All Cadets & Staff,
3WG Logistics Flight have recalled all heavyweight Service Dress Jumpers. These jumpers are no longer being produced by Defence and are needed by those Squadrons in very cold climates. Warmer Squadrons are now only permitted to wear lightweight SD jumpers.
Can I please ask that all cadets therefore bring their SD jumper along to parade this Thursday? (Regardless if it is heavyweight or lightweight).
Any cadet who has been issued a heavyweight jumper will return home empty handed (with a lightweight jumper ordered for issue in February), while those who have a lightweight jumper will be able to take their jumper back home.
If you have any questions regarding this request, contact the Squadron Supply Officer, LAC(AAFC) Griffiths.
On behalf of the Commanding Officer 305SQN AAFC.
This Thursday is the final parade night of the year, and is therefore the final week before the End of Year Parade and Awards Ball. Uniform this week will be DPUs to allow you the whole week to prepare your uniform to an immaculate standard for Saturday.
Gentlemen: You are all required to ensure your hair meets standards before arriving on Saturday morning. This means hair is off the collar and ears, and is neat all over. Those cadets who are of shaving age are also be expected to shave prior to your arrival (there should be no visible hairs on the face).
Ladies: You are also to ensure that your hair meets standards before arriving on Saturday. Questions about this can be directed to the CWOFF.
ALL CADETS are to ensure that their SD pants have been appropriately laundered during this week (for best results we recommend Dry Cleaning) and their shirt is freshly washed and well ironed (starch on the creases is strongly advised). Boots and shoes must also be maintained to an exceptional standard, ensuring their shine, and cleanliness along the welts.
Arrival for Saturday morning will be in DPUs. You will have the opportunity to change before the parade. Lunch will also be provided prior to getting changed on Saturday morning.
Well done to you all for your efforts this year, particularly during our practices over the past 2 weeks. Please put in 110% effort this week so we can see out the year with a bang.
A reminder to all cadets that the Ceremonial Parade on 12 December, as well as the Parade Practice Day on 28 November are compulsory activities.
Cadets who are unable to attend either of these must submit separate leave forms no later than 13 November 2015.
This coming Thursday (29 Oct) during the normal parade night 305SQN will be visiting HMAS Waterhen to tour mine-hunter vessel HMAS Huon. In preparation for this activity all cadets are to ensure that they:
- Familiarise themselves with the JI, available for download on the i305 Download centre or to the right.
- Complete a PCF for this activity, available for download on the i305 website or on CadetOne, and bring it on Thursday night.
- Ensure that their uniform is up to standard, including clean/polished boots and ironed coats.
- Have a regulation haircut.
- Bring their Cadet ID cards to access the Navy base.
Failure to complete/address any of the above may mean that Cadets will be unable to participate in the tour.
Please direct any further questions to myself, email@example.com
