Re: Meanwhile, in Australia.....

Don’t think so. There were some small beasties which could cling to you and Dickpa said something about if you broke it off you had to winkle the head out with a pin. I remember thinking that could be a bit gruesome. I'll try to remember to check the reference tomorrow. I've checked. No pins were i...

They're out of copyright now in Canada and the USA.
But how long until they are reprinted and/or on the internet in Canada and the USA?
Only publishers would be able to tell you that. Any freebies out there you would probably have yo search for yourself.

Re: The Chat Thread

For the first twenty five years of my life I lived in the same place, so I stuck to that. I've moved around a fair bit since then so suspect if I had gone with those sayings I learned in later life, I might have confused it too.

Re: Swimwear

A quick trawl of the internet found an old black and white photo of girls from the Palm Beach YWCA in the sea. I can't date it but the type of costume they wore will show it was quite early on. 240E223D-99F3-4027-889A-261E7B1E60FC.jpeg I also found, in passing, a reference to boys swimming nude in g...

Re: The Chat Thread

I thought it would be fun to take despite knowing my English is a real mis-mash that changes wherever I am and who I'm talking with. I broke the quiz! My answers are all over the place and it just said "you don't fit here at all"! Maybe I don't speak English at all? Well, you certainly fit here. :l...

He told Algy to go and let the others know what was planning, then went to check out the old barn. The hayloft overlooked what he had good reason to believe was the the kitchen.

"I really would like to be there when you tell the Queen Bee that you've got a load of prisoners and that you think they're male but would she mind checking?" Algy would have exploded with mirth had he not been taking part in a covert operation.

"There's usually at least one man around. An all woman farm is most unusual, but there's only one way you're going to find out," Algy grinned, standing away from the wall he had been leaning against. "Only....if you get your face slapped you'll know you've got it wrong."

"Farming's a Reserved Occupation," Algy pointed out. "Even for able-bodied men. In fact, now you come to think of it, I find the absence of any man suspicious."

Re: Have Your Cake and Eat It

Biggles, meanwhile, thankful that the Home Guard were being distracted, had deployed his men according to his plan. It was quite simple. After careful reconnaissance storm the farmhouse and take prisoners. He reflected wryily that in wartime, almost anything could be sanctioned.

The Home Guard, taken by surprise, thought that the Germans had taken the squadron personnel prisoner and had taken their uniforms. A pitched battle commenced.

Re: Have Your Cake and Eat It

Once again Ginger found himself running towards the sound of an explosion. Only this time, he was followed by a platoon of the Home Guard, who, arriving at that precise moment in answer to Ginger's summons, were convinced the airfield was under attack and acted accordingly. Perceiving that the guard...

Ginger had arranged for an airman to let Taffy know when to start his show, so he, Taffy, found a perch where he could easily spot the man coming.

"Oh, for Pete's sake," Ginger exclaimed hotly. "How on earth did you ever manage to get your pilot's licence? You're a walking disaster area. You should go and join Jerry. The war would soon be over."

Re: Have Your Cake and Eat It

Ginger looked at Taffy pityingly. "I wouldn't be in your shoes for all the tea in China when Biggles finds out about this," he retorted, trying not to laugh. "No, don't go and get cleaned up. You'll convince the Home Guard that something really is afoot. Go behind the Cow Shed ready to do your stuff."
