About Turn, anti-clockwise

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. ******* Hell, look at that turnout. Grenadiers, is he?
     
  2. Very smart indeed!
    I particularly like the way he was bouncing the butt of his rifle on the road as an aid to marching...the little one I mean.
     
  3. The large wooden top has been issued a proper rifle I see! The small one seems to have been issued with a slightly inferior weapon!:eye:
     
  4. Is the little fellow carrying a SLR? If so Good Drills to him.

    Doh...just noticed the big un is also carrying the rifle of rifles...10 lashes with a wet noodle to me...
     
  5. That's awesome.

    And top drills from the guy... I think I'd fall over trying to do it 'wrong' like he did.

    Why is there an empty box for the little 'un? Shouldn't there be a guard in it.
     
  6. Wonderful. Wonder if the little chap ever signed up!


    Doing it with a finger or two,eyes scrunched a bit near the screen, trying to make sure I don't make a mess or mistake in the process.
     
  7. He's brill! Marching into the box and turning round would bring a tear to an RSM's eye.
     
  8. I know we don't deal in facts on here, but the left about turn is taught as part of normal ceremonial double sentry drill. So to throw in a left about turn to avoid the little lad is no big thing.
     
  9. Is it?

    I know of the 'ceremonial about turn' which goes to the left bu that is different altogether.
     
  10. He'd mastered the rudiments of drill, in few minutes, at the age (if I have it right) of 2.

    On that basis alone he outshines most Guardsmen - and Grens in p'tick'ler, who seem capable (those commissioned and OR) of spending entire careers obsessing about foot drill to the point that nowt else is of any value . . . .

    Crackin' vid tho :-D
     
  11. How long was he on stag for - looks a little knackered towards the end - what the hell happened to his relief - Guard Commander needed to have got a grip.
     
  12. Excellent. I've not seen that video posted on ARRSE for, oooooh, at least 3 weeks now.
     
  13. And your point is?
     
  14. Ah! The Black Arts of the Foot Guards: good stuff! :)
