If you don't know what it is, I'll explain. Just ask.
I would like to do that for my drill team's drill routine. COuld you explain how it's done and the timings please?
I thought I explained it earlier. All you have to do is about turns and left turns separated by ONE check pace between each turn. When you finish the movement, you should be facing the opposite direction that you were originally. Make sure to swing your arms for the check paces.

Hmmm, that's sort of hard to picture, I'll TRY to get it.

No prob. It's hard to do when you're just starting (I know I had a rough time), but once you get it down, you'll never forget it.

Yes, that one does look really good when done properly. We wanted to use it as a marchpast in my squadron, but we decided that it would take too long to train a bunch of new recruits (They still hadn't learned how to march yet, let alone open order on the march)

L and R forms to the halt when properly done.
Rest on arms reverse with the SLR, it looks boring with the Steyr now.
