Continuing the series of recorded pieces from a L3 Stanag 6001 exam, here comes a sample L3 memorandum, which is one possible tasks to write during the exam in Poland.

Here’s the the instruction for this task:

During an international field exercise, a soldier was injured at a shooting range. You have been asked to write a memo to your CO in which you 1) describe the incident and its reasons, 2) assess the action taken and its effect on the exercise, 3) suggest what measures should be taken in order to avoid similar incidents in the future. Write at least 120 words.
