    It is a curious fact of the air services that rather than officers sending troops to fight, the troops send their officers

    I had never thought of this but Lex is absolutely correct. Airmen send captains and Lieutenants off to war

    During WW2 the attrition was so high among pilots that the joke among the services was rapid advancement in rank – wasn’t unusual to see majors – and even colonels – still in their 20s.
