Wasn't it Protection, Ammunition, Weapons, Personal Cam, Equipment, Radios, Specialist equipment, Orders (PAWPERSO)?

Seem to remember Protection was always first - with SA80/LSW it was done by fire teams and with SLR/GPMG it was the old buddy system.

Thank him upstairs I am not doing that anymore! Hats off to the boys who are though.

I learned it as PROWAR (back in the day, not really) with the . .

P reperation (PAWPERSO) see SunrayDown
R eaction to effective En fire (was dash, down, crawl, observe, sights, fire now RTR Return two rounds, Take cover, Return accurate/effective fire)
O bserving the en same as locating really
W was Winning the firefight now a tad limp-wristed 'supressing the En' Homos.
A ssault
R e-group PACESDO/PACPOWDER

Re org? Nope. Regroup. Reorgs are now for platoons only, or so I ws told by a really scary man in Camberley.


As always Protection always first in PAWPERSO and PACESDO or PACPOWDER

I can only guess it is to hinder wires getting crossed, the faint "Reorg!" is taken to heart by the whole platoon who go streaming off in to the sunset leaving the Plt banana feeling a bit left out or something.
