2-1. Overview

In the 4th Infantry Brigade we assign all members to our ORBAT in specified positions that defines their responsibilities and their chain of command (CoC) . Some positions that are held also dictate which ranks may be assigned to that position and how those members may be promoted within our Promotion Structure.



2-2. Initial Assignment

After successful completion of Phase 1 Training, Privates are assigned to an 'Open' position within their selected Infantry Company i.e. 2nd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment.

This assignment in most cases will be done to best accommodate the new members time constraints. However, all assignments shall be made with Operational Capabilities in mind, meaning that a new members preference may not be always be able to be met.

Members who wish to join a Support detachment, may be allowed to do so, if there is an Operational Requirement.  Any further transfers refer to Section 2-4.



2-3. Transfers

Transfers can be requested by any member for a number of things, these include:
  • Transfer of Role
  • Transfer to Reserves
  • Transfers to/from JHC
  • Submission of Extended Leave of Absence (ELOA)
  • Discharge Request
All transfers are administrated by G1.



2-4. Transfers of Role

Transfers are made on a case-by-case basis and are NOT guaranteed. Transfers are subject to an approval process, including (but not limited to):

Head of G1 Office Staff
Your current Section/Detachment Commander
Your desired transfer Section/Detachment Commander
Company HQ

All members must serve a minimum of 2 months within the infantry before transfers will be accepted to another detachment, excluding Urgent Operational Requirements.

G1 and Command Staff maintain the right to reject/rescind any transfer in the interests of Operational Effectiveness or for issues of discipline.

Please reference the Order of Battle (ORBAT) for information on what roles are currently open to transfer. These will be indicated by the word ‘EMPTY’ in a vacant position.

It is important to remember that we're all here to have fun; we will try and facilitate everyone's wishes, however, it is not always possible for the sake of the Unit.



2-5. Transfers to Reserves

Any member of the 4th Infantry Brigade who can no longer meet the 50% and above attendance requirement for section training and operation nights to remain as an active member can ask for a Transfer into the 4th Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment (Reserves)  

Within the reserves you are not required to meet the 50% and above attendance requirements and are able to fill in for people that are on Leave of Absence (LOA) on any given Operation Night.

However, as a reservist you are expected to attend once per month. If you go 3 months without attendance you will likely be discharged.

Reserves will keep their substantive rank, but will lose all Acting Rank, yet there is no guarantee they can return in the previous rank when returning from reserves.



2-6. Transfers to/from JHC

Any members transferring to the AAC, within JHC, as a pilot must complete the following courses prior to ANY transfer to be completed.
  • Cross Check 
  • Basic flight 
  • Defence Technical
  • Advanced Signals
They will then transfer across at the appropriate rank within the AAC.

Any members transferring to the AAC, within JHC, as Ground Crew must have an interview conducted by Commander of JHC prior to ANY transfer to be completed. Their incoming rank will be discussed, and decided during their interview.

Any members transferring to the RAF, within JHC, as a pilot must complete the following courses prior to ANY transfer to be completed.

  • Cross Check 
  • Basic flight 
  • Defence Technical
  • Advanced Signals

Once they have transferred they will go to the rank of AC, prior to attending any further courses within JHC.

Any members transferring to the RAF, within JHC, as Ground Crew must have an interview conducted by Commander of JHC prior to ANY transfer to be completed. Their incoming rank will be discussed, and decided during their interview.

Any members transferring from JHC will return as a Private until the individual can be assessed and an appropriate rank assigned. (Note: An appointment won’t be made for the individual and they may have to return to a lower rank until a position opens)



2-7. Submission of Extended Leave of Absence (ELOA)

Any member of the 4th Infantry Brigade who cannot attend for over a month can submit an ELOA (Extended Leave of Absence). If you are notifying us of an Extended LOA, please indicate an estimated return date.

ELOA’s will keep their ranks yet there is no guarantee they can return in the previous rank when they return from ELOA.



2-8. Urgent Operational Requirements (UOR)

When Urgent Operational Requirements is declared for transfers, the following SOP's shall be followed:
  • Transfer can be approved for immediate processing by Company Command.
  • Transfer can be approved for immediate processing if all involved parties approve.
  • Minimum service within infantry is waivered
  • 30 day wait period between transfers is waivered


2-9. Discharge Request



If requesting Discharge from the unit, a three day "cool down" period will be placed on the Discharge, allowing time for a change of heart.


If the member holds the rank of Corporal or above, they are requested to have an interview with the CO/OC of the unit, prior to applying for their discharge.

If a person wishes to Discharge immediately, knowing that they will not return to the unit, then the option for immediate Discharge is available.

If requesting Discharge from the unit, you must ask exactly that. You cannot request Retirement. Retirement member status will be granted by the Current Company HQ, and will be judged case by case.



2-10. LOA Procedures

When a member fails to submit a LOA for a mandatory event the following actions are to be taken:


First Time - Timer begins
  • Update file with a Red marker.
  • Member is given a verbal warning - G1 to be informed via Private Message.
If a second occasion within a 2 month period from the first offence:
  • Update file with Red marker
  • Send a Private message as per AGAI 67 template for a Section IC warning
If a third occasion within a 2 month period from the first offence:
  • Update file with Red marker
  • Platoon Sergeant sends a Private Message as per AGAI 67 for a Platoon Sergeants Warning.
  • Member moved to Reserves
  • G1 sends a message asking what the member wants to do - Discharge, stay in reserves, or Return to Unit.
If the member goes 2 months without another failing, the warning is removed.

If the member continues to fail to post LOA’s over a prolonged period, but fails to breach the procedures listed above, it is the Section IC’s decision, after consultation with the Plt Comd & Sgt, as to what action(s) are to be taken.

Standard LOA’s should be notified via the forum’s no later than 3 hours prior to the start time.

Unforseen LOA’s can be posted after this time period, or after the event to inform CoC as to the LOA.

2.11. Discharges
