The Treasure of the Etruscans

'Listen to me, Lettice,' Algy pleaded. His sister was shouting at one of her numerous offspring and Algy suspected she was about to put down the telephone in order to better deal with the child.

'This is important. The oddjamacallits the kids borrowed when they visited last weekend. I need them back. Apparently they are very important to Biggles's uncle. Can you bob them into the post for me, urgently?'

The telephone receiver was replaced. Algy groaned and resisted the impulse to bang his head against the nearest wall.

'It's no good,' he told Biggles, 'we're going to have to go up to Merioneth and collect 'em ourselves.'
'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

"What's this 'we'?" Biggles asked him sarcastically.

'I need back up. And they listen to you slightly more than me. And it's your uncle that wants his thingies back.'

It's your nevvy and niece that pinched 'em in the first place. Doesn't Lettice understand the meaning of the word 'discipline'?"

'No. She believes in self expression so the little darlings don't grow up fettered by convention, and screaming at them if they do anything especially vile. I didn't know that those things in the package from Dickpa were clues to a fabulous treasure, though. They looked like bits of rubbish that it was ok for them to play with, and their game was keeping them quiet.'

Biggles sighed. "I suppose there's no chance of your mother being away, is there?" He asked hopefully.

'We can always hope,' Algy said hopefully.

Biggles sighed and reached for the phone. "I'll ring Smyth and have him prep the Vandal."

'You want to give all of Lettice's children joy rides?' Algy asked. Biggles arrested his hand. 'I'll get train tickets.'

Soon they were on their way to Merioneth. The urban sprawl of London was left behind and all too quickly, they had changed trains from the mainline to a local line and were slowly chugging through the countryside. It was raining.

'I have no Idea', replied Biggles irritably, wondering what the Hell he was doing on public transport. 'Just ask em'.

'Did you never want to hide anything when you were a kid?' Algy asked. 'Was there nothing you didn't want to share or have pinched or be told tales on? Not even a book that you shouldn't have been reading?'

'No.' replied Biggles scowling at the rain as the train stopped yet again. 'Never have secrets', he said. 'They just come back to bite you'.

'You only say that as you didn't have any sisters!' Algy accused. 'If you'd had sisters like mine, you'd have had a whole series of secret hiding places protected by traps to keep your bits safe.'

'I shall tell Cleopatra that you've changed your mind and will marry her when she's grown up,' Algy threatened.

"I don't have enough money," Biggles said smugly. "That child will be on the lookout for a Rothschild or Onassis."

'You want to risk it?' Algy grinned. 'She's tenacious. You've been in her sights since she was three and she's showing no signs of giving up any time soon.'

'Anyway', Biggles added. 'we're going to be in and out. Quick cup of tea whilst they fetch back the dodahs then the train home.'

Algy's mother was delighted to see Algy and Biggles. She bore them off to the drawing room as they had arrived just in time to meet her dear friend Mrs Harrington and her three daughters who were paying a call.
