Nomination of Candidates from the Colonies to
Cadetships at the Royal Air Force College,
Cranwell, and for Royal Air Force Apprenticeships

A. Cadetships.

1. The conditions of admission to and residence
at the Royal Air Force College are given in Air
Ministry Pamphlet 296. It will be noted from this
that the candidate for a cadetship is normally
required :-
(a) to pass a written examinatioti conducted by
the Civil Service Commissioners
(b) to undergo tests of flying aptitude (in the
case of candidates for the General Duties
(flying branch) and selection tests lasting
about three days to assess personal qualities.
2. The small number of candidates to be recom-
mended for nomination would not justify making
arrangements for a written examination and this
will be dispensed with for candidates from the
Colonies, although they must have received
education to the standard indicated in paragraph
3 (f) below. The necessary facilities for the special
aptitude and selection tests on the scale employed
in this country are unlikely to exist in the Colonies,
and these will accordingly be eartied out in the
United Kingdom.
3. Candidates recommended by Governors for
nomination to the Air Council by the Secretary of
State for the Colonies must :-
(a) comply with the medical standards laid down
for admission to the Royal Air Force :
(b) be members of families established and
resident in the Colony concerned (such
cadetships are not intended for the sons of
parents whose connection with the Colony
is only temporary of official).
(c) be British subjects or British Protected
persons and unmarried. A candidate who
possesses foreign as well as British
nationality, or a candidate either of whose
parents is not (or was not at the time of his
or her death a British subject, may, in certain
cases be regarded as ineligible for entry :
(d) in the opinion of the Governor be suitable
in every respect to hold commissions in the
Royal Air Force :
(e) be within the age limits of 177 and 19 years
on the 1st January, of the year of entry into
cadet training (nominated candidates will
normally enter training at the College in the
term which commences towards the end of
April) :
(f) have reached a standard of general education
equal to that which is normally required for
admission to a degree course at a University
of a Commonwealth country, including a
knowledge of Mathematics to the standard
required in this subject in Matriculation
examinations.
(g) have a sound knowledge of the English
language such as will ensure that he has no
difficulty in understanding normally col-
loquial English and in using English as a
conversational medium.
4. Candidates to be recommended by Governors
must comply with the medical standards laid down
for appointment to permanent commissions and
they should be given a preliminary medical exami-


nation as near as possible to these standards as it is
practicable to arrange locally. Wherever possible
an X-Ray examination of the chest should be an
integral part of the medical examination and final
classification should be dependant on a satisfactory
result of the X-ray examination. Where a Royal
Air Force formation has its headquarters in the
Colony of residence, this preliminary medical
examination should be arranged and carried out at
Air Headquarters, in other cases it should be
carried Out by the Medical Establishment of the
Colonial Government. All candidates accepted
for rlomination will be re-examined medically on
arrival in the United Kingdom by a Central Royal
Ait Force Medical Board.
5. In the event that any recommended and
finally nominated candidate were found to be
unacceptable for the General duties (flying) branch
on account of lack of flying aptitude or inability
to satisfy the medical standard of that branch, he
would be considered for alternative cadet training
with a view to the grant of a permanent com-
mission in one of the ground branches, i.e., the
Equipment and Secretarial branches and the Royal
Air Force Regiment. This alternative should in
no sense be interpreted as implying that officer
material for the non-flying branches is recruited
mainly from "failures" for the General Duties
branch. The same high standard as regards
officer-like qualities is set in selecting for all branches
and opportunities of a career offered in the ground
branches compare favourably with those offered
in the General Duties branch ; rates of pay rank
for rank are the same for all branches and so arc
the rates of retired pay. A candidate may offer
himself for any or all of the branches to which the
cadet form of entry applies i.e.. the General Duties,
Equipment or Secretarial branches, or the Royal
Air Force Regiment. A candidate whose first choice
is for the General Duties branch can compete for a
permanent commission in one or all of the ground
branches which will enable him, if found medically
unfit for the General Duties branch or lacking the
necessary flying aptitude, to be considered for the
other branches ; and a candidate who does not
wish to be considered for the General Duties branch
may apply for one or more of the ground branches
in order of preference. It is suggested that this
alternative should be. explained to and accepted
by candidates before they are finally recommended,
although it would only be applied in the limited
circumstances described above.
6. The final acceptance of nominated candidates
will be subject to qualification in the selection tests
carried out in the United Kingdom dnd to con-
firmation by a Royal Air Force Medical Board of
medical fitness for Royal Air Force service.
7. In regard to the assurance required that a
recommended candidate is suitable in every respect
to hold a commission in the Royal Air Force
(paragraph 3 (d) above), the Governor's recom-
mendation should be made after consideration of
reports on the candidate from persons in authority
(excluding relatives) who know him intimately,
including a report from the Headmaster of his
school ; and the Air Council would wish the
Governor's final opinion to be given following a
reasonably searching interview with the candidate
during which particular reference should be paid
t6 the possession of satisfactory or potentially
satisfactory officer-like qualities, to the candidate's
capacity to take part in the corporate life of the


