How Do I Join London Army Cadets?

The cadet training year follows that of the school calendar year, beginning in September and ending in June. Youth wanting to join army cadets must be between the ages of 12 – 18.  We can not enroll people younger than 12 years of age.  

September and October are the best months to join as most new recruits join in these months.
