George Harrison is believed to have forged all the signatures of the Beatles to make a dying fan’s wish come true.

The report emerged after an autographed picture of  the band was sold at Keys auctioneers in Aylsham, Norfolk on Friday.

It was donated by Harry Bartlett, of Rickinghall, Suffolk, whose daughter Ann received  the photograph shortly before her death in the late 1960s at the age of 16.

Andrew Bullock of Keys said it was thought Harrison had copied the signatures of his fellow band members – Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Lennon.

‘We’ve sent it to a handwriting expert and it’s just about 100 per cent certain that they were done by George,’ he said.

‘There are quite a few photographs in existence with autographs that were all signed by George. He got quite good at doing it.

‘In this case, where you have got this poor girl who is terminally ill, he was probably aware of the situation and thought he should get it sent off as soon as possible.

‘That adds a certain something and is actually quite nice.’

The lot, which also included a signed photograph of Harrison, sold for £1,300 to an anonymous telephone bidder.

Proceeds from the sale will go towards leukemia research at the University of East Anglia.

    Wow, what a wonderful story to read on a very blah Mun-day! 🙂 George is all heart. I don’t collect celebrity autographs, but if I had the cashola, I probably would have put a bid on that! It is a unique story, I suspect,. though it would not surprise me if he had done the same to some other unknown fans with severe personal conditions.

    Oh, my. How sweet.

    This is one of those moments when you can’t help but say “I love you, George” out loud to the air. Well, for me at least.
