    Some cool signatures and interesting titles, Dwight. I enjoyed The Frustrated Raider very much. Ordinary Men looks like a good read.

    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

    Thanks, Paul - I have many signed aviation books ( pilots and aircrew seem to sign everything in sight ! ). But good, signed books from veterans of land warfare seem much less plentiful.....

    1916 copy of the retreat from Mons which is signed by Earl Haig of Bemersyde , the son of Field Marshall Earl Haig.

    My Grandfather fought in 35 Heavy Battery RGA at Mons as part of Haigs 1 Corps and his son Dawick Haig kindly signed the book on behalf of his Father whist i was at Bemersyde assisting with the filming of a TV Documentary for the 90th Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.

    Dawick Haig was an Officer in the Royal Scots Greys until he was captured in the Western Desert in 1942 , he was then taken to Colditz due to who he was and remained there as a prisoner for the remainder of the war.

    OK - last one.....it's aviation, but with a difference.

    Richard Hillary's 'The Last Enemy' was one of the first memoirs of the Battle of Britain and is today regarded as a literary classic which has never been out of print. Baling out in flames from his Spitfire, he faced a long struggle to overcome his burns as one of the first plastic surgery 'guinea pigs'.

    This is a part-leather bound, first-edition presentation copy which I found in the 1980s in the basement of a London bookshop.





    I did some research on this - 'Rosie' was a woman called Rosie Carr whose face was destroyed in a car accident and who befriended Hillary in the same hospital. She died in London in the 1980s and I guess the book must have come from her effects.

    Richard Hillary was killed on 7 January 1943 - unwisely trying to return to operational flying.

    For me, this is a unique piece of Battle of Britain memorabilia.

    ( I paid 3 for it...................)
