Right I don't know if this was a joke to see if we do it around battalion or if it's a genuine drill movement but hopefully some guards lads can put this right. This sounded a bit l strange to me and some of the other lads on the cadre but the drill instructor seemed pretty sure this was the correct way to salute when at the halt. When mingling about in a group around battalion (or anywhere) and a officer walks past to the left or right of the group the drill pig said the correct way to salute him was.... Head and eyes over to the left/ right arm comes up to salute as usual..... BUT your left leg comes forward as if u where marching but stays firm on the heel with the toe pointing upward. Then when the officer walks by, slam the tabs in and continue your discussion about the fat bird you pumped the night before. Anyone else herd this before? Let the slating begin!!
