Management of Arms
Maniement des Armes
 

54. The platoon exercise shall be taught three men in a rank, with their elbows touching, and to the same afterwards in file.

55. The execution of each command shall be in consequence of one time, denoting the word of command divided into distinct motions, in order to impress the component parts more strongly on the minds of the recruits.

56. On hearing the last syllable of the word of command, the recruit shall execute the intended motion lively and smartly. On hearing the respective words two (deux), and three (trois), the remaining motions shall be gone through. When the recruit shall know thoroughly the position relating to each motion included in a word of command, they shall be instructed how to execute them without dwelling on each separately; but they must observe the mechanism of the motions, to be confirmed in the use of arms; and to avoid the inconvenience resulting from what is termed an unseen shifting of the musket, as if by slight of hand, from the proper into an inaccurate position.

Observations relative to the Manual and Platoon Exercises.

Observations relatives au maniement des armes.
 

142. These exercises often distort the position of the body of the recruit when not, previously, perfectly established. It becomes, therefore, necessary that the instructor should often, in the course of the lessons, attend to the accuracy of the proper position at shouldered arms, frequently making the recruit assume it.

143. Recruits are also very liable to throw the body into a curved shape, at the small of the back, and the body too far back, especially, when the first motion of loading is dwelt on too long. The instructor, on this account, ought not to retain them, too long, in this position.
