I am a civ com member and former VRT/RAFAC Officer. I have been advised by our Squadron CO that there is a new rule banning the consumption of alcohol in front of cadets. This apparently now applies to civ com members and guests. Before I fire off an unpleasant letter to the Commandant, can anyone confirm that this is correct?
It’s 100% true. Your CO is correct.
And not just in front of cadets. You can’t sneak off for a few beers and come back either!!
I mean irrelevant of the official rules, an OC running a Sqn dining in night could make it a dry night anyway and as a guest that’s the rules.
But the rules have changed - if there are cadets present no alcohol is to be served including external guests and parents.
The actual last sentence in the formal function section is:
Put simply, if CFAVs are organising an event where cadets are to be present, alcohol is not to be served.
Also let’s not debate the pros/cons of the new policy here. We adjust have a thread for that
