    or how about
    Prior Preparation dosen't Prevent P ish Poor Performance - it only delays it! (courtesy of another Arrser whose name I can't recall at present) so no claim to paternity for this quote, only for using it :wink:

  6. Trg Wg's have a video called 81mm Mortar Drills. This also covers bedding in, Adj Fire and a small bit about Arty Target.

    All the Best

  7. I have used the bit in Platoon where he calls fire on his own platoon. Good opportunity to rag the platoon commander etc.

    An old topic, but I'm back browsing...
  8. there is a scene from "The thin red line" with a fire control arty type thingy in it, calls arty fire on a hill top enemy loc. If you have the DVD then just have it ready at that scene on your puter thingy and hit "play" when the appropriate moment comes in da lesson.
