Well German George wasn't liked by the English mate !! Why do you think Mountbatten changed his name after ww1? The House of Hanover have never been the real royals here. They're imports after we gave Charles a haircut following the civil war in 1642. Scots had even less to like them for after the rebellion in 1745. Shame Bonnie Prince Charlie didn't make it to London they managed to get as far as Derby before they turned back.

Actually hoadie the scots and the irish are from different ancient tribes. The Irish are Picts an old established race living in Ireland pre the roman invasion.

Hoadie.
   A bit late in my reply but I have some drill manuals that I inherited from my father in law. He was a Sgt Gunnery Instructor in the brit. army.
   I have Small Arms Training. Rifle 1942.
              Gun Drill for Q.F. 25Pr Mark II Gun.1944
              Handbook of the Polsten, Machine Gun 20mm Mk1 1944
              Rifle Training For War, Local Defence Volunteers. Price 1/-
             and Manual of Modern Automatic Guns,Sten, Bren,Lewis, Thompson, Vickers, Browning.                                      Loading, Firing, Details of Mechanism, Stoppages and Immediate Action.  Stripping and Assemblling. Price 1/-
     No PC brigade in those days. The First Paragraph reads:-
    The Object Of Weapons Training
    The sole object of weapons training is to teach all ranks the most efficient way of handling weapons in order to kill the enemy. Instructors will always bear this fact in mind, and continually impress it upon those whom they instruct.  
  Priceless  articles to be handed on.

1935!
Wow, only 9p as well.Clap
 
I saved a copy of that, thanks. Not sure why I saved a copy, as like most I hated drill, & wasn't too thrilled about giving drill instruction later on.
It usually started with something like:
"Get fell in in 3 heaps!", or "You three! Form Fours."Clown

Did anyone else not get the images in the "  U.K. Manual of Elementary Drill (All Arms) 1935
" manual when downloading it?
I got 18 pages of text, but the images weren't there.

I don't think that PDF has pictures. This one here has some pictures.

Rifle Exercises (Arms Drill)

Port Arms

http://greatwarhistoricalsociety.com/Port_Arms.pdf

I have seen a Canadian Navy drill manual in PDF that has special on deck drilling which is slightly different.  I think the Canadian Navy at one point went to on deck drilling even on shore.
