A letter from the nephew of Formby confirming that the Dallas 'E' (gold plated) banjolele was owned by George Formby until his detah in 1961.<br />
<br />
A banjo which was owned by both George Harrison and George Formby has emerged for sale for £80,000.<br />
<br />
The legendary Beatle acquired the banjolele in the late 1960s which had been specially hand-made for the famous entertainer George Formby in the 1930s.<br />
<br />
Formby was one of Britain's most popular performers in the 1930s and 1940s and his trademark was to sing comical songs while playing the banjolele.
