PREFACE
1. This latest edition of the Staff Officers’ Handbook (SOHB) has been prepared, published and distributed by the Land Warfare 1 (LW1) Branch of DGD&D. The layout follows the previous format but introduces a system of Serials for each major Part of the Handbook. This will allow for easier amendment to take account of the inevitable changes that will occur. It is intended to issue an amendment to this Handbook in the year 2000 and to plan on a major revision in the year 2001. 2. Each page of the SOHB has an authority recorded which indicates to the reader the original source of the information recorded on that page. This also implies that the authority recorded on each page is responsible for that information and thus any changes or amendments to that information will have to be authorised by that sponsor before acceptance by DGD&D for subsequent inclusion into any future amendments or revisions. Suggestions for improving the content or layout of SOHB are always welcome. These can be sent direct to RO1 Author, LW1, DGD&D. 3. This edition of SOHB has attempted to reflect some of the changes promulgated by the Strategic Defence Review (SDR) – particularly in regard to ORBATs and new structures. Some new structures are still in the proposal stage, or have not been endorsed by the appropriate establishment authority and others have not yet been finalised. Readers will have to recognise that this is an iterative process and will (probably) never be entirely accurate or up to date. The most up to date information about organisations or structures should be available from the sponsor of that page. 4. SDR is not the only complication for an up to date SOHB. NATO is in the process of changing its map symbology and although this process has not yet been ratified it is expected that within the next 12 months all NATO nations will be using the new map symbology. These details are not recorded in this SOHB. This, however, reinforces the rationale for the UK Armed Forces to move away from using single Service and possibly joint forms of operational staff duties and abbreviations in the near future. The Joint Services Command and Staff College (JSCSC) have the overall sponsorship of all Joint Service Writing and are in the process of rewriting JSP 101 which has been in use for many years. An interim JSP 101(A) has been produced which covers Service Writing in peace time HQs and the MOD but this does not replace Parts 4 and 5 of JSP 101 which deal with operational staff duties and are still extant. The reader will see that Part 5 of this new Handbook is in two portions – a portion covering UK operational staff duties and a portion covering NATO-agreed staff duties. There are significant differences. It is intended that the next edition of SOHB will not have any UK operational staff duties formats at all and that all Army formations and units will make use of NATO-agreed formats and abbreviations in their operational writing. 5. It is inevitable in a Handbook of this type that minor errors and inconsistencies will occur in the preparation of these Serials. The altered layout does allow for easy addition and subtraction of material when necessary, and a major portion of the Handbook has been recorded electronically in WORD format. Readers are encouraged to send amendments/changes/corrections to RO1 Author, LW1, DGD&D at any time using a floppy disc to forward their contribution. In addition, the RO1 Author may seek sponsor assistance to rationalise and harmonise the layout and presentation of material provided for publication before the next major revision of the Handbook. 6. Finally as a result of experience gained, it is apparent that SOHB is an important part of a unit’s publications and does not just serve as a useful tool to those on Staff courses (as originally envisaged). To this end SOHB has been placed on DGD&D’s CD-ROM in order to allow staff officers at major HQs to have the Handbook readily available on any appropriate computer network. It is also distributed in hard copy form on a wide scale to all units, training establishments and other Army groupings (DAs, training teams, independent minor units, garrison libraries etc). Requests for additional copies can be made to DGD&D by telephone, fax or letter, but have to be properly justified before additional copies can be allocated.

XPs and Sqn Main) and to move the assets and resources to match the demand.127 . Bde Sp SHQ (Sqn Main) is a C3 node. or likely to be. from the Fwd Pl (old FRG).

Each part of the CSS org has to have an HQ to coord def. ECP normally colloc with Fwd Pl. 5. 10.

C3 is the key to the system. 4. Notes: 1. First and Second Line med resources should gen be loc where they can be readily moved to where cas are being. 8. The disposition of the DSG and the Brigade Support Group (BSG) vary in that in each case the orgs in the fwd part of the Div area are more flexible than those in depth and can move fwd in dir sp of the fighting elms. A2 Echs usually 'brigaded' in fwd part of BSG with a senior ech comd to org def. 3. Representative BG. to move the 'interface pts' (for example.

