Cadet demotion

#1
A young cadet is made upto L/Cpl after being a cadet for 6 months......4 months in and he's training recruits drill etc etc.

Pulled before his Platoon Commander and given a dressing down, for not saluting a officer. Fails couple of testing boards at 2 star and is striped of his rank.

Whats your views on this situation peeps????

Stripped has two 'P's' and I'm going to eat some Pork pie.

My nephew was bust in cadets. He wasn't taking it seriously - as it sounds your cadet wasn't - so he deserved it. Where is the argument?

Being busted from lance-jack didn't do George MacDonald Fraser any harm.

Pork pie sounds good.

Sounds like the cadet doesn't put out.

He has only been in 4 months and he is teaching?
Talk about the blind leading the blind.












Who did he have to sleep with to get promoted after only 6 months?

Obviously I am only aware of the details quoted above.

Promoted too soon? And then not given the support he is entitled to and deserves. It is often overlooked that cadets are - until age 18 - children / young adults. They need guidance and advice from the Instructors and senior cadets.

Just my thoughts - for what they are worth.

If he wasn't pulling his weight or gobby or walty and disturbing t'others then fair 'nuff. Otherwise, it's plain bollox... come on it's the ACF, not Woodentop stuff. My opinion is on the side of the kid. Maybe he was going to "out" the officer for being a fiddler?

Any Cadet who has been promoted after only six months is clearly not ready to be a Cadet NCO.

I would question if he had enough knowledge of his Basic and 1 Star subjects to be an effective Cadet NCO.

This sounds like a case of a young person being promoted much too early and suffering the consequences.

His Adults are at fault here.

Thats what I believed to be the case. Thank you for your constructive comment

My opinion is Pork pie is lovely with English mustard.

my dear sir, tripe with a good lashing if vinegar is the order of the day, a noticeable feast of epic proportion.
