Joe Townshend's Log, 18 October 1944, p.1 (bottom)

This is the bottom half of the the first page of Joe Townshend's navigation log from the sortie in which his aircraft from No.540 Squadron discovered the Tirpitz off Tromso on 18 October 1941. This covers the signals sent during the mission, in this case largely attempts to produce a location fix for the aircraft.

Many thanks to Michael Townshend for sending us this picture. His father, Joe Townshend, was the navigator on this aircraft.
