SOMAT/BEagle - Support is gratefully received! I got a fair old savaging from TimeFlies on the 'Applying for the RAF' thread. He seemed to think that woeful English was not a problem and could be corrected much later in the system. Probably right but what a way to start!

I do think that the root of the problem lies with my generation who went to teacher training college and came out with a lot of very funny ideas about edukashun. It's the following generation that has suffered.

Unfortunately, while my comments here about the originator and subsequent contributors hold good, I can see a definite decline in education standards here, along the lines of the UK. Hopefully the military selection system here won't do what the RAF did and bow to the lowest common denominator.
