Allied Cadets

The next generation of Fusiliers

Fusilier Cadets come from the national UK Army Cadet Force Association and Combined Cadet Forces from Schools and Colleges. Our affiliated Army Cadet Forces are in the traditional antecedent Regimental areas of Northumberland, Warwickshire and the West Midlands, Greater London and Greater Manchester.  In all, approximately 40 Companies or detachments wear our badge and hackle with pride.

Fusilier Cadets

Cadet organisations provide challenging adventurous and community activities set against a flavour of military life. They are not recruiting agencies but use military values to develop young people to play a dynamic and constructive role in society although many cadets go on to have careers with the uniformed services. They aim to inspire young people to ‘go further’ and achieve success in life with a spirit of service to community and country, to develop in the young the qualities of good citizens and employees.


Activities in the Cadets encourage the development of leadership and communicative skills, engendering the ability to work successfully as a member of a team. Training often of a challenging and exciting nature is used to foster confidence, initiative, self-reliance, loyalty and respect and a sense of service to others. All key qualities in a good Fusiliers, and in a being a good citizen who can contribute to their communities.
