Tommy Atkins Posted October 16, 2007 Share Posted October 16, 2007 I've been trying to determine the syntax that would be used when British and Commonwealth forces called for artillery support. I'm particularly interested in the precise language that an FOO or similar would use when calling in a 'Quick Barrage' or 'Quick Fire Plan' in support of a small unit action (as described here). How would the FOO initiate contact with the battery (for example, what callsigns were used, what were the radio/phone procedures)? What phonetic alphabet did the Royal Artillery use (Able, Baker etc.)? Ideally, I'd really like to find a transcript of an FOO requesting such a fire mission (whether in a real or training situation). Does one exist anywhere? Any ideas/links/references much appreciated. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
