Smartness and Good Order 1

Scout members have long had an excellent reputation for appearance, discipline and good order that is recognized and admired by the public.

Scouts leaving the camp and going to public places must be properly and neatly dressed.

"Troop-At Ease"

Move left foot to left and take up position described above. This command may be followed by 'Easy'. Relax, the body, arms and head may now be moved but the feel must remain in the 'At Ease' position. The troop may not go direct from the 'Alert' position to the 'Easy' position.
