All correct, but I some how missed the second "S", thanks.

It's mnemonic - from the greek word mnemos (to remember). Honest!

thank you very much for that and a big well done for spotting my obvious spelling/grammatical error, the pneumonic i referrred to is of course associated with pneumonia.

Hmmm. Probably out of date now, but I was taught PASSWWORD as the section cdr's aide memoir for the Reorg -

P-protection (rfn sentry 25m into dir of enemy threat)
A-ammunition stake (by 2ic)
S-searchers (all round clearance/ en dead)
S-shellscrapes
W-weapons check (sec cdr/ 2ic)
W-wounded
O-orders (for next move)
R-recovery (of gun/ fire-support group)
D-direction (of next axis of advance)
