I've recently had access to a relation's WWII Flying log books, which start with his training on Tiger Moths in Sept '41 when he would have been 18. He appears to have completed 'link training' (what was this?) at the end of October before moving on to Harvards, running through to January '42. This was followed by further training on Harvards, Masters, Tomahawks, and Mustangs, completing in August (part of this time being spent in Ontario, Canada), effectively a year after joining - was this period of time usual (he is credited in the book stamps as 'average/above average')? After transferring to 16 Sqdn in Feb '43, where he seems to initially be allocated Mustang AG606, the log book has very little detail despite dates being consecutive,these sometimes being flights between different aerodromes each day (e.g. Western Zoyland to Andover), or comments such as 'air test', 'cine gun ranging', or, 'air to air firing' this latter note being followed by a percentage such as 0.75%, and a time of 0.3hrs (30 mins I assume?). Was this enemy action, and why fly between different aerodromes? Training seems to recommence again in July'43 on Tiger Moths and Proctors, plus 'experience on Spitfire'. Book is then blank until late Dec-Feb, with further Tiger Moth, Proctor, and Auster flying, ceasing in Mar '43. Comments anyone? Can someone advise the interpretation of the duty defined as 'TAC/R'. Thanks in advance.
