Fire





There are three kinds of fire:

(1) Volley Fire. Every one fires at the command FIRE. It is used at
funerals and occasionally in the first part of an action when the enemy
presents a large, compact target.

(2) Fire At Will. In this each soldier fires, loads, and fires again
independently of the others. He fires fast or slow as the occasion
demands.

(3) Clip Fire. The soldier stops firing when he has finished his clip
of five cartridges. This assists in preventing an undue expenditure of
ammunition and in abating excitement.
