Are cadets part of the military?


Cadet units in schools are supported financially by the Ministry of Defence, but are not part of the Armed Forces.  The cadet forces follow some of the customs and traditions of their parent service, such as using the same rank structure. Cadets undertake a certain amount of military-themed training, but the organisations are separate. There is no commitment to military service of any kind, for the cadets or adults involved.
