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:

    I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct place for this topic but here we go....

    I have been tasked with writing a set of Platoon SOP's. I've never seen a set of SOP's before, rather, in my experience these have always been different and defined by the Platoon Commander on the day.

    But I would like to get a spot on set ready.

    What kind of things should I include? And does anyone have an example of a SOP card that they've been issued that I could look at?

    Ulster_Rifleman War Hero

    Does what used to be the School of Gloom at Warminster still have 1 Warminster Rifles SOPs

    Might be a start
  3. msr

    msr LE

    irlsgt LE

    What are the SOPs for?

    Tactical (offence, defence)
    etc etc
  5. stev_e

    What are they for? Tactical field work.

    It would include things like:

    Signal for lift & shift, reorg, CASEVAC, ammo resupply, POWs etc etc
