to 3-3, and in the marines from 14-3 to 2-8.(1) But even if we take the period from Iqlz the number so promoted has been very small, and for such an officer to reach the rank of captain is almost, and beyond that rank entirely, unknown.(2)
The remaining 97 per cent of officers are recruited in two ways-about two-thirds from Dartmouth and one-third from the public schools. The Dartmouth course takes four years. It begins at the age of thirteen and a half, which means that the parent and not the boy chooses the career. It costs, according to an approximate Admiralty estimate, £788, the fees being reduced by a third for the sons of officers. The field is restricted, that is to say, to officers' sons and to those who can afford to spend nearly 200 pounds a year for four years, and subsequently-since pay for some time barely covers expenses-to contribute further financial help. There is, moreover, a penalty payment for withdrawal before the age of twenty-one of a maximum of £40 for every term spent at Dartmouth. The second method, entry from the public schools, is at seventeen and eighteen by examination and interview. It is followed by eight months' training. Again, recruitment is limited to those whose parents have been able to afford an expensive education and who can pay the additional £180 in the two following years, which the Admiralty reckon to be the approximate cost. The section of society therefore from which both types of entrant are recruited is the same. Incidentally it is curious to notice that a training of eight months in the latter case should be equivalent to the specialist side of the four years' training in the former.
Air force recruitment to permanent commissions is through the R.A.F. College of Cranwell, the system having been
