unit activity when in the line

  • shuli by shuli

    A question about basic tagging - may have been asked before....
    Usually when a unit moves from billets to the trenches it puts a company or two in reserve, one in support and one in the line. The unit activity tag has each of these options separately, when really each regiment is doing all of them at once. I have just been tagging "in the line". Is that ok?

    Yes, in that situation, I think the best thing is to go with the 'majority' activity.

    Possibly in the example given, I'd tag it as 'in reserve'.
