British Army Cadet Waterproof Jacket - DPM
The British Army Cadet Waterproof Jacket is a DPM camouflage jacket designed by British Army Cadets for use by the Cadet Forces. This official Ministry of Defense and British Army sponsored organization is composed of 41,000+ cadets and 10,000 cadet force adult volunteers. These jackets were designed by the Cadet Forces to be worn by both the Cadets and the Commissioned Officers who act as instructors in the Cadet Forces.
The Army Cadet Forces of the UK are one of the most popular civil associations that is directly sponsored by both the Ministry of Defense and the British Army. Cadets and Cadet Officers take part in core subjects like navigation, shooting, first aid, and focus on the Cadet and Community. The training that Cadets receive will be military style but with civilian applications for those who want the Cadet experience but do not plan on a military career.
One of the more interesting aspects of the Army Cadet Forces is that the Cadets get to design their own equipment. This equipment gets designed by Cadets and then is sent for review by the British Ministry of Defense HQ Support Command - Cadet Branch. Once Cadet designed equipment is reviewed and approved, the Ministry of Defense will pay for production and it is then sold through Cadet Forces shops in the UK. This method of production allows Cadet Forces to provide input and participate in the design process of their essentials, like this waterproof jacket.
