"A good pilot of sound average ability", but he was:
a) severely reprimanded and given 2 extra duties for 'Neglect of Duty' in Jun-43; "When detailed for night duty pilot and fire-watcher, he left the airfield on two occasions without permission" and
b) reprimanded in Feb-44 for taxiing a Proctor so carelesslythat the port wing hit a gate post.
He seems to have settled down later; his discipline was regarded as "satisfactory" by late 1944.
