At the risk of spamming (which isn't my intention), I wanted to let everyone know that the estate of the late Richard Todd (star of The Dam Busters) is being auctioned over the next few weeks on eBay by Vintage V. These items should go to a collector or museum, which is why I wanted to let your members know. We run a shop in Peterborough dedicated to selling wartime collectibles and the collection has been passed over to us to find a good home.
Items will include personal effects, clothing, an original oil painting and a signed letter to Richard from Barnes Wallis.
The first two items are listed here -
From the Richard Todd Estate - photo and engraved pen on eBay (end time 09-Mar-11 13:56:30 GMT)
From the Richard Todd Estate - Scrapbook on eBay (end time 09-Mar-11 14:03:13 GMT)
