Diary written by Leroy Sullivan detailing his travels in Africa and the Middle East as a pilot for the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II in 1942. He was stationed in Durban, South Africa where he stayed at the Clairwood Transient Camp on February 13, 1942. He then set sail for Cairo, Eygpt on February 17, 1942 where he was stationed for a few weeks before landing in Aden, Yemen on the first of March. After Aden, Sullivan returned to Cairo until June 18, 1842, Sullivan when he arrived in Khartoum, Sudan. On October 24, 1942, Sullivan boarded a ship to return to England, temporarily docking in Addis Ababa, Mombasa, and Madagascar along the way. Sullivan focuses his diary entries on his leisure time, rarely mentioning operations, presumably as a security measure.
