There is the manual of arms for the rifle, saber/sword and even a handgun. What about the Firefighter’s Ceremonial Fire Axe? I have the solution! For my fifth book for the military drill world, The Honor Guard Manual, I developed a manual for manipulating the firefighter’s ceremonial fire axe that mimics the manual of arms for the honor guard.
What I have done is to try to match, as closely as possible, the honor guard manual of arms for the rifle and present a standard that everyone can use regardless of where they are or the size of their team.
Here is a sample of going from Attention to Port Arms and then Port Arms back to Order Arms/Attention:
From Attention to Port Arms
From Port Arms to Order Arms/Attention
In The Honor Guard Manual you can learn about the three ceremonial elements and how to perform all positions of each element and more!
