A poignant autograph book containing the signatures of over 230 Bomber Command heroes has emerged for sale for £10,000.<br />
<br />
They were collected by nine year old Suffolk schoolboy Raymond Spalding who idolised the fearless World War Two aircrew.<br />
<br />
He visited his local RAF bases at Mildenhall and Lakenheath on numerous occasions between March 1941 and November 1942.<br />
<br />
Tragically, the casualty rate was so high that 89 of the signees were killed in action during the conflict, with over a dozen others taken as PoWs.
