The Secret Diary

I understand that the original copy of the secret diary of King Ludwig II of Bavaria got lost during World War II, when the Allies bombed the city of Munich. However, British historian Desmond Chapman had managed to access it before destruction (the wooden desk containing the book eventually got incinerated, before all the archives of the House of Wittelsbach could get removed to safety).
My question is: did he manage to translate the entire text, from German to English, prior to its destruction?
