ACF/CCF Detatchments

Fun, friendship, action and adventure. Personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline.

The Army Cadets are organised into 55 county groupings. Several detatchments are affiliated to The RLC, wear the cap badge and are supported by Regular RLC units.

The Cadet Forces

The Army Cadet Force (ACF)

The Army Cadet Force (ACF) has nearly 40,000 cadets in more than 1,600 detachments all over the country and is one of the biggest and best clubs around. When it comes to fun, friendship, action and adventure, it’s hard to find anything that beats the Army Cadets.

Become an Army Cadet and you’ll be spending your spare time taking part in adventurous activities like rock climbing, mountain biking, archery and abseiling. There will also be plenty of chance to play all your favourite sports because the ACF has competitions for both boys and girls at county, regional and national level.

OK, so you might end up a little wet and muddy, but wouldn’t you rather be having the time of your life with some great new mates, instead of just sitting in front of a TV or computer alone in your room? Find out more about what you could do as a cadet, plus check out some of the videos and complete our online form to register as a cadet.

To join us you need to be aged over 12* and under 18 (*aged 12 by 1 September at the start of year 8 in school or equivalent in Scotland and Northern Ireland).

The Combined Cadet Force (CCF)

There are CCF contingents in over 400 secondary schools all over the UK, offering young people a broad range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and educational activities. Our aim is to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline. Each CCF is an educational partnership between the school and the Ministry of Defence, and a CCF may include Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army or Royal Air Force sections.

CCF units in schools give young people the life skills and self-confidence to take charge of their lives so they can reach their full potential at school and beyond, including in employment.

Each CCF is formed of sections from one or more of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army or the Royal Air Force.

The Royal Logistic Corps

321 EOD & Search Squadron of 11 EOD & Search Regiment RLC hosted a special guest, the Colonel-in-Chief, HRH The Princess Royal, as part of its anniversary commemorating 50 years of operations in Northern Ireland. The Sqn was also joined by the Colonel RLC, Colonel Jon West ADC.

11 EOD & Search Regiment RLC is widely dispersed across 14 locations in the UK. The Regiment routinely responds to around 2,500 operational EOD and Search call-outs each year in support of the police and other major events.

As the sole EOD & Search capability in Northern Ireland, 321 Sqn have a significant workload, operating constantly at Extremely High Readiness and responding operationally several hundred times each year. Last year, the Sqn completed 271 EOD tasks and 64 Search tasks.

The Corps’ vision for 2025 and beyond is bold:

‘A world-class, innovative and adaptable Corps, sustaining continuous activity at home and around the globe. All underpinned by a people-focussed ethos and the exploitation of data and cutting-edge technology.’

The RLC is a unique Corps in terms of size, diversity and experience. No-one can do what it does. But to achieve the Corps’ vision, the Corps’ methods, capabilities and required skills must change.

To achieve this, four objectives will address: People & Ethos, Exploiting Technology, External Integration and Communication and Influence. The RLC has a huge amount to offer the Nation. Please read the strategy, talk about it, be proud of it and share your ideas to help it to evolve.

To explain this further, The RLC’s Strategy on a page can be seen below.

A new strategy for The Royal Logistic Corps

Defence is faced with an increasingly uncertain global and strategic outlook. Defence Support underpins this global activity, but maintaining today’s arrangements to support a force that will be
operating at greater reach and tempo is not an option – a transformation is required.

What is true for Defence Support is true for the Royal Logistic Corps. So the Corps can play its part, the Master General of Logistics, Lt Gen Sir Mark Poffley KCB OBE, has launched the Corps’ new strategy, which will enable The RLC to adjust to the needs of the Army, Defence and the Nation.
