Left or Right Shoulder Forward

After your help again chaps!

Please can you point me to the source of the command "left" or "right shoulders forward"?

I can only find reference to left or right wheel in Dundas (pages 49 and 50) - I fear I have missed something in the remaining 450 pages!!

You skipped over it, Pete.  Back up to S22 in Part I, Recruit, Without Arms, that deals with wheels on a moveable pivot.  Pages 19 & 20 in both the Manual and Platoon Exercises (1807) and the Rules and Regulations (1811 edition).

Thanks Greg. I was looking at a much earlier document. This one (1807) is much more user friendly.
