I've noticed that the British seem to be having a bit of a problem with this map. The most obvious is that no one seems to able to find the weapons caches when they're circled on the map.
The biggest problem is that people think that the caches are always in the circle itself. THEY ARE NOT. Most times they are just outside the ring. I find them pretty easy to find but I've just been a one man squad and destroyed more ammo dumps than whole squads looking for them.
The red circles are just an indicator, use your squad to search every building in the vicinity. Alot of them have roof access so don't forget to check above ground.

Remember that the cache's can be in buildings, top, bottom or even middle floors and some are even sitting out on a street corner. The best way of playing this map is to have a commander and using all your squads to go grid by grid and not worry about the bloody circles.

There are some kits that spawn in the mosque area, on the west side.
Also, the ammo dumps will have a kit or two on them. They will be placed in/on the ammo dump itself so just stand next to it and press 'g'

There is also a cache of weapons in a small underground bunker reached by a ladder in one of the larger indestructible buildings in what was the old village flag area north of the main city, close to one of the insurgent's permanent spawn's.

the trick as Brits is to not only find the weapons caches but to kill insergents and capture civilians.
You get intelligence points when doing this and it makes your life easier if you know the rough location of the weapons dumps.
Capturing a civi gives you 7 points so needing 30 for the first and then a little more each one can be obtained if you play the game mode the way it was intended.
If you shoot a civi you loose 3 intel points so telling team mates not to do it will also help.
After a while people will learn where the ammo dumps are and then the brits will find it easier.
