Is anyone aware of where there might be some printed info. regarding duties and responsibilities of this rank? BTW there is no Sgt. position presently above this rank. We have a newly appointed Drum Corporal who could use some black and white guidance (our band recently lost our P/M to a 6mth "break" from the band-this was announced virtually days after the appointment.)

Thanks! How come you have answers to all my questions?? :cool: I uncovered an old "book" put together years ago by our first P/M, but your bit wasn't there. I'll add it to the pile. We really need to give this young guy some direction and support.
