The sign is made when you press the three middle fingers of your hand to your lips and then hold them out to the person, or people, that you want to show respect to. In the book, the left hand is used, but in the film it is the right hand.

It is scout sign. 3 fingers mean: 1 obligation to yourself ( like , you should take care for your self), 2 obligation to others (respect others, be kind to people) 3 spiritual obligation (the one you can accept the way you feel like ) and thumb over small finger means , the one that is older and stronger should protect younger and weaker ! In scouts we are using it with right hand.
