Walt’s Pilot Log 1943-44

Update 5 March: My winter slump is over and all the pages have been scanned and posted for the pilot log.

I’m scanning Walt’s Pilot Log book, as it shows his locations from March 1943-Novenber 1944, much of that time when there were no letters from him. Not only do we get to see where he traveled, but in what airplanes he trained, and then in the second half of 1944, we can see all his overseas locations and a list of some of the missions he flew.

Based on the information in the log, he is in Thomasville, GA in January 1944, so that the letter I have posted for that month should really be dated 1945. I’ll be moving that letter to where it belongs with an explanation.

There is too much information in the log for a blog post, so I have given it its own page and also linked it from The Letters page. I have only scanned and posted a few log entries so far, but the page is published so you can read it as it develops.
