"A difficult man to assess - proved himself equal to one emergency and yet has made silly mistakes when everything was going right."

"A careful pilot of average ability. His progress has been marred by a long period of sickness."

"Slow generally and judgement rather poor, but improved later and by working hard showed great progress ... somewhat underconfident."
