In 1955 one of my Christmas presents was an autograph book. I immediately set out to fill it with as many Dan
Dare and Eagle related autographs as I could muster. As can be seen below, I managed to obtain many
signatures including those of Marcus Morris, Chad Varah, Alan Stranks (the scriptwriter), Sir Hubert Guest (who
was masquerading as my grandfather) together with various visiting film makers and crew, including the now
famous director Nicolas Roeg - and of course, most of the Dan Dare artists. Star prize here definitely went to
Eric Eden for his wonderful rocket.
