Survive to Fight

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by BuckFelize, Feb 28, 2008.

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. Would anyone happen to have a vintage Edition 1 copy that they could scan the cover of, so I can wap it on the relevant ARRSEpedia page? If so, just jpeg it on this thread and I'll copy it over. Ta! :wink:
     
  2. Would that be "Army Code 71338" with D/DAT/13/33/18 in the corner?
     
  3. what is the current edition?
     
  4. I'll try and get up in the attic today ... I'm sure I have a box load of old stuff still up there!

  5. Come on you kit tart what do you want this for
     
  6. Think I have one at work - you mean the one with drawing on the cover of bloke in S6, Mk III tin pot & fixed bayonet SLR charging on cover?
    Not back in till next Tues, will bring it home & do the biz for you then. Expect a pm about Wed/Thu.
     
  7. Oh FCUK, spiders ... I forgot about that.

    Blow your Survive to Fight out your arrse BF!
     
  8. I have, in front of me right now, Survive to Fight D/DAT/13/33/18, complete in its plastic binder. The amendments page is blank and the Foreword is dated 1 June 1983.

    If you'd care to give instructions on how to upload, I'll scan any bits you want tonight.

    Or I could post it to you.


    I keep it handy so I can read through it and not forget the correct drills. ;)
     
  9. Basic Battle Skills is a better "on the throne" read though.
     
  10. Though not as good as "Your Health and You" - I liked that one 'cos it said I could drink beer (I was 17 when I got it).
     

  11. You are right, have forgotten how to do that and also how to eat an AB biscuit with a resperator on. So much lost knowledge ..... :lol:
     
  12. Just been rooting around the loft to try and find my old copy.
    No luck yet but I did find some vintage porn and some things that I should not have "in my possession Sir!"
     
  13. Against my better judgement I have been up in the attic. I went armed with a sword; not because of lurking spiders, but, because I haven't been up there for a while, I feared that some Albanians may have moved in.

    What a treat; I found a mortar, a couple of fuzes, a red sea flare, a 1979 RE Pocket Book, a NI Aide Memoire, my EOD and Search course notes, a Battlefield First Aid pam, a Battlefield Skills Pam and various other amounts of clutter. But no Survive to Fight. But I did find this rather amusing relic. Issue 3 5-82 "NBC Survival Task Book". This was the forerunner of STF:

  14. 2" or 81mm? Enquiring minds and all that. Come the revolution we may need a FB.
     
  15. Yes it's for real. Saw them in the display cases at Winterbourne Gunner when I did my course in 03.
