Flight Logs & Diaries - October 1944 to January 1945

So here we are at the end of the flight logs and diaries for Mom and Dad's war. I will be inserting some other photos as I find them over the next while but the this project is almost finished. It has been a long journey. I found out some very interesting things about my Mom and Dad's lives from 1938 through 1945. There are still some gaps and questions but they may have to wait for a while as I digest it all.

As I said at the beginning of this blog, this project would not have happened without the material in my possession now plus material that has come to me from siblings and relatives and great friends along the way.

I remember back in the 90s transcribing the logs and the diaries. I had just retired from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and this was a good way to unwind. I gave copies of that document to siblings and cousins at a family reunion.

Then there was a gap of over 10 years. When my cousins John and David got fired up over those documents and I had acquired a scanner, the project took on a new life. And if you go back to the beginning of this blog, you'll see how it all unfolded.

There are still some entries in Dad's second log book which were made in dribs and drabs into the 1950s. After I do some work on this past part, I will enter them here as well.

I will save some final words for the very end. But it's been a trip!
