A spontaneous advance's direction is straight ahead, except if that move (a) would neither contact an enemy element any part of which is directly in front nor end closer to the previously closest visible enemy it may, or (b) would go closer to its side's rear battlefield edge it must either:
· Unless in column behind another moving element, change direction by the least angle and then move the least distance possible to bring its front edge into front or rear edge contact with or to overlap the closest enemy element in reach of which any part is in front of a line extending its rear edge.
