The side arm holster on my belt did actually belong to Bill, and this was confirmed by him when he asked 2 friends to visit jeep's grave in May 2005. A photograph was taken of the word CRUMP embossed on the rear of the holster.

Take any RAF Station of yesteryear and I would wager a bet that most either had a Tiger Moth on its inventory or had visits from this type of aircraft
