    Default Large Autograph Collection I just bought British American Canadian German

    On Sunday, one of my pickers held this aside for me, it is a large collection of Military Autographs.
    Canadian British American German and several Post War KGB members ect!!
    I have taken a few photos and this is the best I can do for now.

    To me it looks like he bought these from other people over the years and include some well known names

    Gavin
    Boyington
    Johnson
    Tibbets
    Frost
    Bradly Ect

    2 Are VC winners including a Dam Buster
    There are a few from one RRofC Member ( Coulson) captured at Dieppe who was sent to Muhlhausen, he also wrote the book, "Ticket to Hell"

    The one German autograph is Von der Heydte, Commander of the 6th Regt?

    One of the neat ones is of Rosenthal, who Filmed the Second raising of the American Flag at Iwo Jima

    Many have a lot of other info with them, some have the letters of request for the autographs, the earliest is Dated 1940

    There are many more I did not take photos of. Some of these I will keep, however many I will let go after I have really gone through them, as they are not in my area of collecting.

    These are the best photos I could take this morning

    The Frost Autograph is on the photo of the 2 Bridges, it is small and between the bridges, and kinda goes into the bridges, if you know what I mean

    HistoryMan, this is one of the few items with no other info, the photo of the bridges, is I think, a photo copy of a photo from a book, the autograph is not a photo copy, on the back is written Gen Frost Arnheim Bridge, and it is spelled like that

    You can "feel" the autograph if you run your finger along the back of the photo.
    Later I am going to check it against one I have that is 100% correct.
