    Command Task-

    COMMAND TASK SCENARIO

    You and your section have come across a cache of important documents. To save them from possible damage they have been stored in a barrel. This barrel has been placed within a perimeter, that is not allowed to be crossed at any time. It is known that there is an anti-theft device in the form of a mercury tilt switch attached to the barrel. It is therefore imperative that the barrel is kept upright at all times. If the barrel falls over or is lifted in such a manner that it lies at a greater angle than 45 degrees, it will explode.

    You are to rescue the barrel from this area, and place it in the safe area, close by, that is marked by minetape . You will have the use of the following equipment:

    2 x ropes

    you have 20 minutes to complete this task.

    This time should be split between briefing your section and carrying out this task.

    DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

    On the command go, you may begin
