George Vi, (CNN) – There were always three images of King George VI”sur the chimney of the various houses Mark Logue lived when he was growing up – including a signed and dated by the king on his coronation day – - but as a boy in the 1970 and 1980, Logue can not remember to ask why.

Only years later, after his father died and Logue inherited a box of papers and scrapbooks, he started to make sense.

Grandfather was Lionel Logue Logue, the Australian pathologist played by Geoffrey Rush in the Oscar-nominated film “The King’s Speech.”

Mark Logue – born 12 years after his grandfather died – had inherited an archive: Christmas cards of the king and queen, a card of condolence “George VI”à Lionel Logue when his wife died, and a letter of thanks from the queen, Logue wrote a letter which the king himself died a few years later.

The documents also include hundreds of letters exchanged by the king and the speech therapist; he has met more than a decade before he was crowned.

“The contents of the letters between them is incredibly friendly as you’d expect between two friends,” said Mark Logue. “But there is a sort of label that remains Lionel,” meet “George VI”comme” Your Royal Highness. ”

“George VI”adressée to his friend as” Dear Logue, “and the first letters signed” Albert “- his name before he was crowned king. The later letters are signed” George “.

Also among the papers of his grandfather is what Mark Logue believes is the actual copy of George’s speech “VI’’Lu at the beginning of the war with Germany 1939 – the climactic scene of the film.
