Yes.
There are accounts of veterans that say they never received Battle Drill training. Even when in the UK for several years post France 40. I can quite believe it.

Certainly they would have had to send Officers and NCOs to Battle schools but if the Regiment was traditionalist it could have avoided conducting Battle Drill in its unit training.

And Regiments already in other theatres? As you posted elsewhere, any arriving personal would have soon been hushed up "That's not the way we do it!"

This might ring a bell with all of us then; "Well I've been doing it this way for ten years and it's been good enough, I'm not changing now".
