The Iraqis used to salute with the palm out, I'm not sure quite what they do now exactly. I can't find a picture after searching through 11 pages of google, but I know there were videos of him in a meeting with his army advisors that showed his weird salute.

And in the British Navy, at least, the swabbies used to salute with their palms facing back, to hide all of the grime that was on them.

Actually itís a weird three-finger thing for the BSA (Boy Scouts of America). Cub scouts do the two finger thing.

USAF: Lower arm parallel with the ground, arm bent at 45 degree angle, palm facing down, finger tips positioned to just below but not touching the brim of the hat.

Here the boy scouts salute with 3 fingers too, covering the nail of the fourth finger with the thumb, meaning that the bigger (stronger) protect the smaller (weaker). Don't know if it's the same salute though.

Topic: Turkish AF


Upper arm parallel to the ground and palm of hand facing the ground. Index finger touching the right shade of the hat or cap w/ lower arm forming a 45 degree angle w/ the upper arm (naturally). The whole arm will not move a micron.
No salute w/o hat/cap. No salute in buildings. Just standing at full ten-hut.

AF Saluting while deployed- Head down, looking every other direction than where the officer/ enlisted member is so as to not make eye contact and to avoid saluting. This goes for officers and enlisted.

French:
right hand, shoulder to elbow paralel to ground, palm facing front, middle finger at the edge of Kepi/beret/hat/helmet...hand has to be raised from the side in a sort of rotary movement until elbow flexes and hand falls down twrd head, middle finger to edge of hat in a sharp motion. salute ends in reverse motion and palm of hand slams noisily the side of the body.
