Basic Training Course for Kawan Leaders

Session No. 2/Handout

KAWAN AND COLOR GROUP FORMATIONS
Simple Kawan formations are necessary to orderliness and smartness and for getting the Color Groups lined up quickly for games and projects.
These formations compose Scout drill using silent hand signals, and not the military-type drill with shouted commands.
Silent Signals for Kawan Formations
The arm signals for Kawan formations are intended to facilitate preparations for unified group action even when the noise and the fury of the elements prevail. These signals are given by the Kawan Leader or whoever is designated as drill master facing the Kawan in operational activities. The intelligent leader should not limit herself to the use of signals suggested. Conditions like terrain, weather, kind of emergency, physical conditions of the Scouts, and the like, should enable her to determine more practical uses of signals.

Herewith are brief descriptions and some uses of the arm signals:

a) SINGLE RANK FORMATION (Kawan Line) – Extend both arms horizontally, parallel to the line you wish Kawan to take, palms turned front if you want the Color Groups in front of you. How to Execute: Flag Bearers take up positions in front at center of their Color Groups. Color Groups fall in line two paces behind with two paces interval between Color Groups. The line dresses right without command.

Uses: For general line-up, for inspection in meeting room, also in preparing to move the Kawan across a wide area.

Variation: CLOSED SINGLE RANK - Extend both arms horizontally, parallel to the line you wish the color groups to take, fist closed.
How to execute: Similar to Single Rank Formation, except that Flag Bearers fall in on the right of their Color Groups.

c) “U” FORMATION (Horseshoe Shape) – Both arms extended sidewards but bent at right angles at elbows, palms open facing inwards.
How to Execute: Color Groups fall in, in a single line. Color Groups observe same order of sequence as in Kawan Line, though Flag Bearers fall in on the right...
