Habari, VictorGolf. I have been trying to find a pic of it, beginning to think I'd imagined it! Somewhere I've got a 1970 book "Vintage & Veteran Aircraft" by Leslie Hunt, which purported to list all the world's wrecks and relics but in hindsight barely scratched the surface - I'll see if the Venom graced that. It had the Messenger I recall in a garage forecourt near Helston. Proper job!
