Infantry Training: Training and War 1937

The British Army in 1937 may have been small, but it was still one of the most professional in the world. This pamphlet gives a picture of infantry training standards at the time, and may be regarded as doctrinal. It covers organisation, weapons, training, drill, field formations, field signals, fieldcraft, battle procedure, patrols, protection, attack and defence, night operations, FIBUA and water crossings. Appendices are also included. Very important in understanding the ethos of the infantry just before the war broke out.
