'Towing' Fee Is Asked by Grumman
OK, now the invoice is much harder to read on my photocopy. The invoice, for anyone who cares to check records, is A441066.
The top block looks like who the invoice is made out to. Three companies are listed:
First, there's some sort of serial number, then an item that says VIA is answered "IX-7, USS Iwo Jima, OCVAIR". Then a question is responded to by "None" and another on the same line "Never Again".
