1. Pause between movements until a Judge indicates that you should proceed.

2. If it is considered necessary to re-position the squad between movements (or during a movement as a result of a mistake) such movements will not be marked providing the Judges are informed of your intention first.

3. Whilst it is in no way intended that the person giving the orders if "marked" please remember that if movements are omitted or the squad fails to execute the movement set because the incorrect command is given, marks may be lost.
