece of branch nomenclature i.e. SO2 G1, SO1 G4 Log/Plans, SO2 G6 IM etc etc.
There is also the "J" for Joint 8)
Grumpy, be aware that our nomenclature contains several exceptions from the STANAGs, particularly in the G1 area.

With regard to GP3's unusually pointless post, you can indeed prefix 'J' for 'Joint' operations, but I assumed that by asking on ARRSE, you wanted a peculiarly Army spin. For the record, you could also affix 'A' for Air Operations and 'N' for our bell-bottomed chums. :D

Point taken - should have elaborated like your goodself - I shall now return to my Bunny Hole :oops:
Ducati is quite right - you could try NATO Site and type 'Staff Branch nomenclature' into the Search Engine.

I did, and got loads of info about 'Solid State Chemistry' in Novosibirsk! I wonder if the same IT geeks were responsible for the Defence Intranet? :D
Many thanks, just what the Dr ordered :lol:
