After WWII, in the 1950’s and 1960’s, when as a member of the Cadet Corps,  hundreds of us were very proud to wear first the JTC and then the CCF uniform.
There were promotions we could aspire to achieve as a Lance Corporal, Corporal, Sergeant, Sergeant Major or even Company Sergeant Major.
What is not always appreciated is that one could also obtain, what was called
1. Cert A – the badge on one’s sleeve in red;
2. Marksman Badge – the badge of a miniature rifle on one’s sleeve;
3. A small brass drum – denoting you were a member of the JTC or CCF band;
4. Cert T – the badge on one’s sleeve in two shades of khaki.
Sadly, we currently do not have within our archives an actual original Cert T and this short announcement is to inquire if out there some past Old Derbeian, ex Derby School pupil or even a family member may have one to donate and to go into our ever growing archives.
Your help and assistance would certainly be greatly appreciated.
