The above actually was in pilot training, but “washed out”.......he was in the middle of being discharged from the RCAF, but became very ill (first with influenza). His entire illness record is available but I included the first page and the last page. He was discharged BUT was warned that moving him from the hospital may cause his death. His discharge papers are attached.......
