There is some sort of message encoded in the stripes of the parachute.

The Grauniad reckon it says "Dare Mighty Things", not The BEC Get Everywhere, but they may have decoded it wrong.

Sadly I think while the fabric was produced in Tiverton it was sewn into a parachute in the US, hence no chance to get a BEC sticker on it anyway...
