Forming for Parade
Would be interested in when, where, and how many bugle calls, drum beats, fife tunes YOUR unit (not the manuals nor do I want them cited!, nor someone elses unit) uses to assemble, say, a 200 man battalion. Let's say this is Sunday morning in July, so you've gotten over the early season who stands where issues for a company and have previously formed up on Saturday so the Captains know who is the color company, 10th company, etc.
We may be surprised at the answers!
