    Well, I my dad has been in the RAF for 23 years
    and my I add that's 23 years in the REAL military so I think those 3 years of a hobby do not have much on 23 years of professional service

    Hmmm, I think someone who has spent an hour a week for the past three years dressing up and pretending to be a soldier deserves as much respect as someone who has spent 23 years in one fo the greatest forces on the planet.

    Yes, but from personal experience I can tell you that what you're saying about the CCF, where I live anyway, is completely untrue.

    Just because your dads been in the RAF for 23 years doesn't mean you can openly criticise the CCF

    I'm sorry, but we're not knob jockies, we don't, for the most part, want to be soldiers, we don't think were hard because we wear cams and we don't play with blanks, let alone dangerously.

    CCF = wannabe soldiers playing with guns, often dangerously even with blanks, look like sacks of shite and automatically go into the 'I am in the military' routine..and think 'oh I can go and fook around on bases for the proper military or oooo aren't I a hard nut cause I am wearing camos'...in conclusion, the CCF are knob jockies...period. Nuff said.
    I don't particularly need to attack what the CCF does, as long as I can prove that a banana and a packet of crisps are more useful than it.

    I am a member of the CCF Naval Section and I enjoy it. We do some fun stuff like powerboating, yachting, and sailing all free of charge. There are also things on during the holidays: I have been on six or seven mountaineering trips sponsored by the CCF, and there are also general military and adventurous camps, and loads of free courses you can go on (scuba diving, climbing, sailing, and others). Not everyone would like it, but it's all very good fun if you do like that sort of thing.

    As for how "useful" it is, I'm not sure. It seems to work as a recruiting organisation (which it claims not to be!), every year people from my school join the armed forces mainly because of good CCF experiences.

    obviously, some of you guys have a real prob with the CCF. Basically, it's just a youth group and learning a bit of disapline has never harmed anyone. Sadly, we need an army and the CCF doesn't pretend to be part of the army. I have upmost respect for members of the forces who protect us on a daily basis. Many students I know hadn't even considered the forces as a career option but the CCF has opened their eyes to it. Surely, it can't be a prob if good A level students now apply to the Forces it canb only be good for all involved.
