Does anyone know where I might find a (preferably) used copy of either Pickering's An Easy Plan of Discipline For a Militia, or The Norfolk Militia Drill manual for sale? I would prefer a used copy of either one, to put in my bag or pockets. I found a copy of Pickering's at the King's Arms Press, but I am looking for a used copy if possible. Thanks for any leads!

Thank you, Mario! Do you know if the original manual contained pictures or diagrams of the various commands and positions? You know, like the Norfolk Militia manual?

No, I don't. We use either the standard 1764 Brit drill or the 1772 Guy Johnson Drill (essentially the 1764 drill w/o the bayonet stuff) up here.

I can tell you that I highly recommend the King's arms Press, however. ;-)

Let me post a link to our web page. Under the manual of arms we have pictures of the drill commands that we use.

Please be aware that this is our interpretation of the drill used by the First of Foote during the French and Indian War. There are many suble differences in drill used by different units and commands.
