The answer is that the individual effort alone does not bring survival or victory for the individual. The individual has to learn teamwork and the value of unified and co-operative action so thoroughly that they guide his later actions instinctively. Teamwork is any uniformed group that can be build on the parade square. Here all personnel learn that there can be no orderly movement of men or units without a precise and united effort, and that every man has to ply his part. b) Discipline is founded on drill. Drill has often been used as a forerunner to great battles, and during them it justified itself. When a victory is won, a parade, in whatever place, will most quickly restore the corporate unity of any body of men. When drill is taught or practiced those in command must stress its objective. It must never be used as a punishment but always as a means of raising the standards within the body of men. THE PARADE Below are laid some guiding principle for parade: a) A parade should start with the inspection of all who are in it. b) A strict observance of rank should be shown; thus a officer or soldier, when he wishes to either join or leave the parade, should report to the senior rank and ask permission to do so. c) Nobody should walk across a parade ground when drill in which they have no part, is taking place. d) Chief Drill Instructor should plan the form and purpose of a parade before hand. e) At the end of a parade all ranks dismiss to show respect to the senior rank on ground. THE QUALITIES OF AN INSTRUCTOR Drill is exacting. To teach it successfully you must have the following qualities: a) Patience – Never lose your temper b) Enthusiasm – You must instil your sound with a will to learn c) Consistency – Set yourself and the squad a standard. Do not deviate from it. d) Humanity – Understand the squad’s problems. Praise readily but do not become familiar, never humiliate individual members of the squad. e) Personality – As a drill instructor you must impress your squad with your personality and always control them fully. EXAMPLES Recruits imitate their instructors. It is by example that they will learn most. Therefore: a) When drilling a squad, stand at attention. b) When moving, march, as you would wish your squad to march. c) When demonstrating, do so accurately and, if the movement is with a rifle, whip, cane, etc., use the article and nothing else. d) Do not use bad language. e) Be impeccably turned out. f) Never exaggerate a movement of drill. Words Use short precise words to convey the speed of good drill (e.g. Words like Crack, Drive, Force, Grip). But remember, Action, not words. EAST AREA TRAINING TEAM FOOTDRILL INSTRUCTOR COURSE WORDS OF COMMAND INTRODUCTION All words of command must be clear and powerful since the way in which they are given affects the reaction, which they inspire. A word of command is divided into three parts: a) Introductory – This tells the squad what movement they are about to carry out; e.g. Move to the right in threes. b) Cautionary – The drawn-out and loud reminder to the squad; e.g. Right c) Executive – The loud, sharp command; e.g. Turn. Annex A lays down the equivalent Malay words of command. The Malay words of command are divided into the same three parts as given in para.s 8, a, b, and c, except that part of the executive command is combined with the cautionary. If the executive word command is in two syllabuses, the first syllabus forms part of the cautionary. If it is of three syllabus, the first two syllabus form part of the cautionary. E.g. INTRODUCTORY – BERGERAK KA-KANAN-BERTIGA-TIGA CAUTIONARY EXECUTIVE – KA-KANAN, PU………………… – …………………………...…SING Certain executive words of command are not broken down into syllables. TIMING OF WORDS OF COMMAND The cautionary word of command should be consistently drawn out over the equivalent of four paces in quick time. There should be a pause between it and the executive word of command of: a) At The Halt b) In Quick Time c) In Slow Time - The regulation pause - About four paces - About three paces DEVELOPMENT OF THE WORD OF COMMAND Instructors should be taught how to control a squad by the following two methods: a) Communication Drill i) ii) First demonstrate to the squad all words of command at the halt. Now conduct the squad while they give elementary words of command insisting on clarity and power from each man Divide the squad into two ranks, place them 30 yards (22.7m) apart, with 5 paces interval between each man. Each man should drill his opposite number 30 yards (22.7m) away without regard to the men to left or right of him. After not more than ten minutes, change the ranks, so that the men in both ranks have a chance of controlling their opposite number. iii) iv) v) b) Mutual drill i) ii) Form the squad into three ranks and explain the introductory word of command and the directing flank. Call out each member of the squad in turn to drill the squad and call out another member of the squad to watch and to be prepared to comment on his performance. STAND AT EASE FROM ATTENTION a) SENANG DI-RI ! (STAND AT EASE !) Keeping the right foot still and leg braced back. Bend the left knee and drive the left foot to the ground 12 inches (30cm) to the left of the right foot, at the same time force the arms behind the back by the shortest route, keeping them straight; place the back of the right hand in the palm of the left hand, with the right thumb crossed over the left, the weight of the body to the left so that it remains evenly balanced. The distance of 12 inches (30cm) is measured from the centre of the right heel to the centre of the left heel. Common Faults: i) Bending at the waist when moving. ii) Allowing the arms to bend or to leave the body when behind the back.

