Barnes Wallis autograph / cheque

Code: P27638

SOLD

A personal cheque from Sir Barnes Wallis written on 15th July 1971 and made out to Mark Coleman for just 75 pence.  Apparently it was received by the previous owner's husband as part of a school scholarship award.  The Williams & Glyn's / Child & Co. bank cheque is printed 'Sir Barnes Wallis Private A/C' and is signed in black ink.  Sir Barnes Neville Wallis is of course famed for the design of the R.100 airship, the geodetic structure of the Wellington bomber and development of the bouncing bomb used by 617 'Dam Buster' Squadron to breach the Möhne and Eder dams in Germany.  He died in 1979.  An interesting and unique curiosity.  Stock code P27638.
