Circa December 1942 as evidenced by the date of some notes, this approximately 15 pages, most written on both sides) of field notes from the hand of what appears to be a newly arrived and newly minted first lieutenant for the 82nd Airborne, A Company. This notebook details in Lt. Horton's own handwriting information the new officer requires; chain of command, operational structure, marching instructions, materials inventory, daily schedule etc. etc. There are also notes of a personal nature as Lt. Horton made lists to help remind him of duties and appointments. Here's a snippett: "REPORTING TO AN OFFICER FROM A HIGHER HQS: When any Ofcr such as a Major, or higher appears on any instructional area, Senior Officer NOT actually engaged in the work, double times up to him and halts etc., and salutes saying: "Sir, Lt. Horton, Co. A, 82nd BN reports", stand at attention and remain so as long as the Ofcr. stays. Notebook and pencil if indicated." In very good conditon overall.
