In answering a question on another thread, Ross mentions that there did come a point where it was determined there were too many pilots in the training scheme for RAF purposes. Does anyone have more specifics on when this was decided and how it affected those already in training?

My father used to say this was the reason he was diverted into other training - a belief he held for 50 years until receiving his file from Ottawa and discovering he had been washed out. (His often-told story about bouncing a Cornell off the runway during landing from 60 feet instead of six should also have been a clue....)

He was only just 18 at the time, so I suppose his age might have been a factor too.
