Signed Beatles memorabilia kept by the air stewardess who helped deliver the Fab Four’s passports to them in Germany after they left them at home goes on sale for £35,000

A collection of signed Beatles memorabilia amassed by the Fab Four’s favourite air stewardess has emerged for sale for over £35,000.

Olga Fogwill, who worked at London Airport in the 1960s, met the band at the height of their fame as they were flying to Hamburg in Germany.

She came to their aid when John, Paul, George and Ringo, had all forgotten their passports.

But with air travel vastly different from today, she allowed them to board the British Eagle flight without the official documents.

Ms Fogwill then arranged for the passports to be sent to Germany on the next flight, allowing the band to take off as scheduled.

The group never forgot her help and kept in touch with both her and her family in the coming years.

They even provided her daughter, Susan Hall, with free tickets and signed collectibles, some of which have now emerged for sale.

The items, including a signed birthday card and an autographed ‘Help’ programme, are to go under the hammer tomorrow at SAS Auctions of Thatcham, Berkshire.
