He qualified as an AC2 Wireless Operator at No.2 Air Signals School, Yatesbury, Wiltshire in August 1941, and as an Airgunner at No.8 Air Gunnery School, Evanton, Scotland c. July 1942.

At the end of June, Macdonald was posted to the AGS at Evanton on Bothas and on the 30th August he went to No.5 (Coastal) OTU at Turnberry, Scotland on Ansons, Hampdens and Beauforts.

His qualification certificate is pasted into the log c.10th April 1945. The results show he was a slightly above average Wireless operator, but he has written in 'was first on course results!'.

The log is well written and has official certificates and stamps in addition to some glued in photos, philatelic stamps, newspaper clippings etc. A good Coastal/Transport Command log book worthy of additional research.
