Hay drill ?

  • deehar by deehar

    Anyone know what Hay drill is ? It was part of a course for a Signals Company. (http://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0001mia)

    I think it's actually "flag drill", compare the H of "However" in the line above and slightly to the right, versus the l at the start of "lectures" in the line below and just to the left, plus the f at the start of "further" at the beginning of the fourth line below. Also the g of "given" versus the y at the end of "voluntary" (start of each of the lines following)

    I agree. Flag drill definitely makes sense in a signals context too.

    Yes, yes brilliant ! I agree entirely with your analysis.
