Many Squadrons will have cadets of other nationalities, although I’m particularly thinking about Ukrainian cadets at the moment.
Is there a way of our cadets expressing their non-UK national identity while in uniform? Perhaps based on examples of regular personnel on international exchange? I suspect I know the answer based on RAFAC dress regs, but perhaps there are other things that could be done.
The international cadets who do that at Cranwell are members of foreign armed forces who just so happen to be doing their training at Cranwell. It doesn’t mean that anyone in the RAF who isn’t British wears a different flag.
The short answer is that our dress regs don’t permit the wearing of another national emblem for a member of the RAF or RAFAC.
Is Ukraine part of IACE? Just thinking that if they wore a second brassard with their home identify might work but it would need to go through the diplomatic channels. It would be similar to the Czech & polish Sqns during WWII.
Normally though when you join the military/military linked organisation you only display that nations insignia unless you are one attachment.
Any displaced Ukrainian air cadet might be able to get a national marker which the cadet has the option to wear or not.
