We see that the Line of Trajectory crosses the Line of Aim at two

commander from those most skilled, will be designated as Range
Finders. These men are practised in estimating distance throughout the

on the defensive, in estimating the distances to the prominent objects
in view before the action commences; and at other times when the company
commander needs their assistance.
