The Combined Cadet Force (February 1958)
CCF - Parent's Day
The Combined Cadet Force, a Friday afternoon compulsory ritual organised by the History master who called himself Major Thomas. We called him Tommy Junior unless there was no danger of being overheard when other terms of affection might be employed! A few years ago when government was discussing how to control the youth of today a politician suggested re-introducing C.C.F.s in schools. The Daily Telegraph letters page complained that C.C.F.s were a breeding ground for sadistic teachers and made a direct reference to F.G.S.’s cadet force. Just who could have been in someone’s mind?
