1 A.C. PARKER 1944 + 1945 ORIGINAL PAIR [2] OF MANUSCRIPT DIARIES HANDWRITTEN BY A SERGEANT OF THE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE DESCRIBING HIS TRAINING AND THEN POSTING TO BRITISH COLUMBIA
FINGAL ONTARIO PATRICIA BAY PORT HARDY KELOWNA BC 1944 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a super, historical manuscript pair [2] of diaries handwritten by A.C. Parker #8 BR Squadron RCAF originally of Toronto. Parker does a super job detailing his service beginning January 1st, 1944 with being trained and educated in the art of aerial warfare putting in hours and hours of flight time and on gunnery firing many 100s of rounds near daily in practice at Fingal Ontario. Flying over Lake Erie is a freezing cold experience he notes without complaining. Prior to posting to British Columbia he manages a visit to family and friends in Toronto for dancing at the Granite Club a bit of a distance from his home on Royal York Road. There is also a dance at Women's College Hospital. In all 1944 is completely full describing daily his training and duties: rifle and revolver sighting, time in the turrets, flights, Morse Code training and tests, camera gun exercise, boxing with a PTI Sergeant, his trip to Vancouver, Port Hardy, Kelowna and much, much more. Historians and Researchers of the era will be hard pressed to find a more conscientious diarist recording his daily life as an RCAF Sergeant. 1945 is filled sporadically from Jan 1 to March and then a final entry noting VE Day on May 7th 1945. The 5½ x 3¼ inch official RCAF diaries are in very good condition with some general ageing save for the 1945 book that has a small puncture on the spine. Overall G+.