ES functional split: CS - exchange PPs, E&MA, LRUs for high pri eqpt (fwd repair), arm repair, A veh repair (high pri), SA and MG repair, and rec from battlefield; GS most elect/optronic repair, PP repair, spec B vehs, low pri A vehs, depth repair (as nec), most ac repair, and rear rec/backloading; TA - gen and B veh repair, rec, and reclamation.

Specific relationships are: ES Bn HQ comd CS/GS coys (no and structure of bns depends on type of fmn being sp); TA Bn may also provide ES sp within FSG if nec; and Ac Bn REME exerts Functional Con over all Ac ES, and its HQ may be colloc with Comd ES. 20. HQ DSG comds def and mov of the DSG. May be colloc and/or blended with HQ Gen Sp Regt. HQ of rear area sy force needs to be colloc with HQ DSG for effective C3, especially of fire. 21.

Notes: 1. A wide variety of ac from many nations may provide sp to UK forces. RAF and selection of most common other nations ac shown here. AI is normally preferred method of providing air sp due to lower threat and greater tactical freedom for ac. 2. Close Air Support (CAS) may be provided by almost any ac capable of dropping a bomb or firing a gun. CAS is a role requiring considerable trg and expertise from both aircrew and FACs if it is to be eff. Not all ac possess the appropriate performance in terms of manoeuvrability, wpn systems and sortie rate capability. More specifically: a. Ac require con by FAC (may be helborne). Laser Target Marker Operator (LTMO) is a bonus, and can be used by Harrier, Jaguar, A-10, F-16D, Tornado GR1/4, F-18 (USMC). b. Ac op in multiples of 2 or 4. c.

SERIAL 1 – TIME AND SPACE PLANNING 1. Planning and Execution Time. Execution time includes a small allowance for movement within the next superior comd’s area and runs from receiving the order, through the battle procedure, to starting to execute the plan. No allowance is made for anticipation or preparation before receiving the order. At the higher levels and with formations held in greater depth extra time must be added for movement. e.g. for a corps held in depth as an AG reserve add 24 hours for movement.

2. Time Lines. A useful example of this is that a Bde Comd’s area of interest in terms of time is up to 30 hours ahead. He has to make a decision that affects his whole comd no later than 12 hours before he wishes it executed and 6 hours for one affecting a single unit. 3. Enhancing Timeliness. Fight the battle appropriate to the level of comd and in the decision time frame of that level of comd. The execution time can be speeded up and hence decision can be delayed by: a. Planning for Options - but this requires time in advance of the event and that events unfold as anticipated. b. c. Grouping to a standard pattern - difficult with scarce resources. Lowering decision levels by: (1) Committing smaller groupings - but this lacks combat power.

(2) Grouping a bit of everything with everyone - but this runs the risk of penny packetting. (3) Mission comd.

Used by gun btys adopting static deployment methods and other arty elms of sufficient size, eg an ACP or elms of STA arty. Usually loc within an ARA. Requires max overhead cover, a track/road circuit and, where poss, areas of hardstanding to allow Xloading. DROPS mob is the essential factor. Close to an MSR. Used by AS90 btys adopting a manoeuvre deployment method. Not for the exclusive use of arty and usage must be carefully coord wit other tps in the area. Used by AS90 regts adopting a manoeuvre deployment method. Not for the exclusive use of arty and usage must be carefully coord with other tps in the area.

Not for the exclusive use of arty and usage must be carefully coord with other tps in the area taking into account the distinctive firing signature, the likelihood of retaliatory attack and the toxic nature of th rkt efflux. A Px bty requires 4 x 1 km ARAs, 1 for each of 3 launch/rec sects and 1 for the bty ech. The 3 GCS/GDTs do not warrant exclusive ARAs but should, where poss, be deployed on high ground. Each COBRA radar requires a 1 km ARA in which to adopt ‘emit and skit’ deployment tac.

