1902: German, Drawing. A very clever officer & particularly good in cyphering & decyphering code. Liable to fits of depression when at sea.
1908: A very hard working officer, painstaking & very reliable, he is accurate in his work to a very marked degree & a very highly finished draughtsman, & as he combines brains with the latter accomplishment, he is a valuable officer in a department where frequently points can be made clear by diagrammatic treatment.
