Just a quickie...
Are CCF NCOs allowed to wear the stable belt of their parent unit (e.g. Rifles etc.) of just the CCF stable belt?
Thanks
It's the CCF. You can wear a bra and suspenders.
Nobody cares.

Accurate, Brief and Clear. Well done.

PS- I agree, on a Friday night the young lad should be out drinking and shagging and not worrying about army cadet fashion. He's 15 for fucks sakes!!!!

What a surprise, a kid asks a question and a low self ahsteem fcuk up runs in and decide to slag the CCF off to make himself feel better by arguing with a kid. :roll:

It's different for each school isn't it as to whether you can wear stable belts? Just ask one of your instructors.

Ask your Contingent commander, You probably wont be allowed to wear regimental stable belts though.

Don't see why not. I've seen at least one fiftyish female teacher in an RRF stable belt, accessorised with a black fleece, no beret and hair over the collar looked every inch the pride of the CCF - and they wonder why the children can't dress properly.

The lad was asking a genuine question. FFS, why the flak?
A lot of the CCF of today are the squaddies of tomorrow.
Vocation for you both in the Army Recruiting Office. (As if!)
Incoming!!

Oh very good point Bjw.

Squaddies of tomorrow? That's not what they think

I can't help noticing that my cadets would ask me if they can wear the stable belt of the regiment they are badged to (and yes they can) but this future Rupert (as most CCF like to style themselves, IME) hasnt thought of that obvious route, and I wonder why? Is it because his SSI is a mere 'ranker' and his opinion isn't worth a damn to a future young thruster and leader of men?

I've seen at least one fiftyish female teacher in an RRF stable belt, accessorised with a black fleece, no beret and hair over the collar looked every inch the pride of the CCF - and they wonder why the children can't dress properly.
Seen her double at SMP, but with an unshaped PWRR beret plonked on her bouffant. Ridiculous

Chicks wearing infantry kit is ridiculous and only happens in the cadets and the TA. Why oh why do we have a reserve of girly TA infantry officers?

I could say something extremely sexist and reactionary here, but I am going to restrain myself... :x

As a rule I'd say no.

When I'm at CCF I wear the CCF stable belt. Simple reason, I try my best to look good and proffessional when I'm at CCF and I'm sure you put a lot of effort in too. But when you look at all the other, lets face it, w*nkers in your CCF contigent, would you feel right looking like your a reg?

In my opinion, from a cadet, it lets the army down. Wear the CCF one, but try your best to hide it.

Editted to add that the w*nkers comment is from my experience at my contingent, half the twats don't want to be there.

My CO has okayed it. With respect to me considering my SSI as simply an "ex-ranker", that isn't true. When I asked him he told me to ask the CO, but that doesn't mean I don't respect ex-ranker SSIs. In fact, I think it would be pretty naive if I didn't respect the opinion of a an ex-SNCO, as they probably know more about the micro- management of a unit then even a senior rupert does. And on the issue of most CCF members becoming ruperts, that doesn't apply to my unit, which is from a comprehensive school. Couldn't comment on other ones though.
