Cpl Stone - 2 PARA Sniper Platoon completed the arduous Infantry Sniper Section Commanders course at the Direct Fire Support Division, Specialist Weapons School at Warminster. He achieved a Distinction and top student. The 10 week course teaches battlegroup level support in precision fires, surveillance and specialist information gathering techniques. Cpl Stone is a fantastic example of the standards set by Paratroopers on @britisharmy Infantry courses.

📥 Comment what you want to see next! - 🇬🇧 The following is the organization of the British Parachute Infantry rifle section circa 1944-1945. This is an updated version of an infographic previously posted that featured the Sten Mk. III instead of the Mk. V. - ⚔️ The section deviated slightly from the standard infantry section with the expectation that it would need to operate more independently and be more capable of sustaining casualties due to its airborne mission. - ⚔️ The section consisted of 10 men lead by a Sergeant (whereas standard infantry sections were usually commanded by a Corporal). The section was split into the gun group and rifle group. - ⚔️ The gun group consisted of the Bren gunner, a mortarman (with a stripped down version of the two-inch mortar), and a sniper with a No. 4 Mk. I (T) (a Lance Corporal on paper). - ⚔️ The rifle group consisted of the section 2IC (a corporal, whereas a typical infantry section had the 2IC lance corporal in the gun group) and 5 riflemen. - ⚔️ Officially, there were two Sten submachine guns in the section. On paper, the mortarman may have been allocated a pistol, but likely carried a Sten in field. The mortarman's main job was dispensing smoke, as he carried only 6 smoke rounds in the field. The integration of a mortarman in the section was done partially to decrease the amount of men in the platoon, as normally there would be a separate mortar section in the platoon. - 🌇 The illustrations used in this infographic are based upon heavily edited photographic reference courtesy of the Royal Armouries, which are then drawn on top of in Adobe Illustrator. Illustrations are often deviate from original photo reference, usually to add or subtract features or characeristics of firearms to fit the period. At higher resolution, the illustrations resemble water color. - #paras #airborne #paratroopers #specialforces #reddevils #britisharmy #parachuteregiment #milsurp #smle #leeenfield #ww2 #worldwarii #gunstagram #gunsofinstagram #gunsofig #guns #firearms #milsurpguys #gunsdaily #weaponsdaily #gunchannels #igmilitia #2a #molonlabe #worldwar2 #sas #airsoftnation #milsim #reenactment #firearms

theworldwars. Monte Cassino as seen from a British observation point in February 194

Monte Cassino as seen from a British observation point in February 1944. The monastery is seen under heavy artillery bombardment, and I believe the snow-capped mountain looming in the background is Monte Cairo. The precursor to the Second Battle of Monte Cassino would go down as one of the more controversial decisions of World War II, and one that still remains so to this day. As the Allies formulated their second attempt at cracking the Gustav Line, many commanders believed the monastery atop Monte Cassino was the reason a breakthrough had failed the first time. The biggest concern was whether or not the complex was being occupied by the Germans and being used as an observation post for artillery. Several high-ranking Allied commanders had flown over the abbey numerous times and reported seeing significant German activity below, while others, such as Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Keyes, also flew over but saw nothing. With conflicting reports and no definitive answer, other Allied commanders, like Maj. Gen. Francis Tuker of the 4th Indian Division, believed the monastery needed to be destroyed regardless of whether it was occupied or not in order to prevent any potential occupation in the future. But the controversy over this belief revolved around the monastery’s historical significance. First constructed in 529 although destroyed and rebuilt numerous times over many centuries, the abbey had been a national monument in Italy since 1866. In the lead-up to the first battle at Cassino in January 1944, the Italians and even the Germans openly pleaded to the Allies that they not destroy it. Respecting the significance of the complex, the Germans withdrew their troops from the buildings and excluded it from any battle plans, officially declaring it an “open” site. Ever skeptical of their enemy, the Allies didn’t believe the Germans, or at the very least didn’t believe they’d keep their word. Talks went back and forth between Allied commanders over what to do - bypass the abbey or destroy it - and the decision was eventually made by Fifth Army commander General Mark Clark to bomb it. Ironically, Clark was initially against destroying it. More to come in another post.

Oudna Platoon on the Log during P Company this week. Stay strong! In the end, no amount of encouragement will drive a person to their limits...Only something that comes from within....Only breaking through the pain barrier and moving to that euphoric territory of supreme pride and the feeling of invincibility will drive you on!