(2) How many vehs will be required to dump a qty of stores within a given time? b. The formula depends on averaging out the factors which affect the turnround of vehs: No of vehs x round trips possible in aval time or No of vehs (V) x Total time aval (T) = Time for one round trip (t) = L ....

SERIAL 12 – EW PLANNING Definitions and Abbreviations 1. The British Army has adopted the NATO definitions for EW which cover sea, land and air operations, but has amplified them to illustrate the part that EW plays in land operations. NATO and British Army definitions are given below. NATO Definitions (See also: AAP-6) 2. Electronic Warfare Support Measures (ESM). ESM is that division of EW involving action taken to search for, intercept, identify and locate radiated electromagnetic energy for the purpose of immediate threat recognition. It provides a source of information required for immediate decisions involving electronic counter measures (ECM), electronic protective measures (EPM) and other tactical actions such as avoidance, targeting and homing. 3. Electronic Warfare Countermeasures (ECM). ECM is that division of EW involving actions taken to prevent or reduce an enemy’s effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum (ie active EW measures in British terminology). 4. Electronic Protective Measures (EPM). EPM is that division of EW involving actions taken to ensure friendly effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum despite the enemy’s use of electromagnetic energy. There are two subdivisions of EPM: a. Active EPM. Detectable measures, such as altering transmitter parameters as necessary, to ensure friendly effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum. b. Passive EPM. Undetectable measures, such as operating procedures and technical features of equipment, which are meant to ensure friendly effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum. 5. Communications Intelligence (COMINT). COMINT is defined as technical material and intelligence information derived from electromagnetic communications and communications systems (eg morse, voice, teleprinter, facsimile) by other than intended recipients. 6. Electronic Intelligence (ELINT). ELINT is defined as technical material and intelligence information derived from electromagnetic non-communications transmissions (eg radar, navigation aids, jamming transmission) by other than intended recipients. 7. Signals Intelligence (SIGINT). SIGINT is the generic term used to describe COMINT and ELINT when there is no requirement to differentiate between these two types of intelligence, or to represent fusion of the two.

4 - 12 - 1 Issue 1.0: Jul 99

Authority HQ R SIGNALS

8. Emission Control (EMCON). EMCON is the selective control of emitted electromagnetic or acoustic energy. The aim may be twofold: a. To minimize the enemy’s detection of emissions and exploitation of the information so gained. b. To reduce electromagnetic interference thereby improving friendly sensor performance. UK Definitions (See also JWP 0.01.1) 9. Tactical SIGINT. Tactical SIGINT is the process of intercept, analysis and collation of enemy electronic emissions by tactical EW units to provide combat intelligence for a tactical commander. This term must not be confused with Strategic SIGINT. 10. Offensive EW. Offensive EW is concerned with exploiting, degrading and preventing the enemy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is divided into passive (ESM) and active (ECM) measures. 11. Passive EW Measures. Passive EW measures are those measures taken to exploit the enemy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum in order to gain combat intelligence (from the tactical SIGINT product) for the tactical commander. 12. Active EW Measures. Active EW measures are those measures by which the enemy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum can be degraded or denied by jamming or electronic deception techniques. 13. Defensive EW. Defensive EW is aimed at retaining our own ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum and includes tactical, procedural and technical measures to counter the enemy EW threat. 14. Electronic Jamming. Electronic jamming is the deliberate radiation, re-radiation, or reflection of electromagnetic energy with the object of impairing the use of electronic devices, equipment or systems being used by an enemy. 15. Electronic Deception. Electronic deception is the deliberate radiation, re-radiation, alteration, absorption, or reflection of electromagnetic energy in a manner intended to mislead an enemy in the interpretation or use of information received by his electronic systems. 16. Manipulative Electronic Deception. Manipulative electronic deception is the simulation or alteration of friendly electromagnetic radiation to accomplish deception (eg false radio nets). 17. Imitative Electronic Deception. Imitative electronic deception is the introduction of electromagnetic radiation into enemy channels which imitate his own emissions (eg breaking into enemy nets).

