Well, yes it is. See the mention of the " full present arms salute" on this page. There is also the "full gun salute" which can in principle be fired in honour of anyone, though it is executed, of course, by one section or another of the armed forces.DDT said:I already tried Google, but after your post I keep on wondering...is a "full salute" a military greeting or not?
