  1. It is very nice they they had time during thier attack to spread out some picnic blankets. You don’t want to get your uniform dirty.

  2. Not one of them used their rifle slings as a brace; using their slings would have improved their accuracy by 50% at least, one chap never even had the butt of the rifle pulled into his shoulder tight enough. How long do those lovely felt boots last at least you don’t have to polish them.
