Gordon Griffith (1914-2000) enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in May of 1942. He served as the navigator of a bomber crew which formed in early 1944 and was attached to the 76th Squadron of the Royal Air Force. Their base was an airfield located near the village of Holme-on-Spaudling in Yorkshire, England. Their first aircraft was a Halifax III, which survived 60 missions. Griffith was dischared in October of 1945 and spent his final years in Lincoln, Ontario.

The archive of Gordon Griffith consists of approximately 50 charts that were used on his bombing missions. They range from standard aeronautical charts to those developed for the new technologies of radar and lattice plotting.