Paragraph headings can form part of the opening of a sentence. The following minor rules apply: a. remembering always that the meaning remains clear. Some abbreviations indicate both the singular and plural. it is never to be added to the abbreviation of a verb. eg: ‘EX SECRET’. starting at the left tab. that demand the conventions of operational writing conform to the general layout described in Ref A.. Abbreviations. The main rule is that in operational writing the maximum use is to be made of abbreviations and the text is to be written in note form to save time and space. Reported Speech. e. Times are to be expressed using the 24 hour clock and the time zone suffix. Where unofficial abbreviations are to be used they are to be introduced into the order correctly. eg: ‘mob’ (mobilisation). d. Exercise Protective Markings. c. In exercise protective markings the word ‘EXERCISE’ is always to be abbreviated to ‘EX. An ‘s’ may be added only to the abbreviation of a noun. Units which have elements detached are to be described using the convention illustrated below. 2. The quantity of units/sub-units is always written in full eg: 2 Inf Bde (less two bns) 1 R IRISH (less one coy) g. Composite Nouns. unless an expedient such as: ‘Time Zone Used Throughout the Order: BRAVO’. eg: ‘CAMBERLEY’. eg ‘follows’ should be abbreviated to ‘fol’. b.0: Jul 99 Authority JSCSC . Proper Nouns. If the addition of an ‘s’ is necessary it is always placed at the end of the abbreviation eg: ‘CinCs’ (Commanders in Chief). Reported speech is written as spoken without abbreviations and indented in single inverted commas.SERIAL 1 – INTRODUCTION TO OP STAFF DUTIES Reference: A. Minor Rules. Proper noun are written in capital letters. Issued 1300 hrs’. Any composite noun. or one containing a prefix or suffix is to be abbreviated by abbreviating that part of it for which there is an authorised abbreviation. JSP 101 (Revised 1991) Part IV 1.

If generally parallel to the front. The banks are usually described by means of the cardinal points. The grid reference is to be given the first time the name of the place or feature occurs. Cardinal points may be added if required. Names of Places and Features.We captured 3 offrs and 2 NCOs. eg south. i. River Banks. cardinal points may be used to describe flanks. written in full. or names of places on it. Roads. f. a route is described by a sequence of points on the route named. ‘Near’ and ‘far’ may be used with reference to friendly forces involved in river crossing operations. Canals. by suing cardinal points. They are to be described from rear to front during an advance and from front to rear in defence and withdrawal. e. eg ‘railway Winchester-Basingstoke’. d. An area is described by taking the northernmost point first and giving the remaining points in clockwise order. Roads. Boundaries are designated by easily distinguishable features on the ground in the sequence in which they occur. rather than ‘left’ or ‘right’. River banks are described as right or left from the point of view of an observer facing downstream or. The names of a canal. b. tracks and railways are described by the names of places located on them. When movement is involved. is to precede the names of all rivers regardless of the language in which this word appears on the map. ‘track’ or ‘railway’ is to precede the place names. Areas. c. Routes. Areas and Boundaries. The names of places and features are spelt exactly as on the map in use. They revealed en morale to be very poor. The 4 cardinal points of the compass are written in full. To avoid confusion. The word ‘road’. they are to be described from left 5-1-2 Issue 1. Boundaries. h. 3. Ground/Positions. are used to describe a canal. except that the word ‘River’. Ground and positions are described from left to right and front to rear facing the enemy. Ground Location. if this cannot be done. E and W are used. It should be shown as a bigram map code followed by the grid reference number. the sequence of points named is to be from left to right or rear to front. The following points should be noted: a. Points of the compass should always be considered in clockwise order from north. eg: ‘CN 493246’. SSW. Cardinal Points. Tracks and Railways. eg: ‘the north bank of the Kiel Canal’. eg NE. assuming that the person designating the route is facing the enemy. When no movement is involved.

