The recent decision to suspend transfers to the Royal Air Force for air crew duties was taken in the interests of the Service. I greatly regret the disappointment caused to those whose transfers have not been completed. There is no reason, however, why they should have lost promotion in the Army, and I am sure that the great majority recognise that such transfers are not suspended without very strong cause.
