The leader should be an officer or a noncommissioned officer. He must

have good judgment, be cool, be quick in making a decision, be strong in

physique, have initiative, and be brave, but not to the extent of

rashness. Besides his regular equipment he should have a good pair of

field glasses, a compass, a watch, wire cutters, pencils, a message

book, and a map of the country.
