The Volunteers. MUSKETRY INSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 February 1870

The Volunteers. MUSKETRY INSTRUCTION. Now that the musketry instruction for the year 1869 is concluded, we will say a few words in refer ence to it. In tho first place, the course of musketry has ex tended over a period of ten months, which is far too long for any practical purpose. It should not have occupiod more than five or six months at the outside, for while musketry is in progress, the markor of the rifle range is scarcely ever available for ordinary practice shooting, and by extending tho course over such a length of time, inducements are held out to I stragglers to delay going through until the last pos sible day. Secondly, wo would, whilst giving tho officer in structor of musketry o very praise for tho gratuitous timo and labour he has devoted to the cause, venturo to point out an irregularity which has crept in during the progress of the instruction, "Wo allude J to tho fact of the musketry instruction marker being I at the firing point during the shooting, instead of hi...
