Hey Guys

Rank: WO2
Level: 7 (level 5 if you want to be all technical 'n stuff ;D )
Position: Sqdn DEPCOM, DT Cdr
Quals: Std First Aid, ITPERTC, AIC, Basic Flight Staff
Awards: Top Jnr NCO, Top Snr NCO, Top Level 5, Lord Strathcona's, Long Service

I hate medals, I think they mean d**k all. They misrepresent cadets; I have met some outstanding NCOs with zero medals and other crappy ones with a chest full of them. Also, I think the Cadet LS medal is the stupidest creation I've seen in my cadet career. I geuss it's to encourge retention, but giving a cadet a shiny medal for being in cadets for 4 years is like giving a baby a medal for breathing. Sigh...medals...I only wear them because my officers tell me I have to...  :-\

How can you get the scuba pin? One of my buddies wants to get that, he already scuba dives.

Sweet with the rocky mountain stuff man, you in Alberta or something?

One of the officers at my cadet corp ran the scuba course so he just gave us the padi scuba pin you can pick up from most dive shops. It's not actually a RCAC pin, it goes under regimental acoutrements or something like that.

Rocky Mountain is a National camp, says it in the title, Rocky Mountain National Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. I'm actually from Ottawa area.  :P

Ah, cool. Thanks man, i'll give him a shout. Yeah, that sounds fun, but I kind of messed up a lot of my chances for advanced training like that by switching from air to army. I Don't regret though. Alright, thanks again man, cheers!

Don't give up on that advanced camp yet, if you fall within the age category, have NSCE and can find some way of getting a CO's recommendation then you can do Rocky Mountain with almost no prior camp experience. I went to camp with a guy only Basic Cadet qualified. I myself only have CL.  :o

It's not actually a RCAC pin, it goes under regimental acoutrements or something like that.

In CATO 46-01(Army Cadet Dress Regulations) you will find that section 22 prohibits the wearing of such pins-
Quote
22. This CATO details the dress policy and
authorized items of dress. If an item of wear is
not included in this CATO, it is not authorized
and shall not be worn.

a. any form of CF uniform or cadet
uniform, past or present, not described
in this CATO;

b. any form of CF Mess Dress, past or
present;

c. badges of rank or insignia of the CF
other than authorized cadet rank and
insignia; and

d. locally produced corps, course and
exchange pins.

Don't just assume that its authorized for wear just because you received the pin from an officer.

My ACO has inspected our cadet corps and she said that they're the same as Rocky Mountain and Connaught pins being worn, officially not allowed, but one of those things they're not really worried about.

Yes things like that are usually passed over, and no one really says anything but why continue the wearing of an unauthorized uniform part? Whats the point? I for one can't stand the pins on the cadet uniforms in the first place, so adding all the unauthorized pins just irks me even more.

I am a convert though so I can understand where your coming from. I used to enjoy jazzing up my uniform as much as I could, but now I prefer the simpler uniforms like the CF tunic for RSMs (just the rank badge, RCAC badge, and medals)

I'm a bit of both, our cadet corp wears old Artillery Patrol Dress (can be seen in the unathorized uniform thread), and in that we wear only rank, NSCE and marksman qualifications. They're for C/Sgts and up, and we only wear those on COs parades and other special occasions. But for my cadet tunic, I like all the flashy pins and badges.
