I am hoping to benefit from the experience of prior PCBC and PSBC attendees. I am due to attend PCBC (TA) in the next few months and would like to be as fully prepared for this course as I can be. To this end I would very much welcome advice and insight to help focus my preparation. In particular, practical guidance on anything from fieldcraft issues for the plt. cmdr. through to the effective management of the assault/fight through will be all respectfully received. On this last point, the fight through always seems to be very rushed on exercise - two sections abreast F&Ming in and all over in three minutes flat, enemy vanquished and back to camp just in time for breakfast. I always find this very unreal as I have read this stage took many hours in the Falklands. Lastly, I have reviewed the MoD website and was unable to find much in the way of course details. However, I did obtain the following outline of the Warminster-vintage course from a fellow plat comm, although he is unable to say whether or not the Sennybridge course differs in emphasis. As far as people know, is this still the syllabus and if not, how has the emphasis changed? Thank you. a. Apply combat procedures and techniques. b.
