    Like the entry for February 20th, "all rites observed". If you are unaware of what he means see this link:

    Frequently a certificate was issued to commemorate the crossing of the equator. A sample of one style is attached, there were many variations. The AAF Lucky Bastard certificates are of a similar concept although not so elaborate.
