Hi a question on SA80/L96 drill. this occured during ACF camp but have posted it here rather than in ACF forum in the hope of a more accurate reply During the move from stand at ease to stand easy, the rifle is moved to the front of the body slowly, correct so far I hope? the argument is that on the retrun to stand at ease the rifle is moved in a fast movement. I was under the impression that this would cause the rifle to become unbalenced at fall to the ground. To clarify I found a WO2 Rifles and asked him, he had taken a pass out at Catterick and had used heavy drill not light. His reply was the arms moved bacl slowly to a count of 1000, 2000. I hope that I have explained this so it makes sense, so what is correct, my drill manual is so out of date it shows something very different. If anyone has access to the manual and could scan the relevant bits I would be very grateful.
