The major SF units around the world don't do any drill at all and manage to operate with a great esprit de Corps and without discipline problems. I think drill was fine in the days of 'forming square' etc at Waterloo, but these days is pretty obsolete in a modern army. The exception is specialist Guard and ceremonial units who do it for Royalty, special events and historical reasons. With other conventional units, the time spent doing drill could be minimized so they can concentrate on war fighting and training for war fighting. Doing drill is not being operationally focussed. Thoughts?
