I have Mr. Noll's book but am confused by the term "stab". Does this mean staff weapon? If so, how does one know that a weapon is a staff weapon? I have been looking and re-looking and am getting bug eyed. Jim

Jim, I think one can determine a weapon to be to a staff by the absence of otherwise expected subordinate units. An example might be 178.R.21. versus 178.R.3.21. The former would be 178th Regiment Staff weapon 21 and the latter would be 178th Regiment 3rd Battalion weapon 21.

Keep in mind that I may be totally off on this.

Geo, You are correct. A staff pistol lacks the company number. There would be a space between the R. and the weapon number. As 178.R. 21. To leave space for the addition of a company number at a later date. As per Jeff Noll.


BTW Geo, thanks for helping Jesse with the artillery. I blew that one completely. Did'nt even notice that the sights were'nt fine tuned.