290












'Vi1L'N"il NT G9AZVTT'E, JULY 26", 1955.---(N. 4O 9_1


service including his ability to converse freely in
English. In cases where a Royal Air Force for-
mation has its headquarters in the Colony of
residence, the Governor's recommendation should
also be supported by a report based on an interview
by Air Headquarters.
8. The passage costs to this country of nominated
candidates will be borne as a charge against Air
Votes, but no candidate should be sent to this
country unless his parents or guardians have
previously accepted financial liability in writing
for his maintenance and return passage should he
fail to qualify in the selection tests or be found
medically unfit for Royal Air Force service by the
final Medical Board, or unless the Colonial Govern-
ment concerned has relieved the parent or guardian
of this liability. Any candidate granted a com-
mission after successful completion of cadet train-
ing who falls to serve for three years, except for
reasons outside his own control. would be required,
as a condition of permitting him to terminate his
service in the regular Air Force, to refund the cost
of his passage to the United Kingdomr and to meet
the cost of his return passage. It is assumed that
the Colonial Government concerned will assist
nominated candidates in obtaining passages so as
to reach the United Kingdom in time to commence
training with other candidates forming the same
term.
9. Subject to candidates of the required quality
being forthcoming, recommendations should be
forwarded to the Secretary of State for the Colonies
in time to reach him by the 1st January of each
year. The Secretary of State for the Colonies will
make nominations to the Air Council, not exceed-
ing six in number in any one year, in time to reach
the Air Ministry by 31st January of each year.
The Air Council reserve the right to reject any
particular nomination at their discretion.
10. Each recommendation submitted by Gover-
nors should be accompanied by the following
documents :-
(a) An application form completed by the candi-
date and his parent or guardian. (see
appendix to this memorandum). (If the
patent or guardian is unable to accept
financial liability for maintenance and
return passage costs and, therefore, to sign
the certificate which forms part of the
application form, a certificate from the
appropriate authority of the Clodnial
Governimetit should be forwarded if the
Colonial Goveriment is prepared to relieve
the parent or gitatdiafl of this liability).
{b) A certified copy of the entry of birth.
(c) Prelilr'inary medical report (Royal Air Force
Forms .827), accompanied by an X-ray
photograph of the chest.
(d) A report by the Governor supported where
appropriate by a report from Air Head-
quarters giving, ip particular, an opinion
ofi the candidate's pergsoal qualities and
knowledge of English in the sense of
paragraph 3(g) and 7 above. (ThiS report
should be accompanied by certified copies
of the reports from the candidate's referees
and Headmaster).
4e) A certificate by the eorm;petent authority
of the Colonial G, vetnmefit td tfiA effect
that they have vetified the candidate's claim
to have passed certain exaiiinations and
obtained the certifidaie dr certificates of the


appropriate examining board or faculty,
and that in their opinion he has reached a
standard of general education equal to that
which is normally required for admission
to a degree course at a University of a
Commonwealth country, including a
knowledge of Mathematics to the standard
required in th:s subject in Matriculation
examinations.
It is also essential, if the candidate is to have an
equal opportunity with candidates from the United
Kingdom of qualifying in the selection tests referred
to in paragraph 2 above, that he should have a
sound knowledge of the English language so that
he will have no difficulty in grasping the meaning of
instructions. the test of this, as judged by pier-
formarnce i.i the School Certificate Exnmninations
is .tot sufficient a candidate should have no
difficulty in understanding normal colloquial
English and in using English as a conversational
medium.
Sf. On arrival in the United Kingdom candidates
will be eligible for a free railway warrant from the
port of disembarkation to the appropriate R.A.F.
Station or from the place of temporary residence
iii the United Kingdom to the appropriate Royal
Air Force Staiidri should they first visit friends or
relatives on arrival. In cases where candidates
desire to travel direct to the Royal Air Force
Station from the port of diseinbarkation, particu-
lars as to the names of the candidates, name of the
ship, date of arrival etc.. should be notified as early
as possible, by telegram if necessary, to the
Colonial Office so that arrangements may be made
for them to be met. Candidates first visiting
friends or relatives must notify the Under-Secretary
of State, Air Ministry (A.R. 1.), Adastral House,
Kingsway, London, W.C. 2., in writing immediately
on their arrival in the United Kingdom giving the
address to which they are proceeding. Such
candidates should, when they report to the Royal
Air Force Station take with them any civilian
identity documents and insurance certificates with
which they may have been issued since their
disembarkation.

