St Dunstan’s College Combined Cadet Force (CCF)
The College, of which Past Master and Aldermanic Sheriff Sir Paul Judge is an old boy and Chair of Governor, is, rightly, very proud of its CCF, many of whom have been seen by our members either as part of a carpet guard at Mansion House when we are invited there, or marching with our float at the Lord Mayor’s Show, which they have done for the past three years.
The College has a history dating back to 1446, initial situated in the City of London and in 1888 was reopened at its current site near Catford to be able to meet the higher educational demands of the time. Today it is an independent school that provides a broad and rich programme of learning for children aged 4 to 18 year olds.
There are currently over 200 cadets on the roll, most choosing to stay with the CCF until they leave College for university. They are ably led by Contingent Commander Major Richard Davies and our Liaison Officer, Head of Army Section and Corps of Drums, St Dunstan's College, Captain Phillips.
