Standing at ease


Generally, after something formal has happened in a ceremony (like raising a flag or making the Australian Scout Promise), the person leading the ceremony will ask members to ‘stand at ease’. This means:

  • Standing (or sitting if you’re unable to stand) comfortably, still in formation
  • If standing, your feet shoulder- width apart and your hands behind your back or in front of you
  • Keeping still and silent.
