HAC - Sponsored Cadet Unit
A new HAC-sponsored cadet unit was established at the City of London Academy—Islington in 2012, the 70th anniversary year of the original HAC Cadet Battalion. Formation of the unit provided the Company with an opportunity to extend its charitable activities to include young people on the City fringes. Whilst many cadets join the Regular or Reserve services, the main purpose of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is to provide personal development and citizenship training for the young people who join. The unit is badged HAC.
