Not to be confused with the ACF, Marine cadets are similar to Army Cadets but are usually found in SCC Units. Despite the "elite" title and photogenic appearence on parades, they are basically Sea Cadets in Army uniforms but not as good as the ACF as its more like the LoF. Some marine cadets ultimately aspire to a career in the Royal Marines and a future of Naked Rollmat Fighting and questionable drinking games.

These Cadets, similarly to Para Cadets (see Walts) have a belief that they too are Special Forces, when they are in-fact, just cadets with an easy fitness test to pass for entry. Whilst some are very good, just as with other cadet forces, for many this preconception of being born to excellence often stands in the way of their ever being half-way competent.
