WW2 Navigators Sight Log Book, Canadian Mosquito S

Sight log book named to an navigator who flew Mosquitos for Canadian squadron W/418 during WW2. The book is in very nice condition, no pages missing and starts on the date 6.4.43. there are 8 pages filled ending on 3.6.43 , signed off by a F/Lt. Inside the log book i found a 1944 dated Evening Standard with a write up on two mosquitos from ADGB who managed to destroy some german JU87 aircraft the day before, the picture on the front includes Flying officer T.Rees, navigator of the plane that shot down two aircraft.
After a little search it would appear that less than a month after the write up in the paper the mosquito he was flying in was shot down by flak over Belgium after destroying more JU 87's on the ground, his Canadian pilot, F/Lt W.J.Harper was also lost. Rees was from Tregaron in Cardiganshire. This has never been in a collection before and im sure more research can be done.
