No it won't be take it or leave it, it'll be a 3 line whip and we'll all be expected to turn out, some over promoted type will turn up take a cursory look at the cadets, do some grip and grims and then go off for tea and sandwiches, leaving everyone else standing around like yellow citrus fruits, making their way home wondering if they'll get the time back. We have sector and wing parades and apart from a chance to meet people and chew the cud, they serve no real purpose.
Supporting RAFA is a different thing entirley. RAFA branches actually take an interest in the cadets and appreciate what they do for them. Many RAFA branches rely on cadets to do things for them as their membership is getting older, so it's in their interest to be like they are towards the cadets.
The only reason we'll be involved in RAF 100 is to pad out parades and so on and for those in the ivory towers to say look what we've done.
