One star board information and revision Flanellette this is used on the pull through to remove dirt from the barrel/and body of the rifle, and to oil the barrel/rifle. To Scale It must be 45mm Wide by 45mm high. (one blue line to the next wide is 45mm) Map and Compass You need to know how to 1. Orientate a map (Point it in the direction your walking) 2. Take a six figure grid reference 3. Identify conventional signs. 4. Measure distance on a map How to take a six figure grid reference!!!!! OS maps are divided into numbered squares. These squares can be used to give a place a four or six-figure grid reference. It is important that you know both four-figure and six-figure grid references. Eastings Easting are lines that run up and down the map. They increase in number the further you move east (or right). You can use them to measure how far to travel east. Northings Northings are lines that run across the map horizontally. They increase in number the further you move north (or up the map). You can use them to measure how far to travel north. Remember: numbers along the bottom of the map come first and the numbers up the side of the map come second the four-figure reference 2083 refers to the square where the Eastings line 20 meets the Northing line 83 the six-figure reference 207834 will give you the exact point in the square 2083 - 7/10s of the way across and 4/10s of the way up The six-figure reference on the map below shows the church in Bamford. 2
One star board information and revision . EastingsMaps are quite large and complicated; to tell someone where we are instead of using a place name we usea grid reference. There are two types you need to know, these are a four and six figure grid reference.Four figure grid reference.These can be used to give a general idea of where the location is, giving accuracy to one grid square (everygrid square covers a distance of 1km across and 1.5km horizontally), these are not used very much incadets.3
One star board information and revisionHOW TO DO IT WILLIS!!!!!!! You are told to give a four figure grid reference for the place of worship. 1. What we do is follow the eastings (the numbers on the bottom) until you get to the one before the place of worship. This number is 17 (that’s your easting). 2. Then you need your northing, you work this out by going up the numbers on the left until you get to the one before the location. This number is 51 for the place of worship.You would write it as 17,51If we want a more accurate answer we can take a six figure grid reference.How to do this!!!!!!!!!!You do the same process as a four figure grid. 52You then split the square into 10X10, Example---->You take the eastings of this square which is 5You then take the northing which is 2You then write as 175 512 51 17 18 Measuring distanceTo measure the distance along a road or a river which is not straight, lay a piece of paper along the first section andmark it with a dash at the start and end of that section. Then pivot the paper about the second dash until it lies alongthe second section and repeat the process, and so on, until the last point is marked. The total distance along theroad is then recorded as a straight line on the piece of paper and can be read off against the scale4
