Should Pam 21 be restricted

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. Do you think it should be?
     
  2. Partially.

  4. It is basically the Army book on Range Safety. ie; How to blow up and shoot things other than your own soldiers. It doesn't always get read / complied with.

    Personally I think it should be classed as 'Confidential' as it is only a matter of time before the Taleban, Hezbollah and assorted loons sue the MOD for injuries caused on Ranges they are using under the auspices of Pam 21 that they have obtained from ebay.
     
  5. Pam Ayres in about 1968?

  6. Probably not for much longer, the protective marking scheme is to change very soon.

    In any case should it really be restricted? Copywrite protected maybe, but really how much value is it to the Queen's enemies?
     

  7. Why not
     
  8. Mere semantics...
     
  9. You don't get out much do you?

    Single?
     

  10. So would you think it a worthwhile question for the document author/sponsor.

    On the grounds that the Army Cadet Force training manuals are restricted and they teach nothing of recent relevance and tactics from the days of Bratwurst Mitt Senf I am suprised that PAM21 isn't.
