Sea Cadets?

Shouldn't there be a separate board for the Sea Cadets as well?

The ACF board on ARRSE seems to be quite popular, so I can imagine a SCC board would go down well here too.

Just cos they're bigger than you doesn't make them bullies :p
Have you seen the gits in Raleigh marching around like they are the next best thing. Even had a cadet P.O try and order me about once, put an end to that quickly :evil:

PMSL, i was a Cadet Under Officer in the CCF.I had more badges than a Scout when i was a Cadet Coxn.Cooks branch badge from Cookery course at HMS Pembroke,Skill at arms 1st Class from Barry Buddon,3 GCB's.I think the SCC is a great way of keeping the kids off the street and getting them to be part of the Community.I was a POMA(SCC) a nuber of years ago and had a great time at TS's Vancouver,Dreadnought and the unit in Cambridge.

i teach them sea cadets and i am all too aware that a lot of the current training team at Raleigh "hate" sea Cadets so i coach mine that join to keep thier gobs shut, pretend they know nothing and keep thier heads down.

last time i was at raleigh i ended up toe to to with a SWOB in the POs Mess and put her straight on a few things...

yes most cadets turned recruits are gob shites - the system makes them that way - it tells them they are better than civy teenagers, (sound familiar) and tells them they are the next generation of matelots/airmen/squaddies yet when they get to thier part 1 - most treat them like SH1T and assume the worst. not the cadets fault and a lot of you go out your way to make them quit when it was thier lifes dream to be a jenny wren or a jack tar.

ease up next time you meet one eh? They admire and respect you from the minute they meet you - you dont have to impress them, they are already in awe of you as you are "the real deal"

Not wanting to swing the lamp too much but when Sea Cadets joined the Service through HMS Ganges, they were so highly thought of that they were nearly always made the "Leading Junior" of their class, Class Leader in HMS Raleigh speak.

Sorry to disalution you Ratrat, but the worse thing I did when I entered Ganges in 1950 was to mention I was a Sea Cadet. The reply was " well, we will soon knock that out of you" They tried but didn't succeed.

But I suppose times change - hope so.

I have been involve with the Navy Cadets (as they are known in Oz) for the last three years. This is a new T/S and have a great bunch of kids. Prior to that I was a Scout Leader for 35 years

good stuff sidon!

i do think you learn a lot about yourself when you start teaching young people. plus the satisfaction you get from them learning is fantastic.

I was a Sea Cadet in the 80s and then joined up. Still in and it did me no harm whatsoever. Didn't have too many snags in training and certainly knew how to keep my kit up to speed better than all the landlubbers...

To all the SCC units out there, keep up the good work. To anyone thinking of helping out - go for it, it makes a difference.

:D Oh well, enough from some old fool of a sailor....
