Here is a sampling of some of the navigation charts that are paper clipped together.

 

I don't want to pull them apart.

 

They are all Philippines related.

The entire set is amazing, but I really dig those target lists! That is really really cool....something very different! Thanks for sharing.

In years of collecting i have never found this type of paperwork from an aviator.

 

It gives you a glimpse into how these spotters operated.

 

For me it was a never seen before glimpse.

 

Here are the flip charts to ID Japanese war ships

BB, CV, CVS and CVE's.

 

I think that Hanlin cannibalized an ID book to make these recognition charts.
