Call Sign word
Company Code Name
First Numeral
Platoon (1 or 2) or (6 or 7)
Second Numeral
Squad Number (1, 2 or 3)
  • The Numeral 6 equals Unit Leader (Platoon or Company level only)
  • The Numeral 7 equals NCO (Platoon Sergeant or Company Sergeant)

Designations Charlie, Charlie 1 and Charlie 2 are designations for units, not individuals. Charlie is Company HQ, Charlie 1 is CP1 HQ and Charlie 2 is CP2 HQ. If these are called, one of the HQ members will respond. In a sense this also goes for squad Call Signs. Example: "Charlie 2-2" is the Squad Leader of CP2S2, but can also be used as a Call Sign for the squad, "Move Charlie 2-2 to the left and hold position east of town". It is even possible to hear it used as part of a call from HQ, "Get Charlie 2-2's AT up here"!

"Actual" is the active commander. Each Squad, Platoon and Company has an "Actual", but at squad level the term is usually saved for clarification during a change of command. "Charlie Actual" would be acting company leader, "Charlie 1 Actual" would be acting CP1 leader and "Charlie 2-3 Actual" would be acting CP2S3 Leader. It is possible for a individual to answer to multiple names.

  • Company Leader should normally be called Charlie Actual, Charlie 6 when not in command.
  • Company Sergeant should be referred to as Charlie 7, unless responding to a "Charlie"(Company HQ) call. Company Sergeant would be Charlie Actual in the event of the Company Leaders absence.
  • Platoon Leaders should be called Charlie 1 Actual or Charlie 2 Actual, or Charlie 1-6,1-7 when not in command.
  • Platoon Sergeant should be referred to as Charlie 1-7 or 2-7, unless responding to a "Charlie 1 or 2"(Platoon HQ) call. Platoon Sergeant would be Charlie 1 or 2 Actual in the event of the Platoon Leaders absence.
  • Squad Leaders are called by their squads name, and should be the one responding normally when their squad is called.
  • Also be aware HQ members who are assigned to squads will should respond to their assignments name, not their normal Call Sign. Example: FSgt. is assigned to CP2S1 as a Automatic Rifleman(AR), he would respond to "Charlie 2-1's AR". The exception to this is when that FSgt. is called for duties that pertain to his roll as Co. Sergeant.
