Silent Signals are no longer published by the BSA. You can find them at
The Kudu Net, see;
>From the 3rd Edition of the Scoutmaster Handbook:
"A CERTAIN AMOUNT of drill is necessary for getting the Troop and Patrols
into position for various activities and for moving the Troop with a
semblance of order and smartness.
"For this Scouting does not resort to military drill, but has developed its
own technique, easily learned and considered by the boys as a game rather
than a drill."
Silent Signals are very impressive in a quiet situation, and essential in a
noisy environment. Well worth the effort.
Hope that helps!
Yours in Scouting,
