I was never aware that the BB paraded with weapons! If this became public knowledge, they might have a recruitment surge...

It was pointed out at the time that these rifles were considered to be too warlike, and their use was discontinued, even although they were only REPLICAS.

BB rifle drill stopped after world war 1.
