The airman in question was admitted to hospital in March last for observation and treatment and for a report by a Royal Air Force medical specialist. The latter recommended that the airman should be recategorised to Grade III and remustered to a sedentary occupation. This recommendation was endorsed by a medical board on 13th March. The airman is at present employed on clerical duties in his present trade of station policeman pending remustering to a trade involving sedentary duties only.
