RFC 74 Squadron Holster - what does 65 stand for?

Recommended Posts

A while ago I started this topic in a Forum section that apparently was not the right one. Someone advised me to post my question in "Equipment". And hopefully this is a better idea.

 

This is a question on behalf of an acquaintance. I myself could not answer his question at all, but I told him there sure are experts on the GWF. This Topic will prove (again) that I am right.  :-)

 

For years he has been in the possession of a Royal Flying Corps holster. It came from a small museum that closed down. It was not until he removed the webbing belt to which it was attached that

 

 RFC

      65

  74 S

 

became visible.

74 Squadron ... But what does  65  stand for? Does it refer to the owner?

Bob,

I won't say that your guess is as good as mine. For it could even be better.  :-) (I had not even thought of your guess ...)

I am waiting for someone to post : I have such a holster too, and that number definitely refers to the owner ...

But probably this will not happen ...   :-)
