Have any cadets here ever been on an exercise with their affiliated unit? My CO promised me that we will be going, but in September. I trust him, but I have heard about that it is against the rules, and I have heard it is not.

Also, what do the reserves/reg force guys think about cadets participating?

It's a great idea in theory, but there maybe some different ways of approaching this. Instead of going on a Reserve or Regular Force exercise, have some soldiers from your affiliated unit plan out an FTX and accompany your cadet unit on an exercise. Thereby they would be providing you guidance, while you still had control over the FTX. For example, a weekend where you would play "Flags" and apply all your Map and Compass and Fieldcraft knowledge at a location such as the Niagra escarpment. How's that sound?

And by the way, why don't you head up this section of the War Diary as a Moderator? Your contributions are well thought out and noticed by all.

I agree with the Patriot. On our ex's we are usually moving around a lot, not getting much sleep and doing engineer specific tasks that cadets wouldn't be allowed to help out on. It really wouldn't work. However, I think that more communication between the unit and our affiliated cadet unit might be usefull, as per Patriots suggestion of having reserve soldiers help out with your ex.

I have no problem with cadets coming out with the battery for a live FTX. But autourizations have to go all the way up the chian and back down (both chains of command). It is a long tedious and drawnout affair and you must have all your T's crossed and I's dotted and that doesn't even guarentee approval. I agree with patriot, its easier for you to plan the ex and ask your affiliated unit to join you. A lot less hassle and paperwork.
