    Default PNB Scheme

    My understanding is that recruits on the PNB Scheme had up to 12 hours flying to prove they could go solo as a pilot. Those who failed were remustered as navigators or bomb aimers.

    What body was in place at the Grading Schools to decide who was P, N or B? Was there a Board similar to the ACSB?. If so, what was it called?. If not, what formal procedure was in place to remuster the recruits?

    Any thoughts gratefully received.

    Regards

    Thanks for that; do you happen to know where the central ACCB was based?

    Also, I am trying to get to grips with "reserved occupations" (both mandatory and age restricted voluntary); are you planning to include anything on this subject in your thread?

    Got my own programme of topics to research through the offline sources.
