    Hi all,

    Just thought I would share this book that I own with you. Was lucky enough to be given it by my parents who picked it up for me from a charity shop. The Avro Lancaster by Francis Mason signed by:

    Wing Commander K. H. P. Beauchamp DSO DFC
    Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC OM DSO
    Group Captain C. C. Calder DSO DFC
    Flying Officer R. Grantham- Hill DFC
    Warrant Officer Norman C. Jackson VC
    Wing Commander R. A. B. Learoyd VC
    Flight Lieutenant William Reid VC Bsc (Agrie)
    Squadron Leader D. J. Shannon DSO DFC
    Group Captain J. B. Tait DSO DFC ADC
    Flight Leuitenant W. Townsend CGM DFM MA
    Francis Mason

    I think its great to have all these signatures in one place. Unfortunately it means that I don't look at the book very much for fear of damaging it in some way.

    Very nice James , some very famous Bomber Command signatures there !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
