When the proper time comes, the new Patrol Leader's appointment [election to office] should be announced before the Troop with an appropriate ceremony, along the following general lines:

1.  The Troop is formed in a circle with the members of the Troop Leaders' Council [Patrol Leader's Council] in the center.

2.  The Scoutmaster tells the Troop in a few words of the importance of good Patrol Leadership and announces the appointment of Scout Blank as the the new Patrol Leader of So-and-So Patrol.

3.  Scout Blank is called forward.  He  places his left hand on the pole of the Troop flag, above that of the Scoutmaster, salutes, and fives the Patrol Leader's Promise: "I promise to do my best to be worthy of my office as Patrol Leader, for the sake of my fellow Scouts, my Patrol and my Troop."

4.  The Scoutmaster pins the Patrol Leader's Badge on the boy's left sleeve, presents to him a Patrol Leader Handbook, and the youngest member of the Patrol presents him with the Patrol flag.

5.  A Junior Leader leads the Troop in a cheer for the new Patrol Leader, who thereupon steps back into his Patrol, where he is greeted by another cheer from his own Scouts.
