The Leonard Cheshire VC auction report.
A SR 21C617 E/9 was sold for £1559 including buyers premium, the latter kindly donated by SAS auctions at their ‘Trains Galore Sale’. on December 10th 2010
David Barzilay was able to locate ex 617 Squadron bomber pilot Lawrence Goodman who addressed the audience prior to the lot being auctioned. The locomotive was bought by a telephone bidder and all proceeds will be sent to the Charity.
Lawrence Goodman, now 90 recounted in a conversation before the sale that taking off with a full fuel load and a 22,000 lb bomb was very physical but he added ‘I was young then’. He also recalled having released the bomb his Lancaster rose dramatically in the air as if in relief. He also recounted having dropped a significant bomb on the pocket battleship ‘Tirpitz’.
He thought in his long life presenting a model locomotive named after a colleague was an unlikely event but in the actual event a very pleasurable one.
In producing this Battle of Britain Locomotive, ACE Trains have recognised the work of the most highly decorated pilot in the Second World War, Leonard Cheshire VC. In 1948 he set up Cheshire Homes and today the charity is known as Leonard Cheshire Disability serving over 20,000 people with disabilities in the UK as well as being active in 52 countries. For each loco sold ACE Trains have kindly donated £10. I would like to thank Allen Levy for this generous gesture.
