Caterpillar Club
Guy Lochhead, 13/06/10
This is an informal association of people who have successfully parachuted from a disabled aircraft to save their life. After authentication by the parachute maker, applicants receive a membership certificate and lapel pin. The pin was not official RAF wear, and was therefore worn on the underside of the lapel on service dress uniform, and/or sewn to the underside of the pocket flap on Battle Dress. The club was founded by Leslie Irvin of the Irvin Parachute Company around 1922. Include a red- eyed Caterpillar Club pin on the first character’s uniform – blue eyes were used near the end of the war due to the red material’s unavailability.. Make sure any parachutes used are Irvin?
