Coronavirus update

On March 12, 2020, the World Health Organisation declared the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak as a pandemic.

It has caused global disruption, affecting countless organisations and businesses across the UK and beyond.

The Service Cadets have been impacted, with the Sea Cadets, Army Cadet Force (ACF) and RAF Air Cadets all tailoring their activities to ensure compliance with government restrictions.

In 2020, numerous HRFCA in-person events were cancelled or moved online. These included the Annual Association Meeting (online), the Royal Gun Salute at Stirling Castle (cancelled), and all Armed Forces Week, Armed Forces Day and Reserves Day events (cancelled).

With the ongoing fluid nature of the pandemic it is likely that further events and activities during 2021 will be impacted. We will update this page as and when we know of further developments.
