8vo. Original red cloth, gilt lettering to front; pp. 48; very good.
Log book filled in with previous owner's manuscript annotations. The log book runs from June 1942 - September 1945 and records the motor usage of D.S. Chichester of The Rough in Farnham. He was running an M.G. and the log book sees him covers great mileage over the southern counties of England on what was presumably educational work, as many of the entries are for visits to schools. Given the timeframe of the log and the nature of the schools Chichester was visiting, one can speculate that he was involved with cadet training, and that he had to keep a log of his motoring expenses (of which there were many - his MG appears to have been very unreliable) in order to claim for compensation.
