There are four cadet corps in canada that wear a maroon beret . My corps was affiliated with the airborne regiment and we wear maroon berets. But, what bugs me is when people diss us because of the color of our berets . We didn't get to chose the color . We did nothing wrong . So i don't know why people hate on us for it.  We're not claiming that we're airborne ,  nor that we're para qualified . Don't hate the player hate the game ....

My corps is affiliated with the airborne regiment

Airborrne Regiment was disbanded in 1995, how are you affiliated to it still?

I was looking through recent pics of the CTC Blackdown Cadet Summer training camp in CFB Borden and noticed a pic of a boy with maroon beret and airborne cap badge.  I was wondering why a cadet corps would maintain an affiliation with a disbanded unit.  My search brought me to this thread.  Here is the pic from the CTC Blackdown Facebook page.  June 11, 2015.  https://www.facebook.com/CSTCBlackdown/photos/pcb.979777972055125/979776395388616/?type=1&theater

I worked Blackdown in 2012, i'm not sure how it is now. But from my understanding, they were affiliated with the Parachute Training Centre not the CAR.
