For interest:

Adult trainees of the period, take T E Lawrence for example at the RAF Training Depot at Uxbridge in 1922, complete with jodhpurs and swagger stick:

You are of course entitled to your opinion.

The fact that the family concerned had a member who joined the RAF "as a boy" in the 30s is mightily persuasive and, as an adult entrant, Lawrence has no white disc behind his cap badge.
