PART I. GENERAL OUTLINE OF A SOLDIER'S LIFE

Training at the Regimental Depôt

After Réveille, the first duty is to tidy up the barrack room ; the bed cots are put up, blankets and sheets neatly folded, and the breakfast is prepared. This is done by orderlies, told off in rotation. In the further room can be seen some of the trophies on the wall, won by the Company occupying the room, at football, cricket, &c.

The early morning's drill is devoted to teaching the recruit to salute "by numbers." His physical development is improved by the "Extension" motions; he is taught to turn, and finally his rifle and bayonet are issued to him, and he is instructed in the " Manual Exercise."

Life at a Regimental Depôt-Drilling the Awkward Squad

THREE different drills are seen. The first is executed by men who have just joined and arc practising turning and saluting. The picture then changes to one illustrating the drill of soldiers of one week's standing, practising the extension exercise, while the picture concludes with some manual exercises with rifle and bayonet.
