It is my understanding that the School of Instruction
"Infantry" is for Unit Officers and NCOs only. They will be
trained in new drill and will return to their respective units to
teach and drill them in the new manoeuvres. Unit commanders
will decide who is to attend for their unit as well those attendees
should be versed in the correct Crown Forces drill
School of Instruction "Artillery" is for cannon crews and
will involve tending and handling of the guns
School of Instruction "Cooking" is opened for those who
wish to learn to cook 1812'ish
This is not an open event for all re-enactors to attend as the
space will not accommodate all.
I believe Mr Twist and the Fort will authorise all who will attend
after receiving their registrations.
