This article should probably be renamed. Currently the capitalisation is irregular and does not comply with the WP:MOS. It is also a bit clumsy. One suggestion would be List of Australian Army Cadet units. (talk) 11:04, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Put it this way, if no one really gives a dam about the title then its fine. This is what shits me, people on wikipedia go out to seek problems instead of seeing the article itself. The title really doesnt have much say in the article itself, though it is important doesnt really tell much.Pattav2 (talk) 09:06, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

List of Australian Army Cadet Units would be better User:Will567 —Preceding undated comment added 16:25, 3 October 2009 (UTC).

Current Info[edit]

If anyone has current information on the status of units, or even units that have previously existed but have since closed, please add them, and then include a quick sentence as to the status of the unit (Did it amalgamate with another unit?, close completely? all those sorts of things.

What about my unit the 144 ACU in Atherton. Of the Far North Queensland Regiment? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:06, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Sure, but I highly doubt your unit is part of the Far North Queensland Regiment, due to FNQR not being a cadet formation and all that. Emcee george (talk) 10:20, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

The section on SBU's isnt correct, BHHSCU and JRAHSCU are School Based Units IAW the POLMAN, also all units are referred to as ACU's —Preceding unsigned comment added by Will567 (talkcontribs) 14:00, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Fixed the part about ACUs and changed it to 'Community Based Units'Emcee george (talk) 08:20, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Actually, BHHSCU, JRAHSCU and SHSCU are not really counted as SBUs (although they are based at a school) like schools such as Kings and Knox, but part of battalions, unlike other schools. Could you (Will567) please link me an extract of the POLMAN about the SBUs, i'm sceptical about these units being counted as SBUs. Vw987654321 (talk) 10:53, 8 September 2010 (UTC)User:Vw987654321

I do believe Will567 is right, in Victoria, the school based units are all in one battalion, just because a unit belongs to a battalion doesnt automatically make it a non school based unitEmcee george (talk) 07:30, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Vw987654321 read Annex F to Volume 1 Chapter 6, Can members of the General Public join those units? School Based Units are cadet Units that are sponsored by a school, that are closed to non students and that uses the schools name. In other Brigades e.g SQLD BDE and VIC BDE SBU's arent grouped together in specific Battalions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Will567 (talkcontribs) 16:04, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Western Australia : Wesley College used to have a school based unit into the 1980's - that was my unit. (talk) 07:51, 9 August 2017 (UTC)AJM
