Norfolk Army Cadet Force

The ACF is a national youth movement which is sponsored by the British army. We take both boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Our activities cover military subjects, sport and adventurous training. We are a partner organisation to the Duke of Edinburgh award and run BTEC courses for our cadets.The Youngsters can learn many skills for life, discipline and commitment and have fun at the same time.

The cadets can obtain many qualifications as they progress through their cadet career as well as promotions and can finish up at 18 as a Regimental Sergeant Major with a BTEC, DofE, FAW as well as certificates in parachuting, shooting, expeditions, sports and music.

Norfolk Army Cadet Force has over 550 cadets and 155 adult volunteers in 23 detachments spread across the county. In essence we are a youth organisation which is sponsored by the Ministry of Defence. As such a lot of what we do is funded and the cost to parents is minimal. 

Our detachments are organised into three sub units as follows:

Britannia Company which covers the North Norfolk area, has 8 detachments and a Company Headquarters at Dereham.

The Cadet Norfolk Artillery (Crosskill’s) Battery covers the East of the county, has 8 detachments and a Battery Headquarters at the Aylsham Road Reserve Centre in Norwich.

The Cadet Norfolk Engineer Squadron with 7 detachments looks after the South and West of the county, Squadron Headquarters are at Thetford.
