    Hey everyone,
    Just wondering whether any of you could give me a detailed breakdown of the following:

    Role of a Troop Commander?
    Role of a Troop Sergeant?
    Role of the Corporals (Section Commanders) within a troop?
    Role of Lance Corporals within a troop?
    What different sections does a troop consist of?

    Thanks in advance.

    Troop commander : an officer fresh from training who will have many ideas. He will write your report and lead you in the field. He is in charge of man management

    Troop sergeant : the troop commanders attack dog who will occasionally bite the hand of his owner. He will enforce discipline

    Troop corporals : leaders of the sections and your link to the sergeant/boss , the go between , the top cover , the lads lawyer and a big brother to you

    Lance jacks : experienced or usually good lads who are section 2ics

    In a fighting company there will be two close combat troops ( if there are the men ) and a fire support group.
