["The most accurate results are obtained if heels, shoulders and buttocks touch an upright wall, and the child looks straight ahead so that the lower border of the orbit and the external auditory meatus are in the same horizontal plane. The child should be told to make himself as tall as possible without lifting his heels from the ground. A deep breath should be taken as this helps to bring him up to his maximum height." Report of C.M.O., Ministry of Education, 1950/51, p. 61.]
