Celebrating 110 years

As the first school in Ireland to form a Contingent of the Officer Training Corps (O.T.C.) in September 1909, Campbell has had a long and proud history of military training, and 2019 marks 110 years of service. To mark this occassion, a 2 inch commemorative coin has been designed and commissioned by a current C.C.F. Officer to celebrate the event. A number of these coins are being offered to the wider C.C.F. community for purchase.

On the front of this limited edition metal coin is a boars head set above a background of green gloss enamel. Not only is this representative of the Campbell community, but the boars head was the cap badge of the Campbell College C.C.F. when first raised in 1948. The front is emblazened with the full Contingent title CAMPBELL COLLEGE COMBINED CADET FORCE and dates 1909 - 2019.

 

On the rear of the coin is a scene representing all elements of the current Combined Cadet Force set against a vibrant Union Flag;

  1. a saluting cadet wearing the hackled headdress of the Royal Irish Regiment of the army section,
  2. a marching piper from the Campbell College pipe band,
  3. a Grob tutor training aircraft representing the Royal Air Force section,
  4. finally the bow of HMS Bristol breaks into the scene representing the training ship of the Royal Navy section.

The College motto of NE OBLIVISCARIS is set on the black gloss enamel of the border, flanked by O.T.C. and C.C.F. all under a proud 110 YEARS.

 

Manufactured in the U.K. by an ex-serviceman, the coins are now available for purchase and are shipping. They will also be available at Summer Camp this year for current cadets to purchase.

Coins can be purchased for £10.00 each
