Reply to "Mortars as individual weapons?"

My British Army Infantry days were back in the late 70s and we still had the 51mm. Never used it in anger but the  battle  template, as far as I remember, was that each man in the section would carry two rounds.

The 60mm mortar was a temp measure for use in Afghanistan and I believe, except for rapid deployment units (Para, RM) have been put into storage. Reg Brit infantry now have all their mortar eggs in the 81mm basket.
