Drill Question

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by biscuits, Oct 31, 2005.

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. I|ve been jiffed to do PSM duty on Remembrance Sunday, and have never done a drill course. The trouble is, I`m at a Tri service establishment. My (RAF) OC wants to end the parade with "Carry On!", but I think it should be either "Parade Dismiss" or "Fall Out". Any ideas? 8O
     
  2. For the RAF shouldn't it be "Carry On Chaps!"?
     
  3. Forgive me a cruel chuckle as how many of us have been there! You have the unique oppurtunity to make a complete tit of yourself on a Tri-service scale,brilliant!
    To encompass all service foibles it is 'Parade dismiss'
    Fcuking Carry On indeed!!!

    I had to do one with the Skates a couple of years ago.

    What is all this "Remoooooove CAPS!" crap?

    And the skates don't wear poppies.
     
  5. Its easy, if your the man, its 'Parade Dismiss' and dont forget, Army never take hats off on parade, so you might have that problem too.

    During a religious service on a parade such as remembrance or drumhead the AMS (males only) always remove headress. I wonder is this a variation from regiment to regiment?

    Nope, we salute with headress on, so at no time do we take it off. so it stays on!!! and the AMS is who exactly?
    If anyone wants to pay respect, then we can throw one up.
     
  8. Thanks, I was aware of that. On the plus side, most of the attendees will be officers, so they probably won't be too aware of whats happening.
     
  9. Damn - was getting all excited cos I thought I had found a power tool forum. Bl**dy drill indeed!!
     
  10. Parade removes headdress prior to giving "Three Cheers".
    Individuals remove headdress while on parade prior to receiving, e.g., roses on Minden Day.
    Soldiers parading for CO's or OC's Orders are marched in (at the rapid rate) sans headdress.
     
  11. Errr. I think you'll find when you're on parade you won't be doing any saluting to any odd job who walks past...

    AMS is Army Medical Service. Headdress should be removed during prayers for defo. Unless you have a regimental thing...but I think for most, remove headdres except for the ladies
     
  12. If we never have to take headress off, why are we taught on the AAADI Cse, the correct words of command to carryout that very action....?
     
  13. Isn't it the case that during a church service, the Padre invites soldiers to remove headdress, but doesn't actually order it?

    As the soldiers forming the escort at a military funeral are bareheaded, there must be a command to get them in this state.

    It should be "Take off, 26!"
