The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Could you provide the formation date of each Army Cadet Force (ACF) County/battalion? I'm aware many of the cadet detachments might be able to trace their origins to before 1908, but I'm only looking for each county/battalion's formation date at the strength of a battalion within the ACF. I'm therefore requesting the following:
1) Formation date of each Army Cadet Force County/Battalion
2) List of the current Army Cadet Force Counties/Battalions by region/command (ie: Headqurters North East/Headquarters South West)
3) Disbanded ACF Counties/Battalions since 1949
4) Affiliated (overall) regiment/corps for each county/battalion (if applicable)

Yours faithfully,

Justin Zacchi

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I'm sending a quick followup on my request regarding ACF counties/battalions formation dates. I've done some FOI(A)s before and have indeed done independent research on counties and their history, but haven't found anywhere that has the formation dates listed and any former counties.

Yours faithfully,

Justin Zacchi
