St Dunstan’s College Combined Cadet Force (CCF)

The College, of which Past Master and Aldermanic Sheriff Sir Paul Judge is an old boy and Chair of Governor, is, rightly, very proud of its CCF, many of whom have been seen by our members either as part of a carpet guard at Mansion House when we are invited there, or marching with our float at the Lord Mayor’s Show, which they have done for the past three years.

The aim of the CCF, which is very popular with College students, is to give cadets the chance to learn more about themselves and the world around them through activities that are challenging, worthwhile and fun. The activities are designed to develop qualities of leadership, endurance, resourcefulness, self-reliance, responsibility, and a sense of public service.

There are currently over 200 cadets on the roll, most choosing to stay with the CCF until they leave College for university. They are ably led by Contingent Commander Major Richard Davies and our Liaison Officer, Head of Army Section and Corps of Drums, St Dunstan's College, Captain Phillips.
