Just a quick note, I was thinking the other day about the ACF and the CCF and how they get funding from the Army to operate etc. Now, the Army provides grants to purchase kit and whatever is needed. The cadet forces then goes and buys this kit from a local shop at a very marked up price. What grips my poo is how much this cost; and why doesnât the Army either just supply the kit to the ACF/CCF or allow the cadet forces to buy directly of the Army. I mean, it isnât like the cadets are taking the Armies resources as all they have to do is order more than they need, the company who makes the gear then makes more at the local (bulk price). Simples!
