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:

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. ;)

Basic Battle Skills is a better "on the throne" read though.

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).

yes but that one doesnt teach you how to deficate correctly while wearing a noddy suit. keep Su To Fi in your bog and a noddy suit and you'll be right mucker.

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:

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!"

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:

2" or 81mm? Enquiring minds and all that. Come the revolution we may need a FB.

thasss fcking cheery! is that a spoof? or a real pam?

no wander the Staff took NBC so seriously if its real if they'd had that to stir them up.

(ps I used to enjoy unscrewing (unliked) people's canisters so on spontanious gas drills you'd have loads of rezzie canisters pinging about and instructors shouting at them ' 5 seconds...you're fcking DEAD...check your kit'

also once put sweet wrappers (fat fcker) also a load of fullers earth on top...the rezzie pouch was like a jack in the box to me and other tw3ts ...I mean jokers...to enlived boring, tired days.)
Yes it's for real. Saw them in the display cases at Winterbourne Gunner when I did my course in 03.

I only need a cover shot - though I suppose the page with Task 17 on it would be good for posteriority. The eBay image is a bit shyte. I've got one knocking about somewhere, but am buggered if I can find it.

I had the cover scanned to a disk by graphics dept. today, but if you want Task 17 as well I'll go back & see the helpful young techie who did it for me again tomorrow & square it away for you.
Hope you can modify it to your needs OK.
Cheers, B_D_S

I have just discovered the Survive to fight Edition 4 dated 01/02, Shoot to Live 1981 (SLR shooting positions, complete with sad little cartoons) & Basic Battle Skills 1991 all in my bedside drawers, for some odd reason. I can scan & email all or any of the above & email if required.
