    Town Guard Orders

    By EMSeppo

    Any single guard is only as good as his or her unit and a unit is no better than its weakest link. A town guard, like any other guard, must learn discipline and team work.
    Any town guard recruit planning to take his or her S.R.T. will have learned and practiced the following orders,
    Parade orders
    Attention: All town guards will face the ranking officer and stand to attention - straightened posture with arms on the side
    Present fortification: Town guards will assist each other in building a temporary fortification for inspection
    Present role: The town guard queried will describe his or her role within the unit
    Present arms: The town guards will present their primary weapon of choice
    Guard lineup: All town guards will form an appropriate line up of no more than three standing next to each other
    Forward march: All town guards are to march in step with each other beginning three seconds after the command, saluting as they pass the ranking officer
    Halt: All town guards are to cease marching

    Stand down:
    All town guards are to relax from their attention stance and await further orders
    Dismissed: All town guards are dismissed. They may leave the lineup after saluting the ranking officer
    Tactical orders
    Fire in town: All but one of town guards present will run to the nearest source of water and assist with putting out the fire. The town guard not assisting with water will direct citizens to a safer place
    Arrest [Name]: Surround a person to be arrested. Use force if they struggle
    Aid [Name]: Assigned healers will heal the said town guard or citizen
    Attack [Name]: All town guards shall attack the said person
    Fall back: All town guards will fall back to the ranking officer. If no ranking officer is present, they will fall back to the nearest defensible or preselected position
    To [Name]: All town guards will form a square formation around a person to provide protection
    To bank: All town guards will report to the bank of their assigned city
    Defend position: All town guards will erect temporary outpost at the said position
    Defend home: All town guards will congregate at the town guard headquarters in Britain. Upon arrival, they will take defensive positions
    While the town guards are unlikely to find themselves in a full battle, they are still required to have book knowledge of tactical formations,
    Wedge formation: Lines thinned to provide concentration in center to smash through enemy lines
    Single line defence: Deployment in a single line to overlap enemy flanks
    Cannae tactic: Center left weak deliberately to invite enemy centre attacks allowing encirclement of the enemy
    Strong right flank: Strong right flank to break through enemy’s left flank and then attacking from the rear
    Protected Flank: Using a natural barrier to protect one of the flank and positioning the cavalry on the opposite end
