FLAG ORDER 760
Any child who has passed his staff status II and AB or Engine Room checksheet and has a post which he is holding in the Sea Org amd who has a good ethics record is hereafter to be referred to not in a generality of "children" but as a CADET.
The word "children" is not to be used to describe these as it is a generality. If there are children about they are classified as children, but this does not include Cadets. Children are people who have not passed checksheets and have no paid post in the Sea Org.
The title CADET must be conferred by Flag Order Proof of qualification for the title must be given to the LRH Comm Staff.
A Cadet has a rank equal to a Deckhand or Motorman.
