All Cubs fall in for Pack Circle with a gap for Akela (and/or other Adults)
Cubs are bought to attention and the flag bearer enters circle with the flag and stands next to Leader
Sixer of Cub to be Invested is asked to bring the Cub forward, thanked and dismissed back to the circle
New Cub is asked if they wish to become a member of the Cub Scouts. On answering "yes" (this is the important bit, if they answer "no" you've got problems!)
the Leader asks all Cubs and Leaders to make the Scout Sign. The new Cub is then asked if they feel confident to say their Promise or if they want to repeat it.
Whichever option is taken, the flag is dropped to the horizontal position and the Leader and Cub both place their left hand on the flag (Leader holds the pole through the flag to help Flag Bearer) whilst making the sign with their right hands.
The Cub (or Cub and Leader) then say the Promise. The Leader then asks the Cub to say the Cub Scout Law. The Flag is then raised again and the Leader welcomes the Cub to the Cub Scout Pack whilst putting the Group necker/scarf around the young persons shoulders and fastening with the woggle.
The young person is then presented with the Investiture Certificate and the Badges, salutes the Leader, Salutes the Pack and falls back in to his position within the Circle as a fully fledged Cub Scout.
