      A post was made, stating something to the effect
      to how many Crown Forces Units have regular
      drills year around ........

      I know of

      8th (KINGS) Regt - Toronto area
      41st Regt - Hamilton area
      Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada - Toronto area

      all of who schedule drills through the winter months,
      and I am also aware of the 8th and 41st conducting
      unit drills Saturday morning at events.

      any others?

      How bout the American Forces?

      I know the 1st and 7th drill religiously ......

        Us at USS COnstitution usually drill 2 times a month in the spr. sum.
        and fall when not busy on the ship and we are working on doing a
        couple of "discussion" (indoor) drills in the wintah. The only
        problemm is that through all our research, which I would say is
        extremely extensive, we have found no specified drill. ie. Duane,
        Smythe, Von Steuben ect. We have found a list of manouvers and the
        manual of arms the Marines were suposed to know but thats it. We
        know that when ever a ship was in port the Marines not on duty on
        board were to land and drill with the Marines in the Navy Yards. Yet
        our lack of manual has lead us to look awkward when manouvering with
        well drilled US units (sorry about that, we hope to get better. But
        let me see you guys climb ratlins or repel ignorant idiots from off
        of the 32lb carronades without them spiting on you). This all
        probobly stems from the fact that the Marines were suposed to be a
        ship board/Navy Yard guard and had no need to know the manuals for
        regiments and Battalions so we are probably historically accurate. I
        guess that if the Marines didn't have to go out every so often to
        offer some real resistance to the enemy, they never would have needed
        to know. J/K Soldiers and... ok... Militia too
