One in three west country

#1
Can anyone remember the actual watch routine for one in three west country? We've lost one of our four watchkeepers so I'd like to work the best routine possible.
Thanks.

Try 8-hour shifts (providing you're not using it for Armed Sentries).

0800-1600
1600-2359
0001-0800

Long hours but workable until you get sufficient cover for a fourth watchkeeper...

I seem to remember some thing like:-

Day one forenoon, dogs, middle
Day two afternoon morning
Day three first

Turn to during the forenoon after the morning ONLY.

Seems to work?

Must admit I don't like the look of that - when do you get an all night in??

I've never worked 'west country 1 in 3' but had heard that it was 'normal' 1 in 3 but you didn't turn too when off watch. Maybe this was wishful thinking.

In the MCO I've always worked 1 in 3 as follows:

Day 1 - Forenoon / long first (2000-0200)
Day 2 - Afternoon / long morning (0200-0800)
Day 3 - Dogs / all night in

A forenoon make and mend normally followed the long morning.
Much preferred this routine than standard 1 in 4 because your all-night-ins are more often.

As I remember it was
middle afternoon first
all night in
forenoon last dog morning
turn to in the forenoon
first dog then back to middle
