      Dear Holmesians,
      The answer to my question regarding mentions of " Riding Crop" as a weapon of choice by Sherlock Holmes is as follows,

      - Holmes carries a riding crop , threatening to thrash a swindler with it in "A Case of Identity". 

      - With a "hunting crop", Holmes knocks a pistol from John Clay's hand in "The Red-Headed League".
      - drives off the adder in "The Adventure of the Speckled Band". 

      -In "The Six Napoleans ", he uses his crop (described as his favourite weapon) to break open one of the plaster busts.

      Regards,
      Sumalsn
