FIELDCRAFT PROFICIENCY
FCP - 6 – KNOTS AND LASHINGS
1 PERIOD
General Use of Knots and Lashings
6001. In the field, a knowledge of ropework is
invaluable when understanding pioneering type tasks.
Standardised knots and lashings are used by various
organisations so that each member knows what the other person
is doing or has done previously, particularly if you are
dismantling or repairing someone else’s construction. AIRTC
Cadets at basic level, are required to master three knots and
two lashings. These are illustrated below in Figures 1 and 2.

Knots
6002. The three knots and their uses are;
a. Reef Knot; used to join two ropes of equal
diameter.
b. Rolling hitch; use to attach a rope to a pole
or spar where the direction of pull is to the
left or right along the pole, may also be used
as a non-slip hitch on the rope itself.
c. Round turn and two half hitches; used to
attach a rope to an eyelet, ring or spar. This
hitch will not jam when wet.
a. Reef knot;
b. Rolling Hitch; (in the illustration it is being used as
a non-slip titch on a tent peg)
c. Round turn and two half hitches;

Lashings
6003. The two lashings and their uses are;
a. Square lashing; used to lash two poles together at right angles across
each other. Start the lashing with a clove hitch on the pole that will
bear the strain, underneath the cross member. Continue as shown in
the diagram and finish with another clove hitch on the opposite side of
the same pole.
b. Diagonal lashing; used to lash two poles
together across each other when the angles are
not at 90 degrees. Start with either a clove
hitch (or timber hitch if known) across the
entire joint of both poles to be lashed.
Again, continue as shown and finish with a
clove hitch on the lower part of the lashing.
a. Square lashing;
b. Diagonal lashing;
