...To me at least. With regard to the mathematical requirements, I certainly would not have met them!
Upon this video, the unfortunate perception of the British officer of the pre WW1 period seems to have continued into relatively modern times.
I must remark that most armies relied on the more educated elements of society for their officer corps; in 1943, my father being a Yale University undergraduate at the time, was of course immediately transformed into a "90 day wonder" as a an AAC combat intelligence officer.
All other matters aside, there are some very interesting photos to be seen in this presentation, particularly the early OSD uniforms in wear. The presenter wearing and OSD uniform to the "Dukes".
