At camp I was told that the drill bible was called the 401 but then when i told a smart mouth cadet to read the 201 my WO said that it was called 401. please help my question, and if you can tell me how I can get a copy
I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me , I must shoot him before he shoots me -Full Metal Jacket.

Ok I was wrong.  Personally I blame the horrible cough medicine.

Junior officers and NCOs who neglect to guide the thinking of their men are shirking a command responsibility.

201 is the standard for all cadet units. Or should be. AFAIK the Sea Cadet Manual of D&C covers things not in the 201 such as field gun drill and Lee-Enfield drill. Army and Air should follow the 201, the whole 201 and nothing but the 201! ;)


EDIT: And I think the Sea Cadet Manual of D&C doesn't have a number. I could be wrong there. But thats what I've been told of it.
This is what it would have looked like had the plane crashed into a school for bunnies.

Nope no number just the Sea Cadet Manuel of Drill and Ceremonial.

For those of you who just want to varify the facts check the link above.
As well sea cadets also follow the 201 (Gunners Bible)
