This photo, supplied by John Beisly, shows Squadron Leader Pearce speaking to his Pilot, Art Heathcote. Bicycles were a common form of transport at Skipton-on-Swale, due to the wartime fuel shortage. It appears that Squadron Leaders used motorized bikes as opposed to the leg power utilized by other airmen.
