That’s odd - I applied this year and was knocked back but not for that reason. They said my application didn’t show how all of my cadets could benefit from all the cool equipment I wanted to buy. I rewrote the application twice and no luck. I am sure the person reviewing the applications was just anti cadets as I was pretty clear I thought, and so did the others who read the application!
Who is it that actually approves Sqn applications? HQAC or the treasury?
SO1 made it sound like he had reviewed each one personally but I didn’t probe further.
