    That is two remarkable and very poignant autograph books, have any of you chaps researched the RAF crew who signed and drew these? The british humour shines through in the drawings.

    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
