SUPER WORLD WAR II NORTH AFRICA ROYAL AIR FORCE HANDWRITTEN MEMOIR: "This is an exercise book" which it is stated in the first line of the first entry: 22/2/43 (9 pages); "I bought this book yesterday and am just taking a few spare moments to jot down some of the happenings and events of the last few months. This book is not intended to be a diary as such, as I have found that a day to day record of events becomes monotonous; but rather a medium that permits me to express myself on paper at thise inevitable times, in the service, when, due to ones surroundings and situation, there is nothing else to do. I shall also include such events as seem worthy of record and which I may like to preserve for the future in a clear cut form than memory alone provides. So I am now on the threshold of Operational Flying there should be much of interest and amusement which will be of interest and amusement." He then summarizes his Air Force Career and details what I assume is the "happenings of the last few months" as detailed at the beginning of this entry. This includes Scotland and Durban, South Africa and Egypt. The rest of the journal is concerned with life and training in Africa and finishes abruptly on 21st July 1943.
