Ship'scat Lyr/Tune Req: Old Red Flannel Drawers Maggie Wore (31) RE: The Old red flannel drawers maggie wore 30 Mar 01


"Maggies Drawers" were also what soldiers called the square red flag tied to the end of a bamboo pole and waved back in forth across a big frame target that the [non]marksman had missed completely. These along with other marking "paddles" were employed on the old (pre-1960) KD or known distance marksmanship ranges. As I recall, these ranges had various firing points out to 300 yards but I'm not certain.
