Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Now then

    I am after a set of platoon commanders orders. i.e the set in the manual fieldcraft section p 153 lefthand side (PDF electronic copy).

    Thanks
     
  2. Why? Cadets don't do Plt level tactics?

    TB
     
  3. No they don't but they do need a set to be delivered to them so they can extract a set of section orders from them.
     
  4. Try these. Also attached a patrol orders template and the extraction diagram. Enjoy.

  5. True, I had to do extraction of orders on my SCIC.
     
  6. Thats great stuff thanks but what I was really after is an actual set of orders i.e

    Ground
    Ground is open rolling countryside with small copses

    Situation
    Enemy ground
    The enemy is working in a small copse defended by 2 trenches they are carrying small arms etc

    Etc etc

    I have started on a set for teaching orders extraction but it is taking ages. I emailed Frimley to see if they have a set that we were delivered on our KGVI. I got thinking tried the internet and got no joy tried a few ACF detachment websites again no joy. I then remembered this site hence the thread.
     
  7. Write some yourself?
     
  8. I am but it just takes ages. I have never written any platoon orders before section yes but platoon no.

    Many hands make light work.

    There might be someone out there with more experience than me.
     
  9. Without stating the obvious, if you've written section orders then simply think of 3 sections together. If you've been involved in a Pl attack then recall what how it all works using the Pl Battle drills as a guide.
    Let me know if you need any tips.
