I have been pondering what are these connections worth to the ACF? Don't get me wrong 1st Aid training is a key skill for all cadets and has proven its worth many times over, with numerous brave exploits and lives saved. What I question is who provides this training and a link up with St John's seems a little one way to me. They get their numbers boosted by all the cadets that pass their courses and even some of the idle cadets moving over when they get no where with the ACF, but what does the ACF get in return? A bunch of kit queens in bat capes who strut around on camps in highly pressed Combat 95, with first aid kits the size of a Â¼ ton trailer? When anything goes wrong they are no where to be found if it happens anywhere muddy or if found they stick on a plaster and say call an ambulance? All this seems a little one way to me and I would like to know why the ACF can not stick to this training in house? What does everyone on here think?
