A cavalry attack visible at 2000 yards is a rare occurence

and is easily beaten off. the dangerous form of attack is

when the cavalry can get within 500 yards unseen, and

can form up under cover to charge

The only possible order is then "fuze zero, gun fire

or fuze.

 

In the case of a Column moving across the line of fire

if may be necessary to give deflection; if so the following

is a useful guide;

 

If the target is moving at a walk give 20'

     "                "                 "     trot     "    40'

     "                "                 "    gallop  "    

                                               motor  "    2°
