Abstract: This paper continues the investigations of this series. Suppose GF is a field for a prime -is a nilpotent; is a nonsingular symplectic space with form ; and is a faithful irreducible -module where fixes the form . This paper describes completely the structure of and its representation upon when is symplectic primitive. This latter condition is described in §4 and is a primitivity condition.
