If you're on Killick's course, LRCC, SRCC etc then it doesn't really matter since they'll send you round a few times anyway.

Apparently practice makes perfect. :salut:

If its a command for matelots does it matter? these guys are superb at doing there own thing on parade, dont discourage them, individual flair is a wonderful thing.

When stepping off from the position of 'attention' then you always step off on the left foot. (Trivia: The only time you step off on right foot is when you are on the left flank when acting as a pall bearer for a coffin.)

All orders are given on the right foot, in order that a 'check step' can be taken before executing the action. However if the squad are to move to the left on the march, then the order is given on the left foot, so the right foot takes the check step and the left foot is turned to the left before the rest of the body moved in that direct. "Eyes right" is also given on the right foot (however the front right marker maintains the "eyes front" in order for the rest of the squad to form up on his position).

Practice makes perfect; take your squad for a few manoeuvres prior to falling in before Divisions.

Qoute SPB.....(hehehehe)

What happens if before you get to the coffin you have to march over a wooden bridge and have to change step? then have to march over the wooden bridge again to the burial site, half way over the bridge you have to change step again with the coffin? :dwarf:

Fear not if your squad is a bag of crap on the way round, Matelots seem to have a knack of pulling it together just before flag alpha and falling apart just after flag bravo.
