The Cadets beret is the same shade of blue as the RAF but has its own distinctive cap badge, and is worn with all our variations of uniform.
It is worn so the cap badge sits 1 inch over the left eye with the excess material pulled to the right over the right ear, in such a way that the black band sits horizontal around the head.
Hair and Accessories
If the hair is dyed or highlighted, the colour chosen is to be natural and in a uniform shade appropriate to the individual. Extreme styles of haircuts and colouring are not permitted.
All male hair is to be well cut and trimmed, with sideburns not extending below the midpoint of your ear; you will be expected clean-shaven when in uniform, with beards being permitted only on religious grounds. A watch of inconspicuous style may also be worn.
