111 COURT OF HONOR (1)

An important function of the Course will be to convince the boys that the Court of Honor has an essential function to fulfill in Scouting, and to show them how it works. As the Course progresses frequent consultations with the Patrol Leaders increase the prestige of the Court of Honor in the eyes of the Troop as a whole.

' The general rule should be that Patrol Leaders are given pre-knowledge of all activities (not necessarily in any detail) and that as far as possible all instructions should be transmitted through them.

The agenda for the Court of Honor meeting will necessarily depend on the Course' time table, but the following may be taken as a typical example :

1. Scouter's introductory remarks (including, if merited, a word of commendation to the Patrol Leaders).

2. Points raised by the Patrol Leaders

Briefing for next day's activities : (a) " Limbering Up Exercises " (see para. IV). (b) Morning Inspection (see para. V). (c) Religious Observances (see para. XIX). (d) Patrol Meetings (see para. V11).

4. Explanation of the " Changing Leader " system (see " Leadership Training " page 12).

5. Log Books : On non continuous Courses in particular, the idea of keeping Patrol Log Books might be suggested to the Patrol Leaders

6. Patrol Corners : encourage Patrol Leaders to decorate their own Patrol Corners (particularly on non continuous Courses).
