I think it would a great idea that we post them here, Scott.
For starters, this is the "Oath of Office" I've used and
which I have taken from the Scoutmaster's Handbook (and
used every day during Wood Badge):
"I promise to do my best to be worthy of my office as
(Senior) Patrol Leader, for the sake of my fellow Scouts,
my (Patrol and) Troop, and the World Brotherhood of Scouting".
In the 1966 version of the Scoutmaster's Handbook, there's an
excellent Patrol Leader installation ceremony. I've used it
with some variations, for the installation of the Senior Patrol
Leader and Junior Assistant Scoutmasters.
Hope this helps!
