REGIMENTAL TRAIN BIVOUAC. a. General.
The regimental trains, less components released
to battalion control, are bivouacked during combat under control of the regimental or higher command- er, and under the direct command of the service company commander, or under an officer, usually the motor transport officer, to whom the command may be temporarily delegated by the latter. When not being used for supply, evacuation, or mainte- nance, vehicles comprising the trains are concealed in the regimental train bivouac.
(2) The regimental train bivouac usually con- tains, in addition to trains, various administrative installations and personnel. For interior arrange- ment of the train bivouac, see c below.
(3) The general location of the regimental train bivouac is usually announced by higher headquar- ters; occasionally this location is based on recom- mendations of the regimental commander. Knowing the general location of the regimental train bivouac, the regimental supply officer consults the service company commander and frequently the regimental motor transport officer concerning the exact loca- tion which he recommends for approval by the regi- mental commander.
