Letter from Joseph P. Walshe to John W. Dulanty (London)

DUBLIN, 12 September 1941

Dear John,

We got a letter from Belton dated the 12th August enclosing a leaflet setting out the requirements for candidates for aircrew duties.

The Air Ministry suggest that they should include in this leaflet a description of certain educational qualifications which would be required of boys educated here when becoming candidates for the Air Ministry University.

The matter is, as you can see, a political one, and you will have to fob them off doing anything which would of course give rise to very adverse comment here. They ought to be satisfied with the freedom we allow our young fellows to join the British Air Force without advertising the fact.

Yours sincerely,
[stamped] (SIGNED) J. P. WALSHE
