Apologies if this has been covered before but I've got limited access to the site at work so can't trawl if it's been done. What's the coup with cadet Officer's? (i.e. instructors holding the rank of 2 Lt and above)? Is a 2 Lt the equivalent of a TA 2 Lt? Am I required to flip a cadet Officer the finger (sorry, I mean salute!) and call him/her Sir? And which is the lowest rank that this applies to? Do cadet Officer's still have to attend RCB and Sandbags? I've heard so many conflicting answers on this, even from within my own Unit so I thought I'd throw it open to the floor.
