Side 6 - The exact squareness of the shoulders and body to the front is the first and great principle of the position of a soldier. The heels must be in a line and closed ; the knees straight ; the toes turned out, so that the feet may form an angle of...
Side 349 - Captains will go to the head of their respective wings, and companies, to see it regularly executed, if ordered. They will remain at the spot, till the whole of their wings or companies have passed, and then will resume their stations in the rear. 7. It is proved that the defiling of one battalion on the march, even if done with as much promptitude as is practicable on such occasions, will cause a delay of ten minutes ; one such obstacle, if not passed without defiling, would therefore delay the...
Side 21 - Balance Step. The object of the balance step is to teach the soldier the free movement of his legs, preserving at the same time perfect squareness of shoulders, and steadiness of body ; no labour must be spared to attain this object, which forms the very foundation of correct marching.
Side 222 - ... skirmishers have suffered considerable loss, when they are fatigued by continued rapid movements, or when their supply of ammunition is getting low, it will be advisable to relieve them. The most convenient method of effecting the relief is to order the support to extend and relieve its skirmishers. When retiring, the successive relief of the skirmishers by supports, is the most effectual manner of keeping an enemy in check. The officer commanding a support should therefore be constantly on the...
Side 33 - ... and the right-hand man will close on the squad. In like manner the squad must be taught to dress up, man by man, by the left ; also to dress back, man by man, by the right and left. .. , ; ..2. Dressing together. — The men must next be taught to...
Side 349 - Whenever a stream, ditch, bank, or other obstacle is to be crossed, it will be generally found, that instead of defiling or diminishing the front, the very contrary should be done ; not only by causing the files of each section to extend gradually before they arrive at the ditch, or obstacle, but even by forming sub-divisions or companies.
Side 11 - I. In going through the turnings, the left heel must never quit the ground : but the soldier must turn on it as on a pivot, the right foot being drawn back to turn the body to the right, and carried forward to turn it to the left : the body must incline forward, the knees being kept straight. In the first of all the following motions, the foot is to be carried back, or brought forward, without a jerk, the movement being from the hip ; so that the body may be kept perfectly steady until it commences...
Side 7 - ... the hand open, thumb to the front and close to the forefinger, fingers lightly touching the thigh : the hips rather drawn back, and the breast advanced, but without constraint ; the body straight and inclining forward, so that the weight of it may bear principally on the fore part of the feet; the head erect, but not thrown back, the chin slightly drawn in, and the eyes looking straight to the front.
