As 2007 was our 20th year, we decided to open our ranks to the "Younger" members of our community by starting a Junior Cadet addition to our Unit. The age bracket for this new group is between 9 years and 11 years. They will be taught the same topics as our "Regular" Cadets in a simpler format and will be involved in all activities apart from any street parades. Once again, it will be a co-ed Unit, fully chaperoned. The Junior Cadets are issued with Australian Army camouflage (Auscam) trousers, Auscam shirt, bush hat, jumper and jacket free of charge.
The Legion of Frontiersmen was established in 1904 by a Captain Roger Pocock, who was an ex-Mounted Policeman in Canada and served in the Boer War in South Africa. On 15 February 1906, the Legion Council was granted official recognition by the British War Department. Recognition of the Legion by the Departments of Defence in Australia and New Zealand followed in 1907. An Australian member, Lieutenant William Dartnell, won a posthumous Victoria Cross whilst serving in the Legion’s own Battalion. He is remembered in the Hall of Valour at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
