Give the signal of execution.
When the entire band has completed the Countermarch, the drum major signals Forward March.
All Other Band Members And Band Commander:
If you are in the front rank, when the drum major gives the signal of execution take one more fifteen
inch step and do two consecutive fifteen inch Left Flanks. Continue to march at a half-step.
(Trombone players will bring their instruments to the Ready Instruments position on the pivot of the
first left flank. On the step after completing the second left flank, trombone players return to the
Prepare To Play position. Both actions occur on the right foot.)
If you are not in the front rank, when the drum major gives the signal of execution, immediately take
up the half step. Turn on the fifth step after the person in front of you turns. Turn where the first
rank turns. Guide on the center file of the band. In a band that has an even number of files, guide on
the right center file.
Give the preparatory signal. If the band has an odd number of files, take one 30-inch step to the left.
Mark Time until the first rank comes on line with you. March with the first rank until you reach the
place to turn. Give the signal of execution. Reverse your direction by rocking back on your right
foot and pivoting to the right. Complete the reverse by pivoting on your next left step. Continue
