There are other soldiers nearby, even though they cannot always be seen. The firing and moving take place at the same time. If PWs cannot be evacuated in a reasonable time, give them food, water, and first aid.
Make sure the ground at the bottom of the hole is solid enough to support the mine when pressure is applied to the pressure plate. Camouflage the dirt used as frontal, flank, rear, and overhead cover. fiedl
FM Chptr 3 Movement
If moving where it is easy to blend with the background such as in a forest and you are caught in the light of an aerial flare, freeze in place until the fmre burns out.
Mankal test is not always reliable on porous material such as wood or rubber. Destroy all maps or important docu- ments if capture is imminent.
If the symptoms recur after a latent period, you should go to an aid station. Also, dull the surfaces of equipment and vehicles with paint, mud, or some type of camouflage material.

Wash or exchange clothing when it oecomes dirty situation per- mitting. When possible, write them out beforehand. Tag all wire lines at switch- board. Those words help to avoid confusion. Use the visual search technique. When he gets down, you should get down. Dig the hole wide enough to let the muzzle end of tne launcher extend 15 cm 6 in beyond the front of the hole and the rear of the launcher extend out over the rear of the hole.
Give them to your leader quickly.
When giving first aid to a casualty, you should use the casualty’s first-aid items, lou may need your own items later if you become injured.
See lchapterT for additional considera- tions in the building of your fighting positions. Wash your body frequently from head to foot with soap and water, if no tub or shower is available, wash with a cloth and soapy water, paying particular attention to armpits, groin area, race, ears, hands, and feet. The use of atropine autoinjectors and artificial respiration are first-aid measures for nerve-agent poisoning. A trench must be dug for the bipod legs. During such lulls, exercise.
If contact is made with the enemy, you must dismount from the tank at once. If you hear the firing of an aerial flare while you are moving, hit me ground behind cover if possible while the flare is rising and before it bursts and illuminates.
PWs who receive favors or are mistreated are poor interrogation subjects. Too much camouflage, however, may draw attention. The senior soldier present is responsible for their care.
Decontami- mxnual the eyes by flushing them fiepd with plain water. When time does not permit con- structing a well-prepared overhead cover, use a FM poncho.
If burns or blisters develop on the skin, cover them with sterile gauze or a clean cloth to pre- vent infection. However, you cannot be sure which side the civilians are trying to help, so be careful when acting on information obtained from them.

When the enemy uses a flare to spot mankal, he spoils his own night vision. Dig a hold about 15 cm 6 in deep and 13 cm 5 in in diameter. Man- made cover includes such things as fighting positions, trenches, walls, rubble, and craters. Also be alert for enemy troops that may cause the tank to travers its turret quickly and fire.
This is called a pressure dressing. Cover also guards against the effects of friendly weapons supporting from the rear, such as small arms fire or discarding sabot rounds fired from tanks. A light, or its reflection, from a position may help the enemy detect the position. Those you can use are described in this section. Seat the handset firmly in the retain- ing cradle. The top of the T, however, must be longer than the shaft of the T.
When the characteristics match, the range does also. It can be set for pressure detonation or set with a tripwire attached to a release-pin ring. As necessary, bury the towelette and decon packets under sev- eral inches of soil. The smaller the hole, the less likely it is that rounds, grenades, or airburst fragments will get into it.
Many of the things that may cause poor radio communications can be corrected by using common sense.
If you have been firing from one position for some time, the enemy may have spotted you and may be waiting for you to come up from behind cover.
