      Major Abolt et al

      This problem was also realised within the Crown Forces Upper Canada.

      Peter Twist has forwarded the 1811 version of the drill used by British
      and Canadian Regiments in North America to all units and all now seem
      to be using it. At events, a Battalion drill is usually held to bring all up
      to
      speed on this drill. The standardisation has also upgraded the Crown
      Force's safety level.

      The Brit/Canuck units also have organised their encampment (castrmentation)
      into a correct "streeted" structure for wedge tents and a 'Militia" camp for
      all
      the other tent varieties. This worked well at Stoney Creek and Fort George.
      it
      gives the spectator a chance to experience the two styles of military
      encampments.

      Not an "Umbrella Group", but an agreed standardisation.
