    Post Drill Manual, and Band Drill Manual

    Hey everyone,
    I was just wondering if someone could leave a link for me for the standard Canadian Drill manual and the Canadian Band Drill manual. To my understanding, if something is not stated in the Band drill manual then you must refer to the standard Drill manual.

    The reason behind this is that at my summer camp (at CFB Borden), I took part in the CLI Band, and in that band for dressing, we took a check pace forward. Yet at my band at my home unit, we do not and did not for competition. I am wondering if such a thing is true or not, or even if it varries between the Army and the Air cadet bands.

    As we all know, we must treat the Drill Manual as if it where the Bible, but not everyone follows it.

    Anecdotally speaking, no.

    Practicality suggests that requiring Tuba players to put up their arms isn't exactly a good idea.

    I don't see any mention of arms in the first post.

    Either way, that all depends on who you have as your front rank in the band. Most tend to have the percussion in the front, and it's easy enough to raise a drum stick.

    Why wouldn't that be a good idea?

    Regular Drill Manual: http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/lf/Downloads/cfp201.pdf

    Been searching for a few years myself for the Band Drill Manual (CFP 202), yet to find it.

    Quick question before downloading the above manual:

    Thats the 2004 edition. I've heard theres one thats come after that. Is this true, or is the above link the most up to date version of the CFP201?

    The latest version of 201 was printed in 2005. I have yet to see an online version of it.

    Then I suppose 2004 will have to do for a Navy League Corps for now.
