George had two Logbooks spanning his flying career in the RAF which began on October 9, 1941 and ended on May 27, 1946.
Logbook 1: All RAF cadets destined for 5BFTS received a Logbook as they arrived in Canada which was provided by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). The first entry in this Logbook records his first flight in a Steaman PT-17 at 5BFTS on October 9, 1941, when he learnt how to use controls and how to fly straight and level. His last flight at 5BFTS was in a Harvard AT-6A on March 6, 1942, when he performed Forced Landings, Steep Turns and Aerobatics. The remainder of this Logbook covers his time at various training establishments until the end of October 1942, operational duties with 25 Squadron from November 1942 to December 1943 and then taking part in what were then secret Airborne Radar trials at RAF Defford from January 1944. The last entry in this Logbook is on June 29, 1944.
Hours flown at 5BFTS - 179 hours and 17 minutes. Total hours flown as recorded in Logbook 1 - 903 hours.
George’s Record of Service and Aircraft Flown are recorded on the inside back cover - these do include some Units and flights recorded in Logbook 2.