The squad should learn to call out ‘two-three-four’ for the regulation pause and they must learn to be still. TIME AND PACE It is important that every member in the squad know the lengths of pace and the rates of marching and timings of movement. So, an instructor must teach and make sure that your fellow members know them well. SEQUENCE OF INSTRUCTION Use the following sequence to conduct a lesson: a) b) c) d) e) Formation of squad Explanation Demonstration Question Practice FORMATION OF SQUAD a) Bear in mind the comfort of the squad – Make sure that they are not looking into the sun b) The formation in which they will learn the most quickly. i) Straight line Foot drill ii) Three ranks, open order, inclined Saluting at the Halt iii) Half Circle Rifle Exercises EXPLANATION Explain what you are about to teach and why it is necessary. DEMONSTRATION Break this down: a) Complete demonstration, shouting out the words of command. b) Demonstration by numbers, pointing out important details. c) Another complete demonstration. QUESTIONS After giving the first demonstration by numbers, ask the squad if they have any questions and do so after each successive demonstration by numbers. Ensure that the squad is standing easy when asking them question, PRACTICE After each demonstration by numbers practice the squad in that movement checking faults. Finally after demonstrating the whole movement practice the squad, judging the time. EAST AREA TRAINING TEAM FOOTDRILL INSTRUCTORS COURSE FOOTDRILL AT THE HALT INTRODUCTION Every movement in footdrill contains one or both of the two basic movements, which should be demonstrated and explained to a recruit before any other movements. Always start with your left foot forward, bend the knee, the leg raised in front of the body with the knee bent. The right foot is kept braced back with the foot flat on the ground. The foot hangs naturally, with the toe directly under the knee and 6 inches (15 cm) from the ground. The leg is then straightened and the foot driven to the ground so that on impact the ball and the hell of the foot reach the ground at the same time. The whole movement is completed at speed. Next, the left foot is kept braced back with the foot flat on the ground. The other leg shoots forward with the knee braced, ready to carry the weight of the body forward. POSITION OF ATTENTION AND STAND AT EASE ATTENTION Stand with the heels together, the feet turned out at an angle of 30 degrees; the knee braced, the body erect; the weight balanced evenly between the ball of the feet and the heels; the arms straight and held to the sides with the forearm tucked in behind the hip bone and the wrists straight; the hands closed with the thumbs vertical and facing to the front and the backs of the fingers touching the thigh just behind the seam of the trousers; shoulders held down and back to bring the chest to a normal position without straightening or stiffening. The head held up with the back touching the back of the collar and the eyes open, still, and looking just above their own height, the chin tucked in and the mouth closed. Common faults a) b) c) d) e) f) g) A strained position which constricts breathing. Allowing the body to sag and the shoulders and arms to creep forward. Roving eyes. Bending the wrist and failing to close the hands. Feet or body not square to front, heels not closed. Moving the right foot. Left foot less than 12 inches (30 cm) from the right foot and not at the correct angle. ATTENTION FROM AT EASE a) SEKUAD SEDI-A ! (SQUAD-ATTENTION!) Keep the right foot still and the leg braced back. Bend the left knee, pull the arms to the sides by the shortest route. Assume the position of attention. Common Faults: i) Allowing the arms to bend or to leave the body when coming to the sides. ii) Bending at the wrist, when moving. iii) Moving the right foot. FORMING UP IN THREE RANKS a) b) At the beginning of their training the squad must be introduced to their basic formation. To adopt this formation they will be placed in closed order in three ranks, (front, centre and rear). There will be an interval of one arm’s length (with hands close) between each man and a distance of 30 inches (75 cm) between ranks (measured from the heels of one rank to the toes of the rank behind it). The distance in close order may be measured by the man in the right hand file raising their right arms inline with their breast pocket. The