Can anyone give me some advice on timescales for promotion? I've been serving in the CCF for over 5 years at my College and completed both CCF Basic and KGVI advanced courses. I'm currently i/c our Army section. We have over 180 cadets and according to my SSI enough numbers to warrant my promotion from Lt to Capt. Every time I push for it however I'm given another lame excuse - this time its length of service, previously not having enough cadets or too many officers. I'm confident its not because I'm crap, but that our OC is an old boy who I'm sure is way out of his depth. I'm strugglnig to find some proof however to prove my point.
