1. It is the Scout Promise which turns the activities of Scoutcraft into Scouting. Unless, as Patrol Leaders, we learn to accept this and try to apply it we can never be satisfactory leaders in Scouting.

2. The most significant part of getting other people~ to understand the Scout Promise and to live by it is to set the right example.

3. There is no example more important than that of

the Patrol Leader.



4. Example in uniform and with the Troop is insufficient : The Scout Promise must govern our actions in and out of uniform and in all our relationship with other people.

5. All this means that, as Patrol Leaders, we must

Practice our own religion.


I I (b)

Demonstrate our loyalty to the Queen when

ever the opportunity arises.

(c) Learn how to render service to other people

and show ourselves anxious to find

opportunities to put our training into action.

(d) Accept the Scout Law as a guide to our

personal living. For example :

As Patrol Leaders we will be honorable in all that we say and do.

We will be loyal to our Scouters, to the Scouts in our Patrol, and to the traditions of the Troop.

Because we are leaders, we will show our willingness to obey such orders as are properly given to us.

Our friendship for others and brotherhood will be founded in courtesy and thoughtfulness for others.

We will remain cheerful, particularly in adversity.

Our leadership in thrift will result in our being punctual at all times and careful of the Troop and Patrol property in addition to spending our money intelligently.

We will accept the 10th Scout Law with all its implications, so that we shall be truly clean in our thoughts, in what we say,, and in all that we do.

6. As Patrol Leaders, we will recognize that our job is to lead through example and to help each and every Scout in the Patrol to have a progressive understanding of the Promise he has voluntarily made.
