Default The CCF in 1965

The following images are from a booklet I picked up a couple of days ago. The booklet is titled "The Combined Cadet Force - An information leaflet describing the opportunities open to those entering the teaching profession to serve as officers in school contingents of The Combined Cadet Force".
It lists the CCF Contingents in existence as at 1st August 1965. Many of these contingents (approximately 60) disappeared as part of the educational reforms in 1974 when many Grammar Schools became (shudder) "Comprehensive" Schools.

PL,
Thanks for posting.
My School contingent is listed there (and is still there!) and I was in Merchant Taylor's School, Crosby CCF in 1965.
The photo was taken during annual camp at RSME Chatham 27 July 1969 - exactly 50 years ago!

An interesting document. I was amused by the underlining on the list of the Emanuel School CCF in which I served from 1966. I may have served under the original owner of the pamphlet!
