Thirty years ago I saw the following quotation in the book The Eye of the Wind by Peter Scott. "Stories which I have been telling for years with great conviction, believing them to be true to the smallest detail, have proved after careful research among my papers to be greatly garbled. Such stories can be corrected, but what of the most of other reminiscences of which no contemporary record remains? Must I water them down in the sacred name of truth, or can the reader be trusted to apply the "Scott Reduction Index" — an arbitrary figure between twenty and fifty percent by which all lengths, breadths, weights, distances and vehement statements should automatically be reduced?"
This has been a guiding principle in the compilation of these four volumes, so that the reader can be sure that what is presented is factual and not the product of numerous "Sea Stories," but a text book to be relied on as to how the Navy and Marine Corps intended their aircraft to be painted. I trust you will find this to be so.
