Combat Brigade Commander PME Directive

By Tom McDermott May 16, 2019


The 3rd Brigade is a combined arms brigade of the Australian Army, based in Townsville.  This link takes you to the PME Directive published in 2016 by Brigadier Chris Field AM CSC, current Brigade Commander.  A great example of a structured program at Brigade level, and how a commander can express his intent and focus for PME to every member of his Brigade.
