HARDENING EXERCISES

Chapter 1

HOW TO CRAWL

CRAWLING is a strengthening exercise. In fact it is one of the first that we indulge in. So I thought it would be an elementary way to commence a series of hardening exercises for Ail-Out Hand-to-Hand Fighters, Arwr-Men.

To teach you how to crawl implies that there is more than one way for a soldier or guerilla to crawl forward.

There is the "Down on All Fours" and generally "Up in Behind" method (Fig. 3). One fault with most crawlers is that they keep their rear up too high. A second point is that they make too much noise.

If carrying a rifle and crawling on your left side, one good way is to grab the muzzle with your right hand and keep the butt resting on your left thigh. This is the "Side Crawl", which is good, but slow, and often noisy (Fig. 4).

One method is suggested, the Silent Semi-Crawl. It will be described in detail. In actual combat conditions, the soldier should suit the crawl position to the terrain, visibility and immediate action.

THE SILENT SEMI-CRAWL

This method, like all others has faults, but something valuable may be gained by its practice besides a 'house-maid's knee.'

Purpose :

1. Exercise

2. Moderate concealment and speed

3. Silent approach in dark

4. An attack position.

Position :

Holding your weapon, which may be anything from a Sten gun to a knife, in your right hand, kneel down on your left knee. Rest your right arm on your right knee which is off the ground. Crouch low.

How To Advance :

Cautiously feel along the ground in front of you with your left hand. Why? To find a silent spot in front of you. So don't put any weight on your left hand as you extend it. Separate your fingers (Fig. 5). When you have found a spot where leaves don't rustle, or boards don't squeak, then press your weight slowly onto your left hand. Then move your hand a couple of inches farther ahead (Fig. 6).

Now lift up your left knee, and foot too, and quietly and gradually place your left knee down, im mediately behind your left hand, on the silent spot (Figs. 7 and 8) .

Slowlv bring up your left knee behind your left hand.

A mistake commonly made is that the left foot is

dragged noisily along the ground. Lift it up. Think of a tin can tied to a dog's tail, that's your left foot.

Now again reach out your left hand exploring the ground in front of you for a noiseless spot. When you find one rest your weight on it, pressing your hand down gradually (Figs. 9 and 10).

Now shift your weight over to the left side of your body and lift your right foot off the ground. Then gently swinging it around, feel lightly with your
