Posi of tlie Band and Field Music. 56. The baud is posted with the left of its front rank twenty fo2r xces to the richt of the front rank of the battalion. Ineolnnin, it marches with its rear rank twenty-four paces in front of the leading company, or its front rank twenty-four paces in rear of the rear company, according as the battalion is facing. In line of columns, the baud retains its line position, matching abreast of the leading guides. To Form tlie Battalion. 257. The companies having been formed on their parade grounds, adjutants call is sounded, at wincii tne aujuiani. procerus to the point where the base company is to form; the seigeant major reports to him and is posted ou the line facing the adjutant at nearly company distance; the adjutant and sergeant major then draw swords. The right center or center company is tbe first established, and is conducted by its captain so as to arrive from tbe rear, parallel to the line; tbe right and left guides of the company precede it on the line by about twenty paces, taking post facing each other, at order amis, under the direction of the adjutant aud sergeant major. The line is prolonged in the right wing by the right and left guides, who precede their companies on tbe line by about twenty paces and establish themselves facing the guides first posted, at-a little less than company distance apart, the one nearest the guide of the preceding company being about five .paces in bis rear; tbe adjutant assures the position of the guides, placing himself in rear of tbe right guides as they successively arrive. The line is simi larly prolonged in the left wing by the company guides, the ser geant major assuring them in their positions, placing himself in rear of the left guides. "When the right center company an ives near the line, the captain halts it, places himself facing to tbe front near the left guide, and dresses the company to the left; the breasts of the men opposite the right and left guides rest respectively against their left and right arms; the companies of the right u ing successively form from left to right with an interval of three paces between guides when in line, each company being halted near the line and dicssed to the left, as explained for the center company; the companies of the left wing fornl successively from right to left and are dressed to the right. 5. Captains, when dressing their companies in line, place themselves on the line, on the flank toward v, hich they dress, facing the fiont. Each captain, after dressing his company, commands: Front, and takes his post. 2hcse rules ate general. 259. At all formations of the battalion, a non-commissioned officer in command of his company takes his post on the right of the right guide at the command guides posts, and, except in forma tions for ceremonies, when the major commands rigid shoulder (or order) arms after receiving the report of the adjutant, he takes the post prescribed for the captain. 2G0. Before sounding the adjutant's call the band takes a posi tion designated by the adjutant, and marches at the same time as the companies to take its position in line. The major takes post facing the line, at a distance in front of the center of the battalion about equal to half its front The adjutant, having assured the position of tbe guides of the right company, places himself two paces to the front, facing to the left, and when the last company arriving on the line is dressed, commands: 1. Guides, 2. Posts. At the command guides posts, the sergeant major aud guides , take their posts in line, and the staff and non-commissioned staff draw sword and take their posts. The adjutant moves at a trot or gallop (if dismounted, in quick time) by the shortest line to a point midway between the major and the center of the battalion, faces the latter and halts; then brings the battalion to the carry and present, faces about, salutes the major, aud rerorts: Sir, the battalion is formed. The major returns the salute with the right hand, directs the adjutant, Take your post, sir; draws sword, and brings the battal ion to the order or carry. The adjutant faces about and returns around the right of the battalion to his post. Sec note at end of School of the Battalion. 261. The battalion may be formed in line on the right or left company on the same principles, the guides being posted, as in the left or right wing. The battalion ma3T also be assembled in column of foura. In both cases the companies are arranged in the same relative Order as when the formation is on the center company. "When as sembled in column, the adjutant reports to the major as soon as the last company hasHaken its place. Equalizing Hie Battalion. 262. The companies are usually equalized by transfers before the battalion is formed, but when this is not done, the major may form column of companies and direct the adjutant first, to equal ize the companies by transferring men from the larger to the smaller companies; second, to break up oue company and equalize by trans ferring the men to other companies; third, to form an additional company and equalize by taking men from the other companies; also, to make the necessary assignment of officers and guides. To Open Banks. S63. Being at a halt: 1. Open ranks, 2. March, 3. Front. At the first command the major goes to the right of the battalion.

The right guides of each company and the guide on the left of the battalion place themselves three paces in rear of the front rank, opposite their places in line, in order to mark the new alignment of tbe rear rank; they are aligned 1)3' tbe adjutant on the lelt guide of the battalion. The lieutenants and the otner file closers take post as in open ranks in the company (par. 190). At the command march, the company and staff officers place themselves opposite their posts in line, three paces in advance of the front lank, dress to tbe right and cast their eyes to the front as soon as their alignment is verified. The front rank dresses to the right; the men in the rear rank step back a little in rear of the line traced for this rank, halt, and dress forward on the right guides, who verify the alignment of the men in their respective companies. The adjutant verifies the alignment of the file closers on tbe left file closer, who posts himself accurately three xaces in rear of the line of guides. The color bearer remains in his place; the other members of the color guard step back with the file closers. The sergeant major takes post one pace to the left of and in line with tbe front rank. The major verifies the alignment of the officers and the ranks. The baud takes three paces between ranks, the alignment being YcriGcd by the drum major. At the command front, given when the ranks are aligned, the adjutant takes post three paces to the right of the battalion, in line with the company officers; tbe guides and drum major return to their places in line; and tbe major takes post facing to the front, twenty paces in front of the center of the battalion.
