The position is indeed that for "charge bayonets" before the idea of actual "fencing" with it came along.

Cant say why but I am unable to see a text there so I give here a link to a picture of a Russian Infantry drill book of 1698 that shows that "Musket Push":

Page is from the Russian Guards Re-Enactor Website
which is partially in english http://www.peter.petrobrigada.ru/reg/reg_e.htm

Hope that helps

Cheers,

I seem to recall English/British armies used the same "charge bayonet" drill, certainly during the '45. Contemporary pictures in Morier (sp) show this. Didn't Duffy say it was a direct pose from the push pike drill movement transposed to a musket and bayonet?

Seems to be accepted by Russian re-enactors as a valid position, and also by a Russian based figure manufacturer...

I'm afraid I can't read Cyrillic either...

Nice picture

I take it the pose is a Russian Military Doctrine? Pity I cannot read Russian so don't know what the txt says

Very Nice!!

PS the defensive positions I see the men lunging with the bayonet what is the other pose?

Looks like a very awkward stance, is it a stationary present Bayonette stance for receiving cavalry or infantry? It Looks like the hand holds the butt I take it to take the impact but looks like it cannot be lunged very effectively if something is up close?

Fortunately I only have one regiment of the 'boys in blue' to model...

Then it will be a question of simply trying to fit in a few(!) defenders of Holy Mother Russia amongst my other projects! :?

Mark, don't all our projects run concurrently? Mine certainly seem to... :lol: :lol: :lol:
Mine most likeley run that way! All are termed SAXONY :lol:
It is of course a different Story as the term Saxony covers projects from the 9th to the 19th century :wink:

Barry,

these look fantastic, thank you so much for making my life harder :D :D
I will have to see if I can fit these in between Ireland and my Ottoman project.
