Bren Carrier Platoon
Each infantry battalion has a carrier platoon of three patrols. Each patrol has three Bren Gun Carriers, each crewed by an NCO, a driver/mechanic and a rifleman. The carriers are armed with a Bren light machine-gun, with one carrier in each patrol armed with a Boys anti-tank rifle as well.
Blister contains three Bren Carriers.

Carrier Patrols operate as separate platoons, each with their own command team. Although its patrols operate as separate platoons for all other purposes, a Carrier Platoon deploys all at the same time as a single platoon. For example, this means that you treat the entire Carrier Platoon as a single platoon when calculating the number of platoons held in Ambush or Reserve.
Carrier Patrols are Reconnaissance Platoons.