knuckles of the closed hand should just fail to touch the shoulder of the man in front. DRESSING a) Within a body of men who are drilling, every man must be in line with, and at the correct interval from the man to the left or right of him, he must also be directly behind, and at the correct distance from, his equivalent in the rank in front of him. This is dressing. The squad will be taught dressing by numbers during the early stages of their training. b) i) LURUS DENGAN NOMBOR, KA-KANAN LURUS – SATU! (DRESSING BY NUMBER, RIGHT DRESS – ONE!) All except the right hand man of each rank turn their heads to the right; those in the front rank extend the right arm with the hand close, the back of the hand uppermost and the knuckles touching the point of the shoulder of the man to their right, and keeping the arm parallel to the ground. The right hand file raised the right arm forward in line with their breast pocket with the knuckles of the closed hand just failing to reach the shoulder of the man in front. Common Faults: a) Sluggish movement of the arm or head. b) Not looking up or square to the right ii) SEKUAD – DUA (SQUAD – TWO) everyone, except the right hand man of the front rank, bends the left knee and correct his dressing by taking short, quick steps until, whilst remaining erect, he can just see the lower part of the face of the man, two men away from him and rear rank ensure that they are directly behind their equivalent in the rank in front by glancing out the corner of their left eye. Common Faults: a) b) c) d) Craning forearm. Not keeping the shoulders square to the front. Shuffling. Unnecessary movement. NOTE: I) Be patient and encouraging. II) When correcting, be sure that you address your remarks to the whole squad, since they can all learn by one’s mistakes. iii) PANDANG KE-HADAPAN – PANDANG! (EYES-FRONT!) Each file may turn their heads to the front in succession from the point by which they are dressing. GETTING ON PARADE To practice this movement the squad will be standing easy, three ranks in close order with the front rank facing the direction which they will get on parade. The right guide or right hand man of the front rank acts as the right marker. a) KANAN – PENANDA ! (RIGHT – MARKER !) i) On the command KANAN (RIGHT) the whole squad comes At Ease. ii) On the command PENANDA ! (MARKER!). The right marker springs to attention, march forward, halts on the fifteenth face, and stands at ease. b) MASUK BARIS ! (GET ON – PARADE !) Both the right marker and the squad spring to attention. The squad marches forward, halts on the fifteenth pace, and stands at ease. Note: The distance, which the squad comes forward, may be shortened if there is not enough space. NUMBERING AND PROVING A squad will always be Numbered from the right in order that a member of it may be addressed as Number ??? of ??? rank. a) DARI KANAN – BILANG ! (FROM THE RIGHT – NUMBER !) i) Each man in the front rank will call out his number in succession from the right keeping his head and eyes still. ii) The men in the centre and rear ranks will take the number of their equivalent in the front rank. iii) If an error in the numbering is made, the instructor will call out SEMULA (AS YOU WERE) followed by the last correct number given. The man so named will call out his number again and the front rank will take up the numbering from him. PROVING If a squad is to be divided into two parts, the instructor will first number the squad. He will then select the left-hand man of the right half squad, by calling out his number. a) NOMBOR – DUA BELAS ! (NUMBER TWELVE !) i) The man so indicated raised his left forearm to the horizontal, keeping the left elbow still, palm of the hand facing to the right, fingers straight and together. ii) If the instructor requires more than two parts or divisions, he will call out NOMBOR ENAM, DUA BELAS DAN LAPAN BELAS ! (NUMBER SIX , TWELVE AND EIGHTEEN !) and men so indicated act as above. b) KIRI PADA SEPARUH KANAN SEKUAD ATAU KIRI PADA NO. ??? DIVISION ! (LEFT OF THE RIGHT HALF – SQUAD OR LEFT OF NO. ??? DIVISION !) On the executive word of command, the left-hand man of the right half squad or the left hand man of division cut their forearm to their sides. SIZING a) Body of men drills better together and gives a better impression to the spectator if it is correctly sized. A recruit squad will be sized early in its training. Level ground should be used for sizing. b) A body of men is sized either Tallest on the right, shortest on the left, Tallest on the left shortest on the right, of Tallest on the flanks, shortest in the centre. It is done by forming everyone into a single rank and grading them using the top of the headdress as a guide. c) The sequence for Tallest on the flanks, shortest to in the centre is: i)YANG TINGGI KE-KANAN, RENDAH KE-KIRI, DALAM SATU BARISAN – PARAS ! (TALLEST ON THE RIGHT, SHORTEST ON THE LEFT, IN SINGLE RANK – SIZE !) The squad turns to their right, count the regular pause and then break off and obey the command. When the instructor has graded everyone into his correct position, he will then continue. ii) DARI KANAN SATU DUA– BILANG! (FROM THE RIGHT – NUMBER !) iii) NOMBOR GANJIL SATU LANGKAH KE-HADAPAN, NOMBOR GENAP SATU LANGKAH KE-BELAKANG – GERAK ! (ODD NUMBERS ONE PACE FORWARD – EVEN NUMBERS ONE PACE BACK – MOVE !) The instructor must check this movement. iv)ORANG DI SEBELAH KANAN DIAM ! BARISAN HADAPAN KANAN PUSING! BARISAN BELAKANG KIRI PUSING! KANAN DAN KIRI – PU….SING !