Banner bearer

I am carrying the RAFA banner for this Sunday’s parade however I was wondering at what point you dip the banner. I know all the banner drill I just don’t know what point it’s to be dipped


Itll be dependant on the parade instructions.

Just follow everyone else

Thank you

A good parade commander would publish parade orders. A good rule of thumb is to dip the banner on the last post, hold for the duration of the silence and then carry on the reveille. If the national anthem is played, it standards are usually dipped for that as well.

Ask one of the other standard/banner bearers when you get there, hopefully they will know!

Essentially as per @talon, wrt when to dip.
The trick is getting the standard out of the bucket to dip and back into the bucket when coming to the carry.
Also if it is raining or wet, the standard is held horizontally and not draped on the floor.
