British Infantry Standing at Ease

Posted by Konrad on 13 Jul 2017, 14:40

After the Highlanders STRELETS offers a new great set for all the Nappy Fans here.

What means "Standing at Ease"?

I'm a stupid old man with only nine years in school. :oops:

When standing at ease, the men are permitted, by command, to move their limbs without quitting their ground.

ie. Relax but stay there

Yes that is correct FredG. Standing at ease is a more relaxed order of command to still stay in ranks.
These certainly look a lively bunch for chin wagging. Talking! BB

When i was a soldier in the German "Bundeswehr" we had a command "Rührt euch".
I guess it means the same.
Thank you very much FredG and BB.

I think this is a good set of figures for the Nappy time. The first full set of non combat pose so far I know.
All pose look live like.
In the third pic the fourth from left is my favorite.
Remind me to the Esci German paratrooper set.

Very nice indeed. Strelets have certainly raised the bar in their recent offerings.

They look very nice indeed! Thanks for sharing Konrad! :thumbup:

Standing at ease was the best part of the drill. You could strech the legs a bit, but had to stay at place. :-D
