*1 When the soldiers are at a parade rest then you can say “Descanso”, but if the soldiers are at attention (“en firmes”) you should say Descanso MAR. This position is intermediate between “attention” and the “parade rest”, so if you want to change from one to another it’s compulsory to order “Descanso”.

*2 If you just say “De frente MAR” the soldiers start marching (the first step is with the left foot). If you say “De frente , paso de maniobra ,MAR” they start walking as normally. If you want to march at the double (“a paso ligero”), then you have to order port arms first, so the secuence with the soldiers at attention would be:

“Tercien ARMAS”

“De frente paso ligero, MAR”

and they go at double step with the knees high and the weapon crossed from the hip to the shoulder.
