Bomber pilot's log
This book Vera, dear, is written for you. In it I have recorded a host of trivial incidents which to any but a very understanding wife would appear pointless and probably dull. Perhaps some pages are exceedingly poor stuff, but I know that you will understand where others would be bored. Should others read this little effort, I earnestly pray that they will not skip the introduction as in it, here and now I make my apologies to them. But read on dearest of the gap of so many months, the duration of my enforced desertion from the only girl in the world. God bless her.
