PuckChaser said:My response to that would be that if you're trying to build leaders, treat them as leaders. Making your Cpl work as a Sgt gives him a great appreciation of the jobs "2-up" from his own. And of course, we never take Section Commanders as casualties that would cause a 2iC to become that new section commander.... :facepalm:
Agreed! On my PLQ (CLC, '93) we HAD to pass PCs as the Student Section Commander (section attacks, recce patrols, routine in the defence, small party tasks, etc). This was still the case when I was staff on them in the late 90s as well. Not sure if the old ISCC did it the same.
On 6A (Ptl Comd), we were assessed in the A c/s seat and later on 6B, we had to pass PCs/traces as the Tp Leader as well as the A c/s. Same reasoning you posted above.
Seems like, in some regards, we're going backwards not forwards.
