The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
What is the definitive document and is it available in E copy ?
For the UK - Land Component Handbook (Acronyms, Abbreviations, Glossary of Terms and Symbology) Army Code 71748.
It's on the electronic battle box.
I believe that APP-6(A) is the source document (under STANAG 2019). APP-6 has recently been rewritten which is the one that standardises terminology and is on the intranet. I cant find APP-6 (A) on the intranet, but try the wikipedia entry for APP-6a, this has a link to a draft PDF document.
As QRK says there is a UK guide in the battlebox that is useful, but this will not be definitive if you are working in a NATO context.
Or you can get it from the interweb here:
If the linky doesn't work just look up APP-6A in Wikipedia it is the first link at the bottom of the entry
Also on DII on the Battle Box section there
