To March To The Rear

Military Handbooks: The Plattsburg Manual

Being in march: 1. To the rear, 2. MARCH.

At the command march, given as the right foot strikes the ground,

advance and plant the left foot; turn to the right about on the balls of

both feet and immediately step off with the left foot.

The turn is made on the toes as shown.

The command march must be given when the right foot is on the ground.

The left foot is then advanced to the position shown.

If marching in double time, turn to the right about, taking four steps

in place, keeping the cadence, and then step off with the left foot.
