An incredibly poignant poem left by a grieving mother in her war hero son's flying log book has been uncovered to reveal the devastation his death had on her.<br />
<br />
Sarah Burns was so heartbroken at the loss of son Stephen - who flew on the famous Dambusters Raid - that she slept with his spare RAF uniform for solace.<br />
<br />
She also penned a touching poem in his logbook alongside the signatures of RAF legends Guy Gibson and Sir Leonard Cheshire. The items are now being sold by Dix Noonan Webb.
