1 K. JAMES, ROYAL AIR FORCE 1943 - 1945 ORIGINAL EXCEPTIONAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A BRITISH AIRMAN SEEING SERVICE THROUGHOUT THE MEDITERRANEAN FROM NORTH AFRICA TO ITALY
NORTH AFRICA, EGYPT, TUNISIA, BRITISH PALESTINE 1943 Fair+ 
On offer is a simply sensational, fascinating original World War II British RAF manuscript diary of an airman, named K. James Using a very interesting journal with portrait of an Egyptian pharaoh and North Africa maps as the endpapers. Our writer has inserted a block of papers used as a preface explaining the use of the diary he had charmingly dedicated to his parents. He also does a retrospective portion setting up the narrative. His signature ends the preface letter of explanation and then the actual entries begin dated May 14th 1943 through to winter of 1944 and then a final entry for February 23rd 1945. This airman has seen it all and been everywhere throughout the conflict in the Mediterranean and since the notebook is undated as diary goes his entries are long and very detailed. He begins with the end of the battle for Tunisia carries on with a most intimate, personal diary that besides the factual details of the War going on around him and his duties he never fails to provide colourful background of his mates, the natives, his thoughts, his loves, his boredom, his high and lows. In our experience this is a heads above the rest manuscript of the real life and times of this airman during his time throughout North Africa and Italy. The 6½ x 4½ inch book has a well filled 208 pages [of which 5 or 6 are pages with autographs] of his close personal narrative. The text block is somewhat loose but all pages appear accounted for. Overall G.
