Can't remember the textbook definitions, but roughly:

G1 personnel and manning
G2 security and intelligence
G3 trg and operations
G4 admin
G5 civil/military relations and media

J prefix is for joint service operations - normally div + level.

I have seen J6-J9 but have no idea what they were

G1 – Personnel matters.
G2 – Int and Security.
G3 – Operations and Training.
G4 – Equipment and Logistics support.
G5 – Civil and military Cooperation.

Joint Environment

G6/J6 – Comms and IT
G7/J7 – Doctrine
G8/J8 – Forward Operational plans.

(taken directly from my mil knowledge exam q card!!)

G6 is IT..... computers and the like.

Once had a Dutch officer come into the headquarters looking for G6, only he asked for 'Gay Sex' :?

Ha ha..... a bit like a jock staffy we had on an exchange down with the yanks at Spengdahlen. He nearly gave one of the yank 'Gunny' like instructors a heart attack during a cigarette break when he asked "Where can I put my fag butt?" Poor bugger nearly broke his jaw on the floor :lol: :lol: :lol:

Doesn't this question prove what an error it was to go whoring after the Spam staff branch designations when we had our own very clear and very British system of G, A and Q branches?

Who wouldn't rejoice in the title 'Deputy Assistant Adjutant and Quarter-Master General'? The fact that other nations had no idea what we were talking about was an advantage, in my humble opinion.

Not 100% sure it has actually been brought online as of now, but 100% sure it is changing v soon. The old CIMIC is now one of the G7-G9. Will find out and get back to you soonest polar.

J = Joint - a tri=service Staff appt
G = General - an Army staff appt
N = Naval - a Navy staff appt (no kidding)
A = Air -an RAF staff appt

You will also see CJ for Combined Joint, or lots of different peoples' purple organisations all ganging up together. This is not the same as CJMN - which is lots of other countries' purples organisations all joining up. Still with me...

I have amended Murielson's excellent post with the latest thinking from Puzzle Palace - and yes, it is to 'harmonise operational capability'. Or something.

This is why you now see weird nomenclature like SO3 J3/J7. Easy when you know the lingo, I guess! :D
