Hi my name is Ivan, and I am the owner of Ivan's Autograph Collecting Co. In 1964 as a member of the RCAF I started to collect autographs. The autographs that I am putting up for sale is in a June 1992 Reader’s Digest and the Special Feature is on page 205 titled The 14th Mission. The night of June 12 1944 a Canadian Lancaster with a crew 6 Canadians and 1 British Airman took off to bomb Germany Was shot down and all survived except the Mid-Upper Gunner W/O Mynarskie who was killed, and received the highest Medal for bravery in the British Empire the Victoria Cross. In my AD are 8 different articles from the magazine: #1 cover of the Readers Digest, #2 the photo autographed by all members of the crew, #3 Pat Brophy autographed page, 206 #4 Crew autographed the colour photo of the reunion page 223, #5 T/W letter From the pilot Art de Breyne, #6 Pat Brophy sent back my H/W letter answered my question his greatest achievement Living Pat #7A H/W from Roy Vigars the Flight Engineer, #8 2 H/W letters from Bob Bodie the Navigator. I have letters from all the crew, and also an autographed colour photo, and a H/W letter from the sister W/O Mynarskie who was awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery. The only reason there are only 8 pictures displayed that is the amount that KIJIJI will allow. I believe I am the only one on Planet Earth or the Universe that has this Reader’s Digest autographed as I received all the addresses from the Pilot. I sent for my first autograph April 1985, and received the last one May 1989 I thank all of you for viewing my AD and have a wonderful day. Ivan owner Ivan’s Autograph Collecting Co.
