There are units using the Cooper and some using Campbell.
Campbell is an advanced system requiring more individual action on the
soldiers part and is probably the most "up-to-date" at that time.
Tim"s point about the necessity of any light infantryman to be
completely fluent in the regular manual and abstract is actually backed
up in most manuals and should be taken strictly to heart. Know the
basics before going to the next level. You will be called upon to
function with other troops which means that you still have to be able
to march in "ordinary" and wheel left, right or backwards etc.
