View Full Version : WW2 logbooks and service diary of a fighter pilot

24th July 2020, 05:53
Good afternoon. I have a large PDF file that comprises a full (in colour) transcription of my father’s logbooks and service diary. The AWM has accepted the original manuscripts and described them as the most detailed transcriptions they have ever seen.
Frederick Leigh Bowes served with 253 and 76 squadrons as a flying officer and took command of 76 when Bluey Truscott died.
I’ve taken some liberties with the illustrations, knowing the old boy’s sense of humour .. and when he saw the draft copy before he died he told me it ‘opened a few hanger doors’

I’d like to make his records available, but am not not sure if this is the place, although I am sure you will enjoy reading them.
