    Just checked my list and whilst I could not put my hands on it as yet ( I have quite a number in various in folders ) I do have a first day cover with your Uncles signature on it .

    Yes but please do not hold your breath , I have a few and it will take a while to get to were the folders are and then locate it . My notes say it is a 44th anniversary cover of Operation Chastise flown in the BBMF Lanc PA474 on the 17th of May 1987 , postmarked Woodall Spa , a limited run of 200 signed by W/C P.J.J. Day . O/C No.617 Sqn 1987 .

    Whilst the strife ' tolerates ' the models , though she ruined ' RAF Dining Room ' when we got married by moving all the models out of the cabinets and filling them with Lladro and Crystal , she really likes the prints . A couple of pics .

    One looking down from the galliered landing ,



    Straight on ,



    Professionally framed with museum grade glass to stop the colours / sigs fading these can set you back a bit .

    The other one is John Youngs 60th Anniversary Malta print ,



    It reminds me of my father , he was a Desert Rat with the 7th Armoured Brigade , in trying to join his unit he got onto Malta and took several months to get back off again . Spending most of his time there running shells to a Bofors gun position . He managed to leave and find his tank eventually and then returned to the UK after being wounded in the Italian campaign in 1943 so missing the invasion of Europe . He always had great things to say bout the island and its people and he managed to visit in 2000 just before his death in 2001 . He located his old camp first attempt .

    So that is a little bit of info about my number one hobby .

    Apologies for the camera flash but its a screenshot after I won it on ebay , so not one of mine , shouting threats at my iPhone has not made the camera start working yet .
