GENERAL<br />

The drill prescribed herein is designed for general use in the <strong>Pathfinder</strong> Clubs across West Indies<br />

Union and may be adapted to any type of parades. Most of the explanation is of a specific nature with<br />

the use of phraseology which gives sufficient latitude for adaptation.<br />

PURPOSE<br />

<strong>Drill</strong> has many purposes, contrary to popular belief. <strong>Drill</strong> accustoms individuals to working as a<br />

member of a team, moving confidently together in unison and to a measured cadence. <strong>Drill</strong> is also used<br />

to move a unit from one place to another in a standard, orderly manner. <strong>Drill</strong> also teaches discipline by<br />

instilling habits of precision and automatic response to orders. <strong>Drill</strong> improves morale by developing<br />

team spirit. It also gives younger <strong>Drill</strong> Masters the confidence of command and experience in giving<br />

proper commands, making presentations, give bible studies and to preach.<br />

AIM<br />

1. TO PRODUCE A PATHFINDER AND OR MASTER GUIDE WHO IS PROUD,<br />

DISCIPLINE, ALERT AND OBEDIENT.<br />

2. TO PROVIDE THE BASIS OF TEAMWORK.<br />

The Qualities of an Instructor<br />

<strong>Drill</strong> is exciting. To teach it successfully you must have the following qualities:<br />

A. PATIENCE Never lose your temper.<br />

B. ENTHUSIASM You must fire your <strong>Pathfinder</strong> with the will to learn<br />

C. CONSISTENCY Set yourself and your <strong>Pathfinder</strong> a standard.<br />

Do not deviate from it.<br />

D. HUMANITY Understand your <strong>Pathfinder</strong>’s problem. Praise readily but do not become<br />

familiar; never humiliate individual <strong>Pathfinder</strong>s of the squad.<br />

E. PERSONALITY As a drill instructor you must impress your <strong>Pathfinder</strong>s with your<br />

personality and always control them.<br />

Eg. <strong>Pathfinder</strong>s imitate their instructors. It is by example that they will<br />

learn most. Therefore when drilling a squad, stand at attention, and<br />

when demonstrating do so accurately.<br />

There are three parts to a command<br />

1. The introductory or preparatory States the movement to be carried out. Eg. <strong>Pathfinder</strong>s will move<br />

to the right in threes.<br />

2. The Cautionary The Long drawn out part of the command getting them<br />

ready to work. Eg. RIGHHHHHHHHT.<br />

3. The Executioner Tells when the movement is to be carried out and sharply.<br />

Eg. Turn. i<br />

A Command must be given in the following sequence<br />

C – CLEAR<br />

L – LOUD<br />

A – AS AN ORDER<br />

P – WITH PAUSES<br />

NOTE FOR COMMANDERS<br />

Good posture, proper breathing, and the correct use of the throat and mouth muscles help develop a<br />

commander's voice. If commands are properly given, they will be heard by all <strong>Pathfinder</strong>s and Master<br />

1


Guides on the parade.<br />

• Projecting the voice enables one to be heard at maximum range without undue strain.<br />

• The throat, mouth, and nose act as amplifiers. They give fullness and help project the voice. In<br />

giving commands the throat should be relaxed. The lower jaw and lips should be loose. The<br />

mouth should open wide and the vowel sounds should be prolonged. Consonant and word<br />

endings should be curt and cut off sharply.<br />

• The position of attention is the proper posture for giving commands.<br />

LENGTH OF PACE<br />

QUICK AND SLOW TIME---------30 inches<br />

STEPPING OUT----------------------33 inches<br />

STEPPING SHORT------------------21 inches<br />

DOUBLE TIME----------------------40 inches<br />

SIDE PACE---------------------------12 inches<br />

TIMING OF FOOT DRILL<br />

A pause is judged between movements of foot drill which would allow 40 movements to be completed<br />

in a minute; this is called the regulation pause.<br />

THE INTRODUCTORY WORD OF COMMAND<br />

Before a squad is turned in any direction the instructor indicates that direction by word of command.<br />

The two diagrams below show how this is done.<br />

Figure 1<br />

“SQUAD WILL RETIRE”<br />

Move to the right in threes ************************ Move to the left in threes<br />

************************<br />

* ************************<br />

Figure 2<br />

“SQUAD WILL ADVANCE”<br />

Since it will be impractical to give the word of command “MOVE TO THE RIGHT IN THREES,<br />

LEFT TURN!” the following words of command therefore are used when the squad is in the retired<br />

position.<br />

“SQUAD WILL RETIRE”<br />

“Squad will move to the left” ************************ Squad will move to the right<br />

