The squadron Supply Department is responsible for managing the issue and exchange of the Air Cadet uniform and equipment. Cadets are issued their Distinctive Environmental Uniform (DEU) for ceremonial parades and inspections, and Field Training Uniform (FTU) for routine training and Field Training Exercises (FTX).
The Department of National Defense approves and issues on loan, the uniforms worn by Air Cadets. The care and custody of all items of clothing are your responsibility. You will be directed to go to Supply for a uniform fitting and issue at the appropriate time, although these may not be at the same time. DO NOT go to Supply unless directed to do so.
Check the Weekly Routine Orders for the correct Order of Dress, to ensure you wear the right uniform for the correct activities. Check the CJCR Dress Regulations if you are unclear on what the Order of Dress is: Orders of Dress - DEU
