Patrolling SOPs

Evening,

I am currently writing a list of Patrols SOPs, the stuff that you know but they haven’t been taught in a formal lesson such as ambushes or Section Battle Drills.

Such as the tap up and down before setting off to make sure everyone is aware your about to move or the all round defence procedure of PACESSDO etc,

What have you been taught / introduced to? share away.

Always make sure that your bag of haribo is open and easily accessible before setting off.

Make sure that your iPhone ringer is turned down to moderate.

Post your exact route as a Facebook status update before setting off. Dont forget some emojis and to include a photo of the patrol in a heroic pose. Lolz.

Peace badge and pack of Marlboro cigarettes in your helmet elastic.


...or have a look through the electronic Battle Box (if its still around) - however if you don't have the experience to know anything like this, should you even be taking the lesson?
 
Always make sure that there is always someone in front of you and behind you, then hope you don’t get attacked from your flanks.
 
the TAM is definitely still available via AKX on the Defence Gateway - just checked.

Very suspicious.
 
when using ranger beads, actually practice using them for judging distance
If you get a longer string of beads you don't have to lay them down to measure the distance so often.

Why ? They are already written.

These are not SOP's.

I'll humour you.

1. Stay away from culverts

2. Don't sleep in barns ( when Officers decide to join your patrol )

3. Don't shoot the sh!t out of scarecrows ( even if they still appear to be firing back :D :D )

All 3 are potentially career ending moments ;);)
 
Save time patrolling by simply shooting up your own body armour. You don’t have to go anywhere then and you may get a medal.

However, when then writing up your report, don’t include so many elephants - the staff will be more interested in armaments factories.
 
Don’t forget to post your super secret SOPs on a public Internet forum to ensure ‘everybody’ knows them.

Viz does patrolling....
 
If you put your rifle down while you check the map, remember to pick it up again afterwards.

When crossing electric cattle fences, push the wire down with something non-conductive (e.g. a rubber butt pad) and if you're carrying an LMG do NOT let any loose hanging parts (e.g. a 50 round belt of blank) make contact with the wire. Also if your boots have hooks for the laces, make sure to lift your legs high enough over the wire, so you don't end up head first in a ditch twitching, with one leg attached to the fence.

Belt on an LMG?
