    The map is linen backed, typical for use in the air. He flew a couple of missions mainly protection over flights. My one and only combat log book.

    WOW! I am not sure which of your posts I have enjoyed more! However, since I am kind of partial to observers, I think I will choose this one. Does his log indicate which pilot that he flew with?

    Wonderful grouping, Paul! Love the flight log book, love the studio portrait & the map is just as interesting.
    Now, in regards to those snap shots, what's that I see on the fuselage? Is it a cockade or a squadron insignia?
    I see you posted quite a few things. Ooo boy...I'm gonna have some fun to-day!

    Hey Paul, Have you tried Gorrel's? I was able to find out who my pilot's observers were from it.
