Another story about Ian and Veronica Paisley: in this one, the war is over, and Ian finds a Mexican saddle at a jumble sale.  He pays 15/- for it, and finds it very comfortable to ride on, but then he is offered £5 for it by a stranger, and he is not the only person who is interested in Ian’s saddle. What the saddle actually contains is uranium, but nobody seems even remotely bothered about the radiation risks.
