  4. A loaded march is a rapid march over distance carrying weight. The ability to complete loaded marches is a core military skill. A loaded march is known as a "Tab" in the British Army.

    In the British Army loaded marching is considered a core skill and is tested annually in an eight mile Combat Fitness Test carrying 15-25kg depending on the arm. The term tab has its roots in an acronym, being an abbreviation of Tactical Advance to Battle
