Lower on your Arms reversed

#1
Hi Chaps, currently doing a course on air brushing and my project is to do with the sacrifices that the British Army make. I want to paint a soldier who is in the drill position of lower on your arms reversed. Tried for the last 2 hours to find an image but have failed miserably. Can anyone help. Thanks in advance

I seem to recall that this was actually 'Rest on your arms, reversed'. However that was before the SA80 came in and it became impossible to actually rest the weapon.

Still if you look for that you may be a bit more successful.

Rest on Your Arms Reversed - I still rememebr the last line of instruction, 'Hassume A Mournful Countenance'. Muzzle of Lee Enfield resting on left toecap (except we don't have toecaps in the Navy).

It was/is 'rest on your arms.....reverse..' a clicky collection of spazzy movements with a DP .303 which if executed wrongly left a sexy welt across your left shin courtesy of a No 4 Mk 1.

Horrible drill movement, tipping your head slowly to the speed of 8 marching paces as your final movement finished off a spectacularly gay and tedious funeral drill.....

There are news video clips of a recent Coldstream Funeral. The Funeral Party are from No.7 Company, Coldstream Guards.

If you go to youtube and type Lance Corporal James Hill, you will find many video tributes to this young Coldstreamer. Please watch them.

The video clip by Manchesternews has footage of the party at rest on your arms reversed.

If you decide to use this as a basis for your work, you may like to consider making a small donation to The Coldstream Guards Charity fund.

Thank you Jacob, watched video as suggested and l cannot use the material as I want to have a more general picture to represent the whole Army, so was hoping for soldier in dessies wearing beret or similar. Will still donate if you can post a link. Cheers Bernard
