Laurence Maurice "Buck" Clark,
Royal Canadian Air Force
RCAF Pilot's Flying Log Books were not actually kept by the
pilot himself. They were kept by a squadron clerk who made daily entries based
on paperwork submitted by the pilot. The pilot himself signed his log book
certifying accuracy and the squadron clerk then passed the logs on for review
and sign off by the squadron commander.
The following pages
are Buck's log of flying for the Royal Canadian Air Force starting with the
front cover, inside front pages, log pages, and inside back cover. The log
entries span a double page width. Unfortunately, my scanning equipment would not
quite capture the entire double page in one scan. Three columns at the right
most edge of the form were cut off. They are headed "Instr/Cloud Flying", "Dual"
and "Pilot", and "Link Trainer." The columns record the cumulative total time in
each category. I have chosen not to go to the trouble of scanning the part
missed and editing it onto these pages. Besides the flying log pages there were
also some pages that were "paste ins" often half size pages printed or typed.
These were reproduced as well.
