Cadet, St Peter’s College, 1937

South Australia

The College formed its first Cadet Corps in 1900, but only lasted two years.  The next Corps was raised in 1905 with Federal Government support.  After universal service the College again took responsibility for the Corps.

In 1936 the Cadets received a new uniform in khaki serge.  It consist of a felt hat with folded light khaki puggaree, with a dark blue fold second from top.  The College badge is worn on the turned up left brim.

The serge jacket has blue piping on the shoulder straps and pointed cuffs, and blue patches on the collar ends.  There is a small button on each patch.

This Cadet wears an old cadet belt to which is attached two ammunition pouches from the 1903 pattern equipment.

The plain serge trousers are worn with shoes or ankle boots.

He carries a SMLE rifle with bayonet.
