According to the 'Musketry Regulations' of 1909 the purpose of musketry training was to render the individual soldier proficient in the use of small-arms, to make him acquainted with the capabilities of the weapon with which he was armed, and to give him confidence in its power and accuracy. The recruits' course of instruction included a general description of the rifle and ammunition used, the care of arms, the theory of rifle fire, aiming and firing, visual training and judging distance.