As a point of the compass. Time Zone ALPHA. eg ‘direction Hannover-Dortmund’. The term ‘2400 hrs’ is never to be used as a time of day. the words ‘inclusive’ or ‘exclusive’ are used before the place to which they refer. When describing boundaries between units and formations. Cardinal points may be added if required. eg ‘5600 mils’. 4. ‘SE’. An example: 031404AJUL97 3 July 1997. Quoting the Time. The time can be followed by a time zone suffix or the word ‘hours’ if confusion with other figures is possible. 1404 hours. The following rules should be noted: a.0: Jul 99 Authority JSCSC . eg ‘north’. c. or where the rules require it. Date Time Groups. j. eg: 1432 or 1432 hrs. Time. Midnight. The first pair of digits define the hour and the second pair the minutes past the hour.

Directions.to right facing the enemy. Where there is a possibility of error or ambiguity. 5. The description of a boundary must state specifically to which unit or formation an area or a point is inclusive or exclusive. The word midnight is not to be used. A direction may be indicated in one of 3 ways: (1) (2) (3) By use of 2 locations or places. eg: 1147 is 47 minutes past 11 o’clock in the morning. Time is specified using the 24 hour clock.

Overlays may be produced as ‘clears’. When producing an overlay opO it is axiomatic that the max amount of info should be rep graphically. The overlay should show the sit as comd intends/expects it to be when op is carried out rather than current sit.

Report Line A line at which troops. must report to their command echelon. The correct division of resources between forward and reserve troops. In deciding when to commit reserves the following should be taken into account: An attacker is more vulnerable when he is on the point of launching his assault or has just reached his objective. Personnel. units or formations earmarked for future use on mobilization or against an operational requirement or withheld from action at the beginning of an engagement.45 Issue 1. are amongst the most difficult decisions which a commander will have to make.

It may be possible to destroy or compel the enemy to withdraw by bringing an increasing weight of fire to bear from the front. (e) The deployment of the reserve should be timed. A reserve is held in readiness to react to the unexpected. If the ground being forfeited is not vital to the continued defence of the area. The ground and the enemy strength will indicate the advantage of counter attacking or of remaining in depth. In all operations a reserve should be nominated and. positions including alternative positions and routes will have to be reconnoitred and prepared.

Standing Patrol AAP-6 A standing patrol is established to give warning of enemy movements by watching likely approaches and covering dead ground. Thus. selected on ground of tactical significance. AAP-6 Strongpoint (General War). The enemy may be expected to penetrate between strongpoints – they will then be destroyed by 6 . A line. A strongpoint must be prepared to hold firm even when outflanked or cut off by the enemy.(a) 149. It must have communications and be able to call for artillery or mortar fire. This saves constant repetition in orders and gives officers and soldiers a clear understanding of their individual responsibilities. Strongpoint A key point in a defensive position. Stop Line It would be inadvisable for the covering force to receive such an attack.

This does not necessarily imply that reconnaissance and/or guard elements do not maintain surveillance over the enemy. Retirement. 6 . Conversely the identification of the enemy’s vital ground becomes a key element in any attack estimate. Vital Ground AAP-6 Vital ground is normally identified by a superior commander and given out in his orders. AAP-6 A withdrawal occurs when a force disengages from an enemy force in accordance with the will of its commander. A planned operation in which a force in contact disengages from an enemy force. Vulnerable Point (VP) Withdrawal In Military Home Defence. which now describes important ground. (b) Turret Down (c) The vehicle is hidden but the commander can just see over the crest. a facility which is vital to the operational function of a Key Point. A retirement is different from a withdrawal in that it is a movement away from the enemy by a force out of contact with the enemy and is administrative in nature. 162. Care must be taken to differentiate between this term and Key Terrain. The definition of ground as ‘vital’ in defence will usually imply that counter attack plans must be made to regain it if it is lost to the enemy. It seeks to break contact with the enemy.(a) 158.
