On the word Two, raise the toes, and turn a quarter circle to the left on both Wheels, which must be pressed together.
Side 19 - ... the leg. The movement of the leg must spring from the haunch, and be free and natural. Both knees must be kept straight, except while the leg is being carried from the rear to the front, when the knee must necessarily be a little bent, to enable the foot to clear the ground. The foot must be carried...
Side 20 - Caution, — Balance Step, commencing with the Left Foot. On the word Front, the left foot will be raised from the ground by a slight bend of the knee, and carried gently to the front, without a jerk, the knee being gradually straightened as the foot is carried forward ; the foot to be turned out at the same angle as when halted, the sole parallel to and clear of the ground, the heel just in advance of the ^ line of the right toe.
Side 19 - 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.

Great care must be taken that the toes remain throughout at the proper angle ;...
Side 5 - ... 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.
Side 27 - Turn being given as the right foot is coming to the ground; after which they will turn to the front, the word Turn being given as the left foot is coming to the ground.
