Thought I'd introduce myself

I'm Becca :] a Corporal from 111 Sunderland Squadron. Our squadron is hoping to set up a new website and we were asked to create something to go in it. I made this:

Air Cadet Rite Of Passage:

You are not a proper air cadet if you cant tick more than 5 boxes:

[] You have stood on parade for over an hour
[] You have fainted on parade
[] You have spent at least 3 hours straight on your shoes
[] Then someone stood on them
[] You have had a camp fling
[] You have had a camp nickname
[] You know at least 3 air cadet related songs...
[] You sing them loudly at every opportunity
[] You have been severely bollocked [by that i mean your ears are ringing afterwards]
[] You have spent AGES needing the toilet on an expediton
[] You have dropped the rifle
[] You have pissed about when you thought the staff werent looking...
[] They were looking.
[] You have spent ALL DAY on sentry [if you are 16 or over]
[] You have injured yourself while pissing about on camp
[] Theres at least one really enbarrasing photo of you in your unniform
[] You have been asked by the public if you are in the army/ raf/ girl scouts ect...
[] A charv has took the piss out of your uniform
[] A charv has shouted abuse while you were on parade
[] You have been bollocked for something you didnt do

Hee! I'm not a cadet anymore, but that list made me smile a lot. It's so true! Good times :)
oh I'm sorry, i forgot my manners,
I'm LAC squiers from squadron 280 athabasca
and i have a few suggestions on that list of yours:

if you ever fainted and created a domino effect on the floor (everybody else falls)
if the toliet at the camp flooded, and you came back with soaked shoes/socks
if you get awarded the best uniform award and then show up next week with the worst uniform
if you pointed a loaded rifle at the officer when it didn't work
if you march at a prarade late,and relise you forgot your belt
if you cheat from a parent who was in the milatary
if you have a "record" for your uniform at your squardron
if you corrected your officer/warrentofficer more than 10 times a night