(STAND FAST THE RIGHT HAND MAN, ODD NUMBERS TO THE RIGHT, EVEN NUMBERS TO THE LEFT, RANKS RIGHT AND LEFT – TURN !) v) JADIKAN TIGA BARISAN – CEPAT JA….LAN ! (FORM THREE RANKS– QUICK MARCH !) 01. The even numbers wheel through 180 degrees and follow the last odd number. 02. No. 1 remains as right hand man, No. 3 becomes right hand man of the centre rank. No. 5 the right hand of the rear rank, No. 7 becomes No. 2 of the front rank, etc. 03. On halting in position each man turns to his front, takes up his own dressing by the right and remains at attention. OPEN AND CLOSE ORDER a) A squad is always inspected and often drilled in open order (i.e. with a distance of 60 inches (150 cm) between ranks, measured from the heels from one rank to the toes of the rank behind it). To attain open order, the front rank moves forward one pace of 30 inches (75 cm) and the rear rank moves back one pace of 30 inches (75 cm), the centre rank remain still. b) To teach this movement, the instructor should make the squad act first as the front rank and then as the rear rank. h) DALAM BUKA BARISAN, KE-KANAN LURUS – SATU ! (IN OPEN ORDER, RIGHT DRESS – ONE !) 01. The front rank shoot the left foot forward a 30 inches (75 cm) pace placing the foot flat on the ground. Then Bend the right knee. The arms remain to the side throughout. 02. The rear rank take a pace of 30 inches (75 cm) backward, pivoting from the ball of the feet to the heel, poising the body forward and keeping the knees braced. Similarly they Bend the right knee. *Common faults : 1. Allowing the left knee to bend. 2. The arms not kept still to the side. ii) SEKUAD – DUA ! (SQUAD – TWO !) All except the right hand man to each rank turn their heads to the right; those in the front rank extend the right arm with the hand closed, the back of the hand uppermost and the knuckles touching the point of the shoulder of the man to the right. iii) SEKUAD – TIGA ! (SQUAD – THREE !) Everyone except the right hand man of the front rank, bend the left knee corrects his dressing by taking short quick steps until whilst remaining erect, he can just see the lower part of the face of the man two away from him. At the same time, those in the centre rank and rear rank ensure that they are directly behind their equivalent in the rank in front by glancing out of the corner of their left eye. iv) PANDANG KE-HADAPAN, PANDANG ! (EYES – FRONT !) Turn the head sharply to the front at the same time return the hands to the side, keeping the arms straight. v) DALAM TUTUP BARISAN, KE-KANAN – LU-RUS ! (IN CLOSE ORDER, RIGHT- DRESS !) The reverse of the open order. Note: In two ranks only, the rear rank acts on the open and close order. TURNING BY NUMBERS a) BER-PUSING DENGAN NOMBOR, KE-KANAN PUSING – SATU ! (TURNING BY NUMBERS, RIGHT TURN – ONE !) Turn through 90 degrees to the right, using the right heel and left toe and keeping the weight of the body on the right foot. Both knees are braced back and the body is erect. At the end of the movement, the right foot is flat on the ground and the left leg is to the rear with the heel raised. b) SEKUAD – DUA ! (SQUAD - TWO !) Bend left knee and resume the position of attention. Note: The introductory Turning by Numbers should not be repeated for each successive turn by numbers. TURNING ABOUT BY NUMBERS a) KE-BELAKANG PUSING – SATU ! (ABOUT TURN – ONE !) As for Right turn – One but turn clockwise through 180 degrees. To maintain balance, lock the thighs together. b) SEKUAD – DUA ! (SQUAD – TWO !) As for Squad – Two of the right turn. Note: i) Point out the difference in dressing and covering when inclined. Each man’s right shoulder must be assigned with the centre of the back of the man next to him, and in the case of those in the centre and rear ranks, the left shoulder must cover the centre of the back of the man originally covered off. ii) When the squad requires to turn back to its original position, the full words of command should be given. TURNING AND JUDGING THE TIME a) The squad will then practice all turning judging the regulation pause between movements. Common faults: i) ii) iii) iv) The weight not being on the forward foot in the first movement. Not making a full turn with body and shoulders in the first movement. Moving the arms, particularly during the second movement. Bending at the waist at the second movement. EAST AREA TRAINING TEAM FOOTDRILL INSTRUCTOR COURSE SALUTING INTRODUCTION Rational for salute – traces of the origin of saluting can be seen in the conventional exchange of this courtesy between officers and also indicate friendly intentions. The present day, salute is a symbol of greeting of mutual respect, trust and confidence, initiated