Army Cadet Force during WW2


The Army Cadet Force (ACF) is a voluntary youth organisation which offers military type training to 12 to 18 year olds. Although it is sponsored by the Ministry of Defence the ACF is not a branch of the military and the cadets do not have to enlist in the Army although a proportion do. The ACF is a registered charity which can trace its beginnings back to 1859, when it was formed in order to prepare youths to enlist in the army.

The photos on this page were taken during the later stages of WW2.
