COMPANY COMMANDERS REPORT [inserted] 94 [/inserted]
1st Month This Cadet works hard yet is easy going and does not realise the importance of discipline and command. Hard work and experience should give him the confidence that he requires.
4 Sep 43 [initialled]

2nd Month He is young and impetuous but has guts and determination although he has still a lot to learn in man management and discipline. He must be willing to accept all orders with a smile and then will be in a better position to command.
He has a fair tactical knowledge. 23 Sep 43.
