The signature of Air Commodore John Mitchell, LVO, DFC, AFC (deceased)

Air Commodore John Mitchell, LVO, DFC, AFC (deceased)
*Signature Value : £25

John Mitchell had a remarkable career. An RAFVR officer, he was mobilised on the outbreak of war and just missed going to join a Fairey Battle Squadron in France where he would have undoubtedly been killed. He was instead posted to 58 Squadron flying Whitleys, surviving a tour of operations in 1940/41 including ditching in the North Sea. Awarded the DFC, he was sent to the US, helping to develop the first navigation training simulators with the famous Link Trainer factory. He was later awarded the US Legion of Merit, signed by Harry Truman. Returning to the UK in 1942, he was selected to join the crew of Winston Churchill's personal aircraft, the famous Avro York – Ascalon. For two years he navigated 'The Owner' – as he was known – around the world from North Africa to Italy, the Middle East to Moscow, including to the famous Teheran and Yalta conferences. He flew 'General Lyon' (aka HM George VI) on several occasions (for which he was personally decorated), as well as some of the great military leaders of their time from Alexander to Alanbrooke, Smuts to de Gaulle. After the war he continued to enjoy an eventful career. He was Senior Navigation Instructor at the RAF College, Cranwell and then held a similar post at RAF Manby where he undertook long-range exercises over the North Geographic Pole in the converted Lincoln, Aries III. He later returned to Air Attaché duties and was appointed to Moscow during the Brezhnev regime, finishing his career in the Air Intelligence world of the MoD. John Mitchell died 5th February 2016.

The signature of Flight Lieutenant Hedley Molland

Flight Lieutenant Hedley Molland
*Signature Value : £20

Flying Officer Hedley Molland. During air combat training Flying Officer Hedley Molland while Flying a Hunter made a cine attack on his target and followed it into a dive from 37,000 feet. At 31,000 feet the dive steepened uncontrollably, the aircraft diving vertically into the sea 7 miles east of Brawdsey, Suffolk. Flying Officer Hedley Molland survived the supersonic ejection at 25,000 feet, mach 1.1 - his left arm was broken on ejection as he only used his left hand to initiate ejection. He also suffered two black eyes and a fractured pelvis. His crash helmet, watch, gloves and one shoe were blown off during ejection. The parachute opened automatically at about 10,000ft and speed of descent was normal. Molland was unable, because of his injuries, to inflate his dinghy in the water. He is thought to be the second man ever to have baled out successfully at such a speed - the first was an American. Molland was rescued. The accident was finally attributed to the probable effects of using flaps at high speeds as an aid to combat manoeuverability. While with 111 Sqd RAF Flt. Lt. Hedley Molland also ejected from a Lightning over Battisford Hill, near Wattisham on the 29th September 1965.
