Dyfed And Glamorgan Army Cadets

Home to almost 1000 cadets and almost 220 adult volunteers in 62 detachments

At Dyfed and Glamorgan Army Cadet Force we pride ourselves in providing the complete cadet experience to boys and girls from 12 (year 8 in school) until they reach 18 years old. Also providing the opportunity for those over 18 and under 65 to become Adult Instructors.

We have 6 areas from Cardiff in the south to Pembroke in the west, Ceredigion in the north west and a Corps of Drums detachment based at Llanelli. Our County headquarters are located at Bridgend.

We are affiliated and badged to The Royal Welsh, Welsh Guards, Queens Dragoon Guards, Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers, Royal Logistics Corps, Royal Corps of Signals and Queen Alexandra Royal Army Nursing Corps.

Cadets have the opportunity to learn military skills from fieldcraft, shooting, navigation, drill, signals, first aid and skill at arms. Also there is the opportunity to take part in adventure training from climbing, kayaking, expedition, mountain biking, abseiling etc. There is also a large emphasis on sports of all kinds and the opportunity to represent the county.

We pride ourselves on our achievements on The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme (DofE) and CVQO BTEC awards and encourage the cadets and adults to participate. We actively take part in charity efforts to raise funds for all charities and raise the profile of the army cadet force.

Although COVID19 has put a dampener on training and stopped this years camps, the adult volunteers and cadets have adapted their training to deliver online, but slowly we are starting to return to face to face training and will be looking forward to attending next years camps.
