Signed memorabila under the hammer

This year’s gala dinner at the RAF Club in the presence of the Trust’s Patron, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, featured a silent auction of Battle of Britain memorabilia, much of it signed by members of the Few.

The event, to raise funds for the £2.8m Wing Appeal, took place on 18 October and also featured the Grand Draw. It is estimated to have raised around £40,000.

Items in the main auction included Wing Commander Bob Foster’s Irvin flying jacket, which sold for an impressive £17,500.
