Chaps (ess), After having been a cadet with the PWRR for most of my teenage life I have fond memories of the field camps and the AT. Now playing bigger boys soldiers Iâm all too aware of the cuts and how itâs affected us. Whilst I know that training had/has large proportion of funding from the Army/MOD I also know that due to a benefactor, Surrey ACF had a pot of money, of which interest was used to supplement various activities. I have a friend of mine whoâs son is badgering him to let him join, after having seen all the usual promotional jargon that gets thrown at you. A lot of this is the âcoolâ stuff like AT, and even the DofE scheme. Is training/camps still going on to level where kids are engaged enough to justify expense and time from a parent? I donât wish to sound flippant on the benfits of being on the ACF, however I remember my parents struggling at times (modest background) to help with camp costs, and times now are tighter for many. If PM is preferred I understand so as not to make it a big slagging match. Thanks.
