Okay... here is some homework for US troops, especially for the 101st, over the winter months.

Download, read and practice the following so that when training starts up in the spring you will be a head of the game. Yes, training will start up in the spring and we will not just be covering tactics.

Infantry Drill Regulations

Yes Sir, Captain!

I don't know if I should say this, but I AM looking forward to this.
I'd like to learn the tactics and drills that soldiers learned. It will add more realism for me in our next game.
I'm glad we'r doing this, but I may regret saying that! haha.

WAIT FOOR IT.

To bad it is Yank Drill, but luckily Commonwealth Drill has not changed greatly. And Even more luckily, I remember how to do it/ Yell at people.

Ian, yes this would have been used at Ft Benning but by the US troops. As shiney suggests... Canadian and British drills would have been different.

But The Canadian/Brit troops are welcome to attend the Tac training.

I'll be getting these in the new year, to assist with British training methods:

http://www.mlrsbooks.co.uk/bookstore/index.php/prod716.html?&qry=infantry+training
http://www.mlrsbooks.co.uk/bookstore/index.php/prod437.html?&qry=infantry+training

Just don't have the dosh right now, if anyone else wants to get them instead please mention it so we don't end up with multiple copies.

Cheers,

Glynn.

I know it is Yank drill but members of 1 Can Para attended Fort Benning in the beginning before they adopted the British system, so it wouldn't be much of a stretch to do both, although now that I think about it why should I volunteer for such torture.

The Cdns only went there for the "jump" school. Drill & bush craft would still be Brit/Cdn. They did not adopt US trng except on how to exit a plane, all the "soldiering" skills would be learnt prior to "j" stage in Canada. Some may have been vets of Dunkirk, Norway or Mid-East.
