    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    Todays armed services take it very seriously flaking out due to heat stress/stroke people just don't flake out whilst on the move for no reason, if your standing dead still at attention for a very extended period then blood pools in your legs and can lead to a flake out. (I found this out in the cadets did not do a face plant like one of my mates but things were greying out.)

    We always carried our 303's on our left shoulder probably because of our slouch hats but even with helmets on I see the A.I.F still sloped arms on the left shoulder.

    The US troops could shoulder arms left or right as required...we too could change arms. Usually that was for extended marching distance. As you point out though, if a man went down we had to know why. the man in the back of the column seems to be in civvies and is at the quick step. I expect he's more like rescue personnel that anything.
