Chas Cormack wrote:  From memory,  the two ex Air Gunners failed the course. The final trim was a Britannia with a door loading chart.  I gave John Guy, the examiner, problems with his marking key.  He did not allow for a supposed crate which was quite light and fitted through the door if turned on its side. I don't think he ever forgave me for selecting it and proving it would go on!
