Investiture of a Scout

Here is a suggested ceremonial for a recruit to be invested as a Scout:

The Troop is formed in horseshoe formation, with Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster in the gap. The Assistant Scoutmaster holds the hat of the recruit. When ordered to come forward by the Scoutmaster, the Patrol Leader brings the recruit to the centre. The Scoutmaster than asks: "Do you know what your honour is?"

The recruit replies: "Yes. It means that I can be trusted to be truthful and honest" (or words to that effect).

"Do you know the Scout Law?"


"Can I trust you, on your honour, to do your best to live up to the Scout Promise?"

Recruit then makes the Scout Sign, and so does the whole Troop while he gives the Scout Promise.

Scoutmaster: "I trust you, on your honour, to keep this Promise. You are now a Scout in the World-wide Brotherhood of Scouts".

The Scoutmaster gives him his badges and the Assistant Scoutmaster then hands him his hat. The Patrol Leader then fastens on his Patrol shoulder knot.

The Scoutmaster shakes hands with him with the left hand.

The new Scout faces about and salutes the Troop.

The Troop salutes.

The Scoutmaster gives the word, "To your Patrol, quick march".

The new Scout and his Patrol Leader march back to their Patrol.
