80.

An important aspect of con is the accounting for personnel -
knowing all patrolmen are present. All patrolmen must be accounted
for after crossing danger areas, after enemy contact, and after halts.

81.

When moving in single file, the last man “sends up the count”
by tapping the man in front of him and saying “one in a low voice or
whisper. The second man taps the man in front of him and says "two”.
This continues until the count reaches the ptl comd. The men behind
him, plus himself and the men he knows to be ahead, should equal the
total of the ptl.

a.

In large ptls or when moving in a formation other
than single file, subordinate comds can check their
own patrolmen and report to the 2IC or ptl comd as
required.

b.

The ptl 2IC will automatically “send up to count”
after crossing danger areas, obstacles, after enemy
contacts and after halts.

c.

Each man must ensure that the man he taps, receives
and passes on the count.

d.

On some occasions, the ptl 2IC will confirm the
count from the front, as the ptl passes, and then send
up “the count is good” from the rear, as he falls into
the order of march. (i.e. after halts)