B.-Apprenticeships.

12. The conditions of entry and service of air-
craft and adininistrative apprentices are given in
Air Ministry Pamphlet 293.

as well as British nationality, or a candidate

exceptional cases between 15 and 171) for
air craft apprentices, or 16 and 17 (or in

that will enable them to profit by the course
of training :
(g) have a sound knowledge of the English
language such as will ensure that they have
no difficulty in understanding normal

14. As stated in Air Ministry Pamphlet 293 the
selection of aircraft and administrative apprentices
in this country provides for educational and
intelligence tests. Only those who reach at least
a qualifying standard in the educational and
intelligence tests are invited for interview. In
order, however, to reduce the possibility of rejection
to a minimum, it is considered that candidates
under this scheme should be examined on the
educational and intelligence tests in their own
country and sets of educational tests will be supplied
on request. The intelligence tests are for use for
successive entries in rotation.
15. The subjects of the examination for aircraft
apprentices together with the maximum marks
allotted to each subject are as follows :-


(a) Educational-
Mathematics
Science .
Essay .
English (Comprehension test)..

tices are 45 per cent, of the possible aggregate with
the proviso that at least 35 per cent must be
obtained in mathematics. In the General
Intelligence Test candidates must achieve a mini-
mum of 40 per cent.
Candidates for adminsitrative apprenticeships
should also be examined in the subjects listed at
(a) and (b) above but for them the Science paper
will be optional. These who take the Science
paper should be credited with marks they obtain
in it as a bonus. To qualify, candidates must
obtain not less than 50 per cent of the possible,
aggregate for all subjects (excluding Science) with
a proviso that at least 35 per cent must be obtained
in the Essay and the English comprehension test.
In the General Intelligence Test a minimum of
30 per cent is required.
16. The interview takes place at a selection
centre at which the candidates remain for one day.
The interview, which is supplemented by lectures
and advice by technical experts, is designed to
ensure -
,.(a) that only those candidates likely to be
successful in training are accepted :


(b) that those accepted are placed in the most
suitable trade in relation to :
(i) their own preference,
(ii) their suitability for training :
(;ii) the requirements of the Service.
Shortly after completion of this Selection Centre
procedure candidates report to their training
school for enlistment.
17. The medical standards are described in
Appendix A to Air Ministry Pamphlet 293 and a
preliminary medical examination as near as possible
to these standards should be carried out locally as
set out in paragraph 4 of this memorandum.
18. The final acceptance of nominated candidates
will be subject to the interview carried out in the
United Kingdom and to confirmation by a Royal
Air Force Medical Board of medical fitness for
service with the Royal Air Force. Any candidates
who are not considered suitable for apprentice-
ships at this stage may, if suitable and willing, be
offered enlistment as boy entrants under the scheme
also set out in Air Ministry Pamnphet 293 as an
alternative to rejection.
19. In regard to the assurance required in
paragraph 13(d) the Governor's recommendation
should be made after action on the lines of para-
graph 7 above has been carried out.
20. The passages of candidates for apprentice-
ships will be under the same conditions as those for
cadetships set out in paragraph 8 above.
21. Subject to candidates of the required quality
being forthcoming, recommendations should be
forwarded to the Secretary of State for the
Colonies in time to reach him by the 1st January,
of each year. The Secretary of State for the
Colonies will make nominations to the Air Council
not exceeding six from the African Colonies and
six from other Colonies in any one year, in time to
reach the Air Ministry by the 31st January each
year. The Air Council reserve the right to reject
any particular nomination at their discretion.
22. Each recommendation submitted by
Governors should be accompanied by the follow-
ing documents :-
(a) Nomination form 699 completed by parent
or guardian and form 901 (choice of trade).

(f) Form 76A (parents consent).
(g) In case it should be necessary to offer a
candidate entry in a capacity other than that

an aircraft apprenticeship proves suitable
only for enlistment as a boy entrant, a
certificate must also be forwarded signed
by the parent or guardian to the effect that
the latter is willing that the candidate should
accept such an alternative offer, if himself
willing. The parent or guardian, or the
appropriate authority of the Colonial
