There are not many men who advance so rapidly in the service as Arthur Bearcroft, of Badsey, who since he joined the Army Service Corps on January 9 has had seven promotions. He was made sergeant on March 18, staff-sergeant on April 18, staff-quarter-master-sergeant on October 12, and first-class warrant officer on December 12. This is something like a record in promotion.
