Abstract:

The performances, knowledges, skills, habits, and attitudes covered in the report are those the Infantry rifle squad leader must possess to train and lead a rifle squad in combat. In combat the bayonet will most often be employed upon the individual initiative of the user without command guidance once the bayonet has been fixed. Precombat training in the combat employment of the weapon, is therefore, of more than usual importance to the IRSL.