************************<br />

* ************************<br />

“SQUAD WILL ADVANCE”<br />

* Front Rank * Center Rank * Rear Rank * Right Marker<br />

THE EXECUTIONER<br />

Before the squad can move in another direction, or do another drill movement on the march, the<br />

executioner has to be given. Below is the foot that you would give the executioner on in slow or quick<br />

march.<br />

THE ONLY WAY TO PERFECT DRILL IS BY PRACTICE!!!!<br />

AIDS TO INSTRUCTIORS<br />

The standards for the time and length of pace to be used in drill are provided by three items:<br />

a. Metronome (assisted by the drum)<br />

b. Pace Stick<br />

c. Pace Ladder<br />

These aids must be used frequently to ensure uniform timing of drill between units, their regular use by<br />

instructors when teaching is of great importance.<br />

THE METRONOME<br />

The metronome sets the time both for marching and for swagger drill. It can be set to the desired<br />

number of beats to the minute. As it is a delicate instrument, it must be checked frequently with a stop<br />

watch.<br />

Without using this instrument, it is impossible to maintain the correct timing for any long period, both<br />

in the personnel under command and among the instructors who are required to call out the time.<br />

THE PACE STICK<br />

The pace stick measures the correct length of pace. When it is used in conjunction with the metronome<br />

and the drum, a high standard of marching, rhythm, and uniformity can be obtained. This is necessary,<br />

not only for ceremonial purposes, but also to reduce fatigue on long periods of marches and to set the<br />

standard of accuracy required.<br />

It is the only items of the three which the instructor must manipulate himself. Constant<br />

practice is required to master the swinging of the stick.<br />

To train his squad the instructor should march alongside the leading <strong>Pathfinder</strong> or Master Guide using<br />

the pace stick to control the length of pace. The natural tendency is to step too long,<br />

causing bad marching positions and straggling in the squad. As progress is made, the instructor should<br />

check the length of pace by marching behind the squad using the pace stick. He should explain to the<br />

squad any faults which occur in the length of pace so that the correct pace becomes a habit.<br />

CARRYING THE PACE STICK<br />

Closed, the stick is normally carried either at the trail or under the left arm. At the trail, it is swung<br />

with the right arm from front to rear and kept parallel with the ground. Under the left arm, it is kept<br />

parallel with the ground; the point of balance under the left armpit; shoes to the rear, the head of the<br />

stick held in the left hand in a ‘Y’ grip, fingers together and on the left with the head of the stick inline<br />

with the tip of the middle finger, extended and slanting upwards, thumb straight and on the<br />

4


ight. When saluting with the pace stick carried under the arm, the right hand comes up to execute the<br />

salute. To order arm the right hand is cut to the side. If the stick is held at the side in the position of<br />

attention, it is passed under the left armpit, shoes to the rear. Left hand hold the stick in a ‘Y’ grip as<br />

stated above and the right arm cut to the side before making the salute. On completion of the salute, the<br />

head of the stick is grasped with the right hand and the stick is brought across the front of the body to<br />

resume the position of attention.<br />

Open, the stick is held at the right side as follows:<br />

'STAND AT - EASE'<br />

The stick is held in the right hand just below the apex, back of the hand to the right, fingers round both<br />

shafts, thumb nearest the body round the rear shaft, elbow against the side. The rear shaft is upright<br />

with the shoe slightly to the right and to the front of the right toe. The forward leg is extended to the<br />

front, shoe off the ground. The left arm is held at the side.<br />

ATTEN - TION<br />

Swing the forward leg of the stick to the rear by rotating the stick.<br />

QUICK (OR SLOW) - MARCH<br />

Step off with the left foot. Swing the rear leg or the stick forward by twisting with the fingers and<br />

thumb, and rotating the free leg of the stick on the outwards and forwards. Place the swinging shoe on<br />

the ground straight in front of the shoe already on the ground. Continue this movement until halted or<br />

as long as required. When halting, the stick is held in the position of attention detailed above.<br />

MARCHING POSITION<br />

When ceasing to swing, while still marching, the stick is lifted so that the forearm is parallel with the<br />

ground, hand in front of the right hip, thumb and forefinger round the forward shaft, which is held<br />

upright, other fingers round the cover shaft.<br />

NOTE: Instructors must be able to swing the pace stick with either hand.<br />

THE PACE LADDER<br />

Distances of 100 and 200 meters should be marked out on the drill ground at intervals of one pace<br />

(75cm), using bricks or other suitable marks, to form a 'ladder', to practice in keeping the correct time<br />

and pace.<br />

The squad should be formed up at right angles to the ladder with the instructor standing on it. He will<br />

set the time and length of pace, the squad keeping its alignment by the instructor.<br />

Instruction on the pace ladder should be carried out collectively and later individually in slow and<br />

quick time.<br />
