Unsurprisingly. there was a distinct lack of response, so Biggles went back towards the Mess, hoping to find Toddy as he would also be keeping clear of the "beekeepers".

He had a tiny thread of a theory.
He, Toddy and a few others like Wilks seemed unaffected, or almost so.
Perhaps those with a significant level of command responsibility had some immunity ...

But Algy, as his 2iC had responsibility too. And one would have presumed that if anyone wanted to sabotage anyone they would have wanted to nobble those in positions of responsibility first. It was a well-known demoralising tactic. Pick off the leaders first. He decided to have another cup of tea and a cigarette to expound on this thought.

But then he remembered that Algy had spotted the affect almost as soon as it went to work on him and the others.

But that was probably because he had been briefed on it and immediately recognised the symptoms.

Biggles thought about the confusion currently reigning at his squadron and at Wilks'. He compared it to the orderly replacements that would have occurred if first the CO had been affected, then his Second and so on. There might have been demoralisation but compared to this chaos .... Words failed him.

His thoughts next turned to Fliss. There could be no doubt whatsoever that she was involved. Biggles hoped, for Bertie's sake, that she was an innocent pawn in all of this. But if so, who was behind it all? Certainly someone close enough to be able to dose her letters with the drug, whatever it was.

Biggles thought carefully.
The capsules of scent had been slipped into the cockpits of Hurricanes and Spitfires at the factories producing them.
The same perfume had been on Fliss's letters and presumably on Fliss herself.

So all they had to do was find the common denominator. He made his way to the office and rang the Air Commodore.

The Air Commodore promised to look carefully at all Fliss's relatives and contacts to see if someone could be isolated.

Meanwhile, Biggles, in an effort to take his mind off things, sat down and got all the little jobs out of the way which he'd been meaning to do for a long time. After about an hour there was a knock on the door.

'Have you seen the Containment team anywhere?' Doc Lorton asked.

"Last time I saw them they were in my office, which is why I've commandeered this one," Biggles said. "They dropped the jar. If I were you I wouldn't go anywhere near them. How are you, by the way? Did you manage a nap?"

Doc Lorton nodded. 'Enough to go on with,"

"Can you ring 701's MO?" Biggles asked anxiously. "I think you should compare notes."

"Yes, I will" Doc replied "we might even set up to visit each other's sick bays, If that's all right with you ?"

He rang sector command to remind them that 666 was still "unavailable", additonally, he didn't know for how much longer that status would continue.

Doc Lorton had a nice long chat with his counterpart in 701 and arranged their jolly. He would go to 701 first. Biggles supposed that someone might as well get pleasure out of the situation. Well, he supposed that a lot of people were getting pleasure out of the situation but those that were getting their pleasure artificially through chemicals didn't count.

Half-an-hour later Doc Lorton popped his head round the door. "Mr Hebblethwaite is awake. Do you want to see him?"

"Is he behaving as he should ?" Biggles queried the MO "I mean, has he got over his lonely Spitfire ?"

'How are you?' Biggles asked, cautiously, as he walked up to Ginger's bed.

"I've got a bit of a headache, but otherwise I'm okay," Ginger declared brightly. "I had a bit of a weird dream though."

Biggles looked around for the orderly, but couldn't see him so poured a glass of water out "Drink that, and I'll try to get you a couple od Asprin"
Ginger drank the glassful, he was thirsty, to say the least.
"Do you want to hear my dream ? or not ..." he asked

Biggles didn't really want to but wanted to see if Ginger's dream was what he had been experiencing. He pulled up a chair. "Go ahead then," He invited.
