MILITARY ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 4 November 1915

MILITARY ETIQUETTE. J Newly-commlssloned officers are caused not a little embarrassment at times by relatives and others wlio per sist in giving them their full military title in conversation and when ad dressing lotters to thorn. This, it should bo pointed out, Is quite contrary to military etiquette, the rule being that military titles below the rank of captain are never used socially, nor naval titles below tho rank of lieuten ant. A subaltern Is addressed in writ ing as "Esq.," with the name of the regiment, etc., following. A lieutenant In the Navy Is "Esq., It.N." Not a few people, by the way, may hpvo wondered why a private soldier, when meeting an officer, salutes some times with one hand and sometimes with the other. This is becauso it is correct for the soldier to salute with the hand farthest from tho ofllcor, so as not to hide Ills face in so doing. Thus, if ho passes an officer on the left hand side, ho would salute with the right hand, and It passed on tho right band B...

NEARING THE END. ENEMY AND HIS RESOURCES. HOW THE ALLIES' POLICY OF ATTRITION WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 4 November 1915

nearing the end. ENEMY AND HIS RESOURCES. HOW THE ALLIES' POLICY OF ATTRITION WORKS. (Iiv Colonel K. N. Maude, C.U.. lato R.K.) Tin' striking force of any enemy is ill ways a proiluct of its numbers and it:; powers of rapid movement. Num bers alone are useless unless they rail move, and. equally, rapid motion is of no value unless tlie power _of lighting lies bevonil it. Generally, tlie possibilities of loco motion arc so nearly equal, as be tween the great nations of Europe. that we Insensibly ignore the fact of mobility, and content ourselves with counting beads only. Possibly we might never have grasped Hie import ance of mobility but for the Boer War. which opened our eyes in most convincing fashion, nut Napoleon had gone ahead of us, and the Ger- i mans, grasping thin element of his J success, had prepared a surprise fac tor in mobility which should have staggered the world, and would have done so unquestionably l»it {or the extraordinary powers of endurance of heroic troops an...
