Wish they would have taken a better inventory. Im assuming all items have been lost to time. The binoculars intrigue me as they are expensive and most people I know even today mark them so people know they are their property

The height of SK being 5'10 and Butch being 5'8 hardly qualifies terms like the "tall one" and "short one" Google 5'10 vs 5'8 you can see what little difference there is. Add to that they are dead and laying on the ground it would be very hard to even notice one was taller and one shorter

In researching the FW5 photo and using BenK height of 5'11 3/8 I think it is acceptable to say Sundance would be around 5'10. Butch Id say is closer to 5'9 but 5'8 would be in the ballpark

          ok. Still not a big enough difference to categorize one as tall and one as short IMO but Im sure you will disagree which is fine.

            Chris, We don't know exactly how tall BC&SK actually were, in bare feet, shoes, or boots (or stilletos), so the discussion is a bit theoretical. That said, if the difference was two inches, that's... more
