Form Up and Rolling Salute – We will be forming up and honouring Robert with a rolling salute. Members will be asked to form up 6ft apart and come to attention when the command is given. The rolling salute begins when the colours approach, you will be raising your right hand saluting the Canadian flag as it reaches you. Hold the salute until the caisson passes, and then down immediately at the back bumper of the caisson, bowing your head as the family passes. This is a rolling salute. Your hand should come down after the member beside you and co-ordinate with the member across you. Continue to stand at attention until you’re dismissed. The final salute will be set up in the parking lot of the venue, see map below:
