    Very credible, I can go with that , not that it makes any difference to me anymore.

    As per manual, both would salute
    Not what i was taught but again you seem to be gaining some credibilty on your information so I'll take it as read.

    Thanks again

    If there is an officer on parade, you (as in everyone) salute the officer if told to fall out. If the officer is to the left/right, you turn left/right (to face the officer) and salute, then fall out. Thus it's not unusual to see units who don't turn to the right and fall out doing just that (plus salute) when told to fall out when being mounted for security/guard
    .

    Interesting as if the troops are under command the senior bodies salutes as in two guys walking down the lines the one closest to the officer salues the other 'eyes right'.

    So why the change if a group is falling out?

    I'm not arguing the point juts outling protocol and enquiring to the variation i protocol.

    Yes the guard and escort thing I've done and seen but never really understood given that most times groups under command don't salute as individuals.

    Incidentally, does anyone have a copy of Training Regulation No2?

    Are you telling me that there is not some smart little ba**ard out there that wouldnt try to undermine an officer or nco.
    That is why pte's dont get manuals.

    Ive had this conversation/argument with other sgt's for years some units do it one way others another.

    I did hear once that if there is an officer on parade you turn to the right salute and disperse.
    If no officer pause three seconds and disperse.

    The confusion only exists when two or more subunits "work together"

    So,JNS, what you're saying is that, thirteen years after I left, there is still confusion about how to fall out from a parade.Back to DFTC or whoever is responsible for drill standards.After all, that's what a Standard is for.

    Are we going to have pte's dictating to nco's now.

    if the Army wanted Pte's to have the manual

    then the Army would require Privates to be able to read upon entry

    let them read the manual and next thing they will want to sit in the front of the Nissan

    tsk tsk pseeeeeeeh
