Ammunition





An infantry soldier goes into battle carrying 220 rounds of rifle

ammunition. He habitually carries in his belt 100 rounds and when a

fight is imminent he gets 120 rounds (2 bandoliers) from his combat

train. He keeps 30 rounds in the right pocket section of his belt to be

expended only when ordered by an officer.



A cavalryman goes into battle carrying 150 rounds of rifle ammunition

and 40 rounds of pistol ammunition. He habitually carries in his belt 90

rounds of rifle and 20 rounds of pistol ammunition. When about to go

into a fight he gets 60 rounds of rifle and 20 rounds of pistol

ammunition from his combat train.



All officers must train their men to economize in the use of ammunition.

Train service, even by rail for ammunition, would be inadequate if this

were not done.
