Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

Battle of Britain - Wonderful signed Print for Auction

Date: 15th July 2021

My regular followers will know that I have a soft spot for the Battle of Britain Memorial and all that goes with it.

Discovered the other day that Chaucer Collectables are having an Auction on 21st July with many Prints from that period. One which I’ve seen and which I think is stunning and unique is a Print of a Spitfire and Hurricane with 150 Authentic signatures of Pilots and Air Crew who took part in that historic Battle of Britain from 10th July 1040 - October 31st 1940

I suppose it means a lot to me because I had the honour of meeting and counting as my friends many of the Veterans - sadly now all dead and gone.

I’m not an Auctioneer but am surprised at what I see as the relatively low reserve of £700. I’m sure the price will rise.

Chaucer Collectables have told me they will donate 50% of the Buyer’s Premium to a Charity of my choice and I will name Miracle Missions. It won’t be a huge amount but they are desperate to fund the fencing for their centre which will Assess, Treat and where appropriate fit Disabled Animals with Wheels and Prosthetics. The cost of the fencing is eye watering - £66,000.

If you are interested in the Auction on 21st July. Go to
https://chaucer.atgportals.net/auctions/7875/srchau10366 

Not a brilliant photo but it will give you some idea.  It is the signatures which interest me including that of Bomber Harris.

I'm tempted to bid myself but having posted this information on Twitter and my Website I've probably shot myself in the foot!  But I want the Lot to fetch the best price possible which means more for Miracles Mission.

When I sang the praises on 'Cash in the Attic'  of my Adult Eduction Silversmithing and Jewellery Making Teacher - I couldn't sign up for the next session as the course was fully booked.
