  • Royal County Of Berkshire ACF

Two dedicated Army Cadet Force (ACF) adult volunteers have been selected for a Cadet Forces Commission after completing the Army Cadet Commissioning Board (ACCB) process.

The two volunteers, 2Lt Ed Knott and 2Lt James Johnstone, were selected from a pool of highly qualified candidates based on their leadership skills, experience, and dedication to the ACF.

Ed Knott, who is the detachment commander the Maidenhead detachment, has been with the ACF for 5 years and runs a very successful unit. Ed said, "I am honoured to have been selected for the Cadet Forces Commission and look forward to continuing to serve the ACF in a leadership role."

James Johnstone, who is the County Adventure Training Officer, has been with the ACF for 6 years and supports the delivery of all adventure training across the county. James said, "I am proud to have been selected for the Cadet Forces Commission and am committed to continuing to support the development of young people in the ACF."

The ACCB process is designed to select only the most qualified and dedicated volunteers for a Cadet Forces Commission. Candidates are evaluated on their leadership abilities, communication skills, and commitment to the ACF's mission of developing young people into responsible adults.

The Army Cadet Force is a youth organization that provides challenging and fun activities for young people aged 12-18. The organisation is run by volunteers, many of whom are former cadets themselves.
