    Its basically the school cadet corps from that very posh public school in Wimbledon. In terms of rarity, simply speaking, there weren't that many boys in the cadets compared to a real infantry regiment, for example. I like cadet/OTC stuff, but its not a huge collecting field.

    Did you get the reply I gave on your other 1888 Pattern?

    Yes i know exactly what you mean, the personal history is what it's all about. Out of interest, I looked it up and discovered that the KCS OTC actually still exists, although now it's called the King's College School CCF (Combined Cadet Force).
