  Combined Cadet Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is a Ministry of Defence sponsored youth organisation in the United Kingdom.

The CCF was created on 1 April 1948 by the amalgamation of the Junior Training Corps (formerly the Junior Division of the Officers Training Corps) and the school contingents of the Sea Cadet Corps and Air Training Corps.
