"...was slow to get to a passable standard on all his IFTS flying. Eventually he just made the grade and passed into the AFTS. Here his work was poor and he did not show the keenness expected of ATA pilots and had to be warned about his slackness and his poor behaviour as an officer"
"Since this officer reported to this unit on the 5th June (1943) he has shown considerable improvement"
"He would do much better if he was not so lazy"
