Junior officers guide

#1
I'm looking for an electronic version of The Queen's Commission: A Junior Officer's Guide. It's been posted on here that it's somewhere on ArmyNET but I can't find it in the maze, neither can I find it on the Sandhurst website. Can someone point me in the right direction. Also - Serve to Lead, any ideas where I can find that?

I have a copy of Serve to Lead, pretty sure I got it off of the arrse wickipedia, if not I will get it to you somehow. I can't help you with The Queen's Commission: A Junior Officer's Guide unfortunately. Let me know if you want that serve to lead document.

If its not too much trouble - I would like a copy of "Serve to Lead" - would be interesting to see if/how much it has changed/been updated! I threw away my original copy the last time I moved house.

Many thanks !

Very kind of you - it seems a bit smaller than the one I had - I recall that a large part was devoted to tactics, weapons - and how to conduct the various phases of a conventional conflict (advance, attack, retreat) - also IS operations.

However - it was also marked "confidential" - so maybe those parts were left out of the WiKi intentionally!

I would very much like a copy of he JO's guide - PM on its way.

I seem to remember that a couple of us were wiki formatting excerpts that pvtePile was posting onto a forum topic. I can't remember why he, or we, gave out in the end ...

I think the parts that you extracted were probably the parts of more general interest - and as such a very good choice.

The parts I referred to can be considered "for those especailly interested" - and not so much of general interest.

There is a lot of help on the net now for both basic training, and what to expect at Sandhurst. Both recruits and cadets can prepare themselves much more thoroughly than before - and I expect (despite some grumbling here on A**se) that helps to achieve higher standards.

I have an electronic copy somewhere on Pdf. Give us a PM with your email and I'll send it when I can be bothered raking it out.
Which? The JO's Guide or "Serve to Lead" - the latter would be useful ...

Swerve to Lead and the Jnr Offrs' guide are on the British Army Battle Box. Click on doctrine, then guides on the LH column.
