A soldier is a full brick upright as tall as it can be, A sailor is the thinnest a brick can be laid or half a soldier. A split is a half thickness brick.

Hope this helps.
First is soldier example and second is sailor example half brick vertical and the last is a sailor laid flat.

A sailor is a brick laid vertically with the bed face showing, a soldier is a brick laid vertically with the stretcher face showing.

Can't argue with a real brickie
Wikipedia has a nice drawing I copied showing the 6 different bricklaying positions. Having said that this forum seems to have a convention using chipsters description. The tower of babel was never finished because the builders didn't understand each other - nothing will stop the tower of pizza

To be politically correct, would it be called a "vertically challenged" soldier course?

These are sailors, it helps to use the common and accepted terminology, ie "courses" not "rings" or "chains".

I believe the "shiner" face is an American term.
