I thought it was at the co's descretion ours last year was
Apwt or match9 if sustained fire platoon
bcd battlefield casualty drill (the first aid test )
Equipment recognition test
equal opptunity lecture
The important ones are 1 - 5. This is the bit from the CO cert that says what they are. CO may decide that there are others, in order to meet some operational requirement. This should be published in your Regt/Bn training directive for the current year. PSAO will know for sure as he should be the one that produces the bounty paper work for the CO to sign.
Appendix 2 to Annex G to Chapter 2
Commanding Officerâs Certificate of Efficiency
(Para 2.059 Refers)
1. This is to certify that the members of my unit listed on the attached nominal rolls
inclusive, have fulfilled the following
Basic requirements and will be eligible to be paid full training bounty for the
(insert year) training year, subject to completing the required number
of days training by 31 March:
All have been tested in ITDs 1 to 5 and have passed at least
â3â or â2â) of the ITDs listed below. HRR personnel shown on the nominal rolls have passed all 5 ITDs:28
All the above pretty accurate, although the TA should take all ITD(A)s annually with only 1-5 being bounty qualifiers.
From the horse's mouth a CO may not specify a pass at any particular ITD(A) as a bounty qualifier. There is, however, a move afoot to make a pass in fitness mandatory for bounty but this is unlikely to happen until the TA is properly resourced with PTIs so my info is we have until TY 07/08 or 08/09 to get in some running!
Absolutely NOT the case. To do this TA Regs would have to be changed. Until then it is as stated above: attempts at 1-5 with 2 passes (specialist), 3 passes (independent) and pass all (HRR) to qualify for bounty.
There is a move afoot to get a pass at CFT to be mandatory, but this will not be onstream until TY 06/07 at the earliest.
A waste of time, in my day we turned up on Saturday nights let loose a few arrows and sank a kegs of mead......
or I remember when bounty tests pushed you a little, AFV - Tanks displayed on a screen twice their normal size, a fitness test that left you out of breath (BFT), medical test that you had to remember not read out of an aide-memoire, then boring lectures (H&S, Law of Armed conflict, Equal Oppurtunities, drugs misuse) repeated every few months.
I mean I wasn't going to rape an enemy female or take drugs b4 the lecture and nothing during the same old shitty video would of made me or the drug smoking pedo change our minds.
Is me or has part of the Army turned into a poor version of Blue Peter, except Blue Peter tried to educate but the Army aims its vids at Chavs
