G. LEONARD CHESHIRE
Signed First Day Cover honoring Glenn Curtiss
First Day Cover signed: "Cheshire", 6½x3½. FDC honoring aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss, postmarked Hammondsport, N.Y., December 30, 1980, 35-cent stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Geoffrey Leonard Cheshire (1917-1992) was a Wing Commander in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, flying 100 missions between 1940-1944. First flying with the 102 Squadron, he also flew with the 76 Squadron before taking command of the 617th Squadron, becoming the youngest (25 years old) group Captain in the RAF. Cheshire, who was awarded the Victoria Cross in 1944, was the official British observer when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Later devoting himself to world peace, Cheshire was created Baron Cheshire of Woodhall in 1991. (After that date, "Cheshire" denoted his title, not just his last name.) Fine condition.
