Im just looking for advice on what boots at the minute
Given the fact that you want some Brown non-gortex lined boots then I would have to say taking all factors into account that the best bet would be to buy some non-gortex lined boots that are brown.I'm a cadet and I'm looking at buying a pair of non-gortex lined brown boots, would anybody have any suggestions on what boots to buy?

Lowa really are very good boots. I've just sold my old Altberg ones to some mug on eBay for £60. I hope his feet are a size smaller than the boots.Don't buy these boots. They are rubbish and made of paper thin weak leather. Get on eBay and start bidding for new/nearly new lowas. You won't regret it and you'll thank me for the advice.

Lowas are for winners indeed, however the OP is not a winner, he is a cadet and does not need a pair of 150 quid mountain boots.
Get yourself down the market and get some cheapo 20 quid fake Magnums that come with a free torch or something. All you're gonna be using them for is mincing about the shooting range and the odd weekend of camping with guns. You won't need boots that are capable of taking you up the North face of the Eiger.
When I was a cadet everyone just wore fucked secondhand Combat Highs or DMS. We did alright.
Alternatively these look a bit like Lowas but are less than half the price. They'll probably be alright for cadetting:
To reiterate my point again:
These boots are for a child who will be wearing them very occasionally at weekends and one or two nights a week in a portacabin.
They don't need the Boxhead SF seal of approval. They just need to look cool so the lad feels part of the team.
