                                        A Brief History of
                                   Invercargill Cadet Corps Unit
        ICU was formed by the local YLS section of the Otago Southland regiment territorial force.
                                  The key members of the YLS section were
                         SSGT Alan Blackley                  Cpl Julie Reading
                         SGT Paul Cavanagh                   Bombardier Vaughan Winsloe
   The unit was formed and managed and trained by the TF unit while offers were found to staff it: Geoff
   Hazlett (Maj Rtd) was appointed the first acting unit commander and Neil Hughes was the first civilian
   appointed in an acting officer role. The territorial force continued to conduct the training under the
   supervision of the unit officers until the unit was recognised in 2000. The recognition process involved the
   unit maintaining a stable role of cadets and being assessed on their ability to conduct training within the
   approved boundaries.
   Our first camp was held at a camp at Taringatua and was organised and run by the TF YLS section.
   2000 Cpl Julie Reading resigned from the Territorials and joined the unit as an officer in the role of
   training officer.
   2001 Maj Hazlett stepped down from the command role and moved over to the Parent Support Committee.
   Acting 2LT Hughes was appointed acting Unit Commander.
   Shortly after we had another officer came on board, Richard Eade.
   2002 A2LT Hughes completed his commissioning course and was confirmed as the Unit Commander and
   his Commission was appointed. .
   Supplementary staff members - Mrs Jackie Cussen, Mr Marcus McMahon.
   Major Don Kelly also joined us in about 2002, he came from the local ATC squadron where he served as a
   Squadron Leader and their Unit Commander. He was appointed the position of 2IC which he held until
   2LT Hughes stepped down from the Unit Commanders role in 2003.
   2003 Major Don Kelly was recommended as CUCDR and this was confirmed by headquarters. Since then
   we have:
   LT Jarrod Scott transferred from No.28 Squadron, Gore 2006, transferred back in 2008
   2LT Richards commissioned 2006, transferred to 12SQD 2008
   2LT Kelly commissioned Oct 2006, moved to Super List 2008
   2Lt Dawson commissioned May 2007
   2LT Hughes commissioned 2010
   2LT Thomas commissioned May 2011
   2011 Major Kelly stepped down as Unit Commander, 2LT RM Dawson was recommended as CUCDR and
   this was confirmed by headquarters.
   LT Hughes was promoted to Captain NR Hughes as of Jan 2011.
   2LT Dawson was promoted to Lieutenant as of May 2011
   Ms Whelan is heading to Ohakea for her Commissioning Course in October

Over the years we have seen hundreds of cadets come into the unit.
We have conducted numerous outdoor camps and exercises.
     Some cadets have joined the armed forces, and succeeded in their chosen fields.
     Others have tried to join and not been able to gain entry due to physical and mental constraints.
     We have had cadets come in shy and quiet, but left as self confident adults.

                           What’s happening now and in the future for the Unit?

       Our aim is for us to continue to strengthen our position To be recognized as New Zealand’s youth
        organisation by choice
       Continue to refine and improve our training programmes and lessons.
       Increase the quantity and quality of our camps and training exercises in a safe manner. Include 1 day and
        overnight exercises and tramps.
       Prepare cadets for leadership and other courses.
       Prepare cadets for area and national competitions.
       To develop confident, responsible young citizens who are valued within their community by providing
        them, within a military framework, safe, enjoyable and challenging opportunities.

anyone else who has the interest of NZ Cadet Forces.

              NZ Cadet Corps Badges of Rank
                 The NZ Cadet Corps follows the Army Infantry tradition of rank delineation.

      Cadet Ranks

                    The starting point is Cadet. There is no symbol to represent this grade and the cadet wears
                    blank shoulder slides.

The                 first rank is Cadet Lance Corporal. Their rank is indicated by one chevron worn on each
                    shoulder slide. A chevron is a bent bar of V shape and has been used to indicate rank for
                    many centuries. The word originates from the Latin capriole which means a pair of

The                  second rank is that of Cadet Corporal. Their rank is indicated by two chevrons worn on
                     each shoulder slide. The Lance-corporal and Corporal ranks are referred to as Junior Non-
                     Commissioned Officer (JNCO) ranks

                    The third rank is Cadet Sergeant. Their rank is indicated by three chevrons worn on each
                    shoulder slide. The Sergeant rank is the first rank in the Senior Non-Commissioned Officer

                    Above the Cadet Sergeant is the Cadet Staff Sergeant. Their rank has a crown located
                    above the three chevrons and, like the others, is worn on the shoulder slides. The Cadet
                    Staff Sergeant is the last of the NCO’s to wear their rank on the shoulder.

                    The top rank held by a Cadet NCO is Cadet Warrant Officer Class 2. Their rank is worn as
a                   wrist badge. It is a crown surrounded by two laurel leaves and is the only rank still worn

on                  the arm. The Cadet Warrant Officer has plain shoulder slides the same as the newly joined

                     The top rank is “Cadet Under Officer”. There is no direct equivalent in the Army and this
      rank is used to define those cadets who are most likely going to proceed to a full commission in the NZ
                    Cadet Forces when they are old enough. Their rank is a series of horizontal stripes across
                    their shoulder slides.
               NZ Cadet Corps Badges of Rank
                                 The Cadet Officer ranks are the same as in the Army.

                         The first rank is that of Second Lieutenant (NZCF). It is a square emblem embroided
                         diagonally onto the shoulder slides. It has a representative star embossed within the
                         border. The star, seen most clearly on the Service Dress rank indicator, is a modified
                         representation of the Star of the Knight Grand Cross of the military division of the Most
                         Honourable order of Bath, one of Britain’s four senior orders of Knighthood.

                         It is generally referred to as a “pip”. The word “Lieutenant” is French and pronounced
                         “Leftenant” in the British and Commonwealth Armies. You will hear it pronounced as
                          “lewtenant” from US Forces.

                          The second rank up is full Lieutenant (NZCF) referred to as “Lieutenant”. This rank is
                          indicated by two “pips” with the upper pip located towards the centre of the shoulder
                          slides. You may hear a Lieutenant being referred to as a Subaltern.

                         The third rank is that of Captain (NZCF). This is the senior Subaltern rank and is
                         indicated by three “pips” worn on the shoulder slides. An Army Captain rank is not the
                         same as a Navy Captain rank. A Navy Captain is equivalent to an Army Colonel which
                         is a very senior rank.

                         The top rank achievable by a Cadet Officer in the NZ Cadet Corps is that of Major
                         (NZCF). A Major’s rank is indicated by a crown located on the shoulder slides in the
                         same position as the first “pip” of a Second Lieutenant. A “Major” rank is the first of the
                         “Field Rank” classification.

     Your Officers go through a much longer service period and have courses to qualify on as they progress.
     It can take up to one year of supplementary service and another year of efficient service plus the successful completion of the
     Commissioning Course to become a Second Lieutenant (NZCF).
     They have to complete another two years of efficient service and pass more courses before reaching Lieutenant (NZCF).
     To reach Captain (NZCF) they have to complete another four years of efficient service as a Lieutenant (NZCF) and pass more
     courses. To achieve the rank of Major (NZCF) they will have had to complete a further five years of efficient service as a
     Captain (NZCF), complete more courses and hold the appointment of Cadet Unit Commander.
     In total it takes 12 years, the successful completion of numerous courses, command of a Cadet Unit and the approval of the
     Commandant to reach the senior Cadet Officer rank.
