Commemerative Shadow Box

The background material in the shadow box is from one of Edward's dress Jackets.
The jacket pocket was burned because he and another guy, a limey fighter pilot, were walking across a bridge after having a couple of drink's and these Italian guys tried to rob and kill them.
There were guys in front of them and behind them on the bridge.
Edward had a german walther P-38 in his right pocket and just shot through the coat. He said they would have killed them both and stripped them of everything and dumped them under the bridge.
Edward took his final flight on 14 March 2007, aged 95. Hopefully he is having a beer with all his buddy's and dancing to some Harry James with his wife.
