Air Cadet Training Morwell Advertiser, Thu 31 Aug. 1944 - page 4 http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/66130430 Cycled 1640 Miles in 14 Months. The record of A. T. C. Cadet, Sydney Colin Holt, of Yinnar South, Victoria was disclosed recently when he was accepted by the R. A. A. F. for enlistment in Aircrew. Living some 20 miles from the nearest Training Centre at Yallourn Holt was trained by correspondence So keen was the however that at least once a fortnight, he would cycle to his local A. T. C. Squadron Headquarters to get further help. The round trip of 40 miles taking four hours was completed at night after he had finished work on the farm, and he reckoned his total mileage in 14 months was over 1640 miles. Holt left school when he was 13 1/2 years old and although he held Merit Certificate, he had not tackled such subjects as Trigonometry or Algebra. He secured an A. T. C. Proficiency Certificate with an average of 78 per cent, securing 69 per cent for Trigonometry. Training by correspondence for Cadets in the Air Training Corps is provided for all youths, who through distance and other circumstances, are unable to attend a Squadron. The value of A. T. C. Training as a means of entry to the R. A. A. F. both in Ground Staff and Aircrew musterings is well known but it is also of great benefit to youths seeking advancement in post war years.
