“Button,” Espiritu Santo

Hid this diary and other another interesting, but classified material, under the lining of my green bag. Only by emptying it and testing the balance can one discern something wrong. Hid rolls of 35mm film in a tube of shaving cream. Turned down a staff job with ComAir South (Operations Officer). A good job, but all paperwork and no flying. Wanted the job of flag pilot with ComAirSoPac across the road, but no luck.
