Re-interviewed: This man is very keen to get into action, and has shown a preference for the Tank Corps. Due to a high rate of intelligence, should be quite capable of taking training as a Dr. Operator in that unit. Recommend transfer tot that unit when it can be arranged. Suitable for trade training also as a Motor Mech. R.R. Robertson, Lieutenant.
