PART I. GENERAL OUTLINE OF A SOLDIER'S LIFE

Fire at the Range

The training in Musketry is very carefully carried out by special Instructors who have passed a qualifying examination at the Hythe School. This examination, which is generally"considered the most severe a Non-commissioned Officer has to undergo, includes the mathematical and scientific principles involved, the use of range-finders and machine guns, the Musketry regulations and duties on the Range. On re-joining his Regiment an Instructor becomes responsible for its practical training, and for that education of the soldier in judging distances so essential to accurate firing. At the Ranges volley and independent firing is practised, at distances varying from 200 to 1200 yards.

Prizes are given to encourage the soldier to take an interest in shooting, and the Marksman's Badge of crossed rifles is a coveted distinction. The best marksman in the Battalion is entitled to  wear a crown over the badge, and the best shot in a Company, a star. In addition a monetary reward is given.

The Cavalry are seen lying down and firing with carbines.
