Here is “The Canadian Army Training Pamphlet No.1, A General Instructional Background for the Young Soldier.

Book shows ware, with rubbing, stains and folded pages, binding is tight.

This book addresses different aspects of training of the infantry. This volume covers everything from how to march and salute to detailed illustrations of the different rifles; from protection against gases to how to dig a weapon pit; from hand-to-hand fighting to what to carry in your haversack (backpack). [The "housewife", a small case for needles and thread, is to be kept in the pack which is usually carried on the platoon truck.] The importance of sanitation and personal hygiene is stressed in this manual; statistics are cited from previous wars showing the huge numbers of soldiers who suffered from disease rather than injuries.
