If you were ever a cadet in Suffolk you may spot yourself in our pictures.
There are cadet groups across the whole of the region with many young people taking part.
Cadets are normally a junior trainee who enjoys training, learning new skills and taking part in a variety of activities and events, under the guidance of organisations affiliated to the army, air force, navy or police - sometimes going on to careers with those bodies.
Her Majesty The Queen received a guard of honour from Ipswich cadets when she visited the town in 1977 for her Silver Jubilee.
