During some ceremonies, it’s common for the person leading the ceremony to ask members to stand at the ‘alert’.
This means: • Standing up straight (or sitting if you’re unable to stand), normally in a formation (often a horse-shoe or circle shape) with the rest of the Scouts gathered • Holding your arms to your sides, or as close to your sides as you can • Keeping still and silent.
