I'm up for pretty much anything. (Anyway, don't officers as a breed generally have some idea about shooting? Although, admittedly, it takes rather less precision to hit a bird with a pellet than a single bullet when out shooting.)

Also, some ideas we've done in the past that could be re-visited: A hunting or shooting day for the officers, and another map-making session (more advanced or testing what the men can remember from the first time).

Torrington can shoot pistols well enough, but shooting anything between pistols and cannons was firmly the territory of his brother. In fact he might have made a slight point out of it.

I am all for the suggested activities! For practical reasons I'm afraid Torry will want to teach the boys how to fix up a fortification ...

I'm up for pretty much anything. Karl can visit the guards or someone and teach them some good old Prussian drill or he could do firearms practice because he's a good shot too (being in the Jaegers and Rifles after all).

I'll go with whatever works best biggrin.gif

The 50th Foot have replaced the Coldstream Guards as the Rifles' "parent" regiment - and anyway, the Prussian style of drill isn't the object of the training day.

With that said, the training day itself has kicked off here. Rifles officers and Captain Torrington are invited to make appearances. For the Rifles officers themselves, I'd like very much for them to they take part. One post a week at the minimum to keep their characters 'present', as it is not fair for only one or two to be involved.
