Writing in navigator log

To this day, Alexander "Lew" Parry possesses all 31 original navigator logs from each of his missions  in 1945 during World War II. Each log shows in intricate detail the various readings, dates, times, number of planes, target, site to be attacked, type of bombs, altitude and flight time, along with remarks about the day’s events.