by the junior in rank but with to less dignity on either side. All officers, both senior and junior will salute when the National Anthem is played or sung. SALUTING TO THE FRONT The hand salute is a one-count movement. On the command of execution, raise the right hand to the beret, and with tips of forefingers touching the rim of the beret slightly to the right of the right eye. The upper arm is horizontal with the elbow inclined slightly forward and the hand and the wrist straight. Returning to the original position is a one-count movement, cut across the chest and return your hand smartly to your side, resuming the position of attention. BY NUMBERS Saluting should be taught initially by numbers. To enable the squad to move freely, they should be inclined and in open order. (SALUTING BY NUMBERS, SALUTE TO THE FRONT – ONE !) i) On the order – ONE, raise the right hand from the side to the front of the beret with the tip of the forefinger touching the beret’s rim slightly to the right and in line with the right eye. The upper arm is horizontal and parallel to the ground with the elbow inclined slightly forward and the hand and wrist straight. ii) HORMAT DENGAN NOMBOR, HORMAT KE-HADAPAN-DUA! (SALUTING BY NUMBERS, SALUTE TO THE FRONT-TWO!) i) On the order –TWO, return hand by the shortest way, cut across the chest and return hand smartly to your side and assume attention position. Common faults: i) ii) Upper arms are not horizontal and parallel to the ground. Not returning to the position of attention smartly with the right hand to the side. SALUTING TO THE LEFT AND RIGHT When saluting to the right, the position of the right hand is the same as in saluting to the front, except that the head and eyes are turned to the right at the person being saluted. Likewise when saluting to the left, the right hand is the same as in saluting to the front except that the hands and eyes are turned to the left at the person being saluted. SALUTING TO THE FRONT When delivering a message or speaking to an officer, the man approaches, halts, salutes, delivers the message or speaks, salutes, turns in the direction in which he is to move, and marches away. HORMAT, KE-HADAPAN – HORMAT ! (SALUTE TO THE FRONT–SALUTE !) * Given as the left foot hits the ground. a) b) c) d) e) f) g) Halt Salute to the front One step forward Deliver speech One step backward Salute to the front About/right turn Note: Judge the regulation pause between each movement. MENERIMA HADIAH, HORMAT KE HADAPAN HORMAT(RECEIVING AWARD/PRIZE,SALUTE TO THE FRONT-SALUTE!) *Given as the left foot hits the ground. a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i) j) k) Halt Salute to the front One step forward Extend left hand for handshake Extend both hands out(right palm over left) Hold the prize on the right hand first Extend left hand for handshake Transfer prize to left hand One step backward Salute About/right turn Note: Left handshake is only for scouts. If you are receiving colour awards, medals or badges, do not extend both hands out. Remember not to swing your left hand, which is carrying the prize. EYES RIGHT AND LEFT A formed body of men on the march pays compliment to the left or right in the following ways: DARI KANAN, PANDANG KE-KANAN – PAN-DANG ! (BY THE RIGHT, EYES – RIGHT !) Given as the left heel strikes the ground. When the left heel next strikes the ground, turn the head through 90 degrees to the right. Continue to swing the arms throughout. The notes and common faults are as for the slow time. Common faults: i) ii) iii) Shortening the length of pace and losing balance and thus direction Leaning back Not looking upwards and at the object of the eyes right. NOTE: i) The right hand man or right guide will look to his front throughout. ii) Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers in command of men will salute. PANDANG KE-HADAPAN – PANDANG ! (EYES – FRONT !) Given as the left heel strikes the ground. When the left heel next strikes the ground, turn the head to the front. SALUTING WHEN IN PLAIN CLOTHES AND WITHOUT HEADDRESS A uniformed man, without head-dress, whether in uniform or plain clothes, salute an officer in the following ways: i) When he passes an officer, he will return his arms to the position of attention and turns his head in the direction of the officer on the left foot. He will take five paces in this position and return his head to the front on the sixth pace, When he meets an officer or is passed by one, he will stand to attention facing that officer. ii) SALUTING WITH THE LEFT HAND A uniformed man who has injured his right hand or arm will salute with his left hand. EAST AREA TRAINING TEAM FOOTDRILL INSTRUCTOR COURSE MARCHING INTRODUCTION Drill on the move is conducted by marching in either quick or slow time. The quick march is normally carried out 120 paces to the minute, although recruits should start their training by marching up to 140 paces to the minute to encourage ability and alertness. The slow march is primarily used in ceremonial drills and not in the syllabus of the EATT footdrill course.
