Cadet, or Midshipman in His Royal Navy and Acting pilot officer, is a rank in the Baustralian Armed Forces given to military cadets in training to become commissioned officers. They do not hold commissions, therefore not entitled to a salute, and are referred to as Mr./Mrs./Miss. Smith by Petty officers/sergeants and above, and Sir/Ma'am for other ranks.

Cadets in His Royal Navy wear a junior naval officer style cap badge, except the anchor is replaced with the tri-service emblem. They wear a gorget patch on the collars. Cadets in the Baustralian Army wear a generic BAF cap badge and wear a 1.5-inch white band. Similarly, cadets in His Royal Air Force wear a generic BAF cap badge, a white band on the forage cap, and a 6mm band on the sleeve. All forage cap peaks are plain.
