To actually get back on topic for a while there is another small mystery involving the Scout. According to the link

UK Serials

Scout XV135 an ex 660 Sqdn Soest aircraft was scrapped in the Far East in the 80's.
However prior to 1979 a stripped out Scout fuselage lay on the fire dump at Middle Wallop.
Poking around I noticed that the anti slip walkway in the cockpit doors was outlined in a non standard orange paint. The only aircraft I had ever seen like that was XV135. All the panels had been removed, these would normally have the identification stencilled on them. However one panel remained thrown into the bottom of the aircraft, a panel from a tailboom. Stencilled on it was XV135.

A time machine would help at this point!!!
