Fig. 40.—Right by file

Fig. 41.-Squads (twos)

left front into line

At the command March, the leading file or files halt. The remainder of the squad or two obliques to the right and halts on the line with the leading file or files. The remaining squads or twos close up and successively form in rear of the first in like manner. The movement described in this paragraph will be ordered right or left, so as to restore the files in their normal relative positions in the two or squad.

Marching by twos or files can not be executed without serious delay and waste of road space. Every reasonable precaution will be taken to obviate the necessity of these formations in route columns. They find their principal application as approach formations in the zone of hostile artillery fire.
