Introduction

This website is the transcript from my Grandfather’s diary which he kept during his flying training and service as a pilot during ¬†World War 1.

I have also carried out a small amount of research into the individuals he mentions in the diary. This research can be found in the About Wallace section.

“This book is not intended to be a log of all my flights, it is simply my impressions of flying, and life as a flying officer from the time he joins his training squadron until he becomes a flying officer. My present intention is to fill up this book as the mood strikes me”
