Ladies and Gentlemen of ARRSE. I am appealing for donations of any spare kit that may be of use to my Army Cadet Force Detachment. As you may know, Army Cadets are issued a very basic scale of clothing. They do not get boots (these have to be purchased by the individual), gloves, socks or (in many cases) fleeces. As regards equipment, each unit (in my local area) is issued 10 sets of OG PLCE complete with bergen. However, in a unit of 40 or so cadets, this doesn't go very far so we make it up with old '58 Pattern CEMO. All the '58 Pattern has now been written off and cannot be replaced through the system and this is now getting close to becoming beyond its useful life. We are also a Corps of Drums and wear No.1 Dress for ceremonial occasions, although all of this has to be begged, stolen or borrowed. We do not receive any funding in the form of money to buy extra equipment or uniform. If any of you have anything that you would like to donate to my cadets, please send me a PM. Absolutely anything is welcome, if you can give us one webbing pouch, it would be most appreciated. Basically, if we can't use it, we will offer it to neighbouring units or sell it to raise funds to buy more equipment. I thank you for reading.
