Naturally! Or the flags of all the countries they'd been to...

Awkward if he went to Nepal :lol:

I suppose it could finish the scarf if you fastened it points down as the last flag. It would give the scarf a hippy feel. If I could crochet, I'd give it a go! A scarf of crocheted flags would be quite striking.

The clock on the mantlepiece struck three. Dust motes sparkled in the sunlight from the windows. The flat was silent save for the ticking of clocks.
Mrs Symes smoothed her apron and picked up her duster, she was going to dust the place thoroughly. Opening the door to Biggles bedroom she knelt by the bed and pulled a small case out from underneath. Releasing the clasps she paused briefly taking in the sight before her then solemnly placed the tiara on her head. If she was going to dust, she would do it in style.

Biggles stared at Mrs Symes in exasperation.
"But I WANT that goblet on that stand!" he argued. "Miss Janis and the Hauptmann will be so pleased."
"No, Major," was the firm reply. "There's not going to be any nasty bits of glass in any room where there's cushions and pillows being thrown about."
"And I thought they were called throw pillows," murmured Bertie sotto voce.

"One day" said Algy thoughfully "there'll be a whole web site just about us. They'll invent stories and discuss all our lives and adventures"
Biggles looked at him in alarm. Have you been at the brandy again?" he said coldly.

"All I'm saying" Algy replied mildly, "is the boy has a point. All those strong spirits just don't taste as good neat" and he sipped at his bright orange confection with the air of a man who has toiled mightily, and is now enjoying the reward.
In the corner Ginger twirled a cocktail umbrella between his teeth, something the sounded suspiciously reggae issuing from this throat as he hummed.
"Hedonists" Biggles grumbled. His 20-year single malt was a simple drink, he reflected, dropping six beads of pure spring water into the cut-crystal glass.

“Package for you, Mr Hebblethwaite,” said the constable, handing over a small box.

Ginger took it with a murmur of thanks. After the door closed he turned to Algy and Biggles as he opened the box.

“I’ve ordered those little DNA kits for both of you. It’s time to find out exactly how the two of you are related.”
"For goodness sake stop that Yankee drawl, or you'll have us all doing it before you've finished."
"OK baby - sorry - I mean, righto."
"That's better."

Bertie bounded up the stairs. "It's arrived" he chortled "What has?" said Biggles suspiciously.
"My tandem"

It was breakfast time in the Mount Street flat. Biggles was reading a newspaper which was propped up against the teapot and the others were engaged in tucking into the bacon and eggs Mrs Symes had just put in front of them.

The doorbell rang. Biggles scarcely looked up from his newspaper but he could hear Mrs Symes’ footsteps as she went to the front door and opened it. There was a brief murmur of conversation and then the living room door opened.

“Captain Lacey,” she said, addressing Algy directly. “The postie's van is downstairs. If you want your mail you'll have to go down to collect it. He nearly got a hernia last year bringing all those sacks upstairs and he's not risking it again."

Algy suddenly grinned and throwing down his napkin, followed Mrs Symes outside.

"Good grief, is it really Valentines Day again?" murmured Biggles, reaching for his cup of tea. "Time does fly."
