Scope and Contents

Memorandum entitled "The Attitude of Members of the RAF Serving in South Africa" by John Colville stating how disappointed he was by the attitude of the RAF towards South Africa and the South Africans which he blames on ignorance, home sickness and boredom and suggesting that careful and intelligent preparation is given to all those drafted to South Africa. He adds that he has met a South African officer Captain Lennox Short, a former Information Officer, who is very keen to be consulted if any of these matters are considered and who is currently in England under the auspices of the Ministry of Information.
