Fliss, on the other hand was frustrated that she hadn't had a reply from Bertie, despite the various letters she had dispatched via one of her colleagues, she decided to be more than a little forward and to telephone Rawlham to have the Adjutant pass a message to Bertie, telling him that she had been given a few days leave, starting on Wednesday.

She was horrified to hear that Bertie was on the sick list and made plans to visit him as soon as possible.

Toddy reported the telephone call to Biggles, who groaned. It was looking increasingly likely he'd have to have Fliss placed under arrest.

Biggles thought about what the charge could be and shuddered. At some point, no matter how he wrapped it up in legalese, he would have to say he was having her arrested because he thought her perfume was making his officers act strangely.

Toddy's next statement cause him to sit up and take notice. "She rang because Bertie hadn't responded to her letters. She had first thought that the colleague she'd asked to post them hadn't bothered, but of course, we know that's not the case."

“she asked someone to post them?” Biggles asked very seriously.

Biggles took the details then paused before ringing Raymond once more. Perhaps Fliss could be interviewed on her way to visit Bertie about her role in these affairs?

To his intense relief, Raymond agreed, although he did warn Biggles that if there was the slightest hint that Fliss was actively involved she would be arrested.

Biggles considered carefully what he wanted to say to Fliss. He thought that a short message asking to see her re Bertie before she visited him wouldn't alarm her. But he would have to ask her not to wear her perfume. He couldn't interview her in a gas mask.

But how could that be achieved, he wondered. Really, he thought, beginning to get annoyed, this should be the Intelligence chappies doing this, not him.

He picked up the phone again. He spoke to Raymond more frankly, and asked if someone else could interview Fliss. “Lissie’s a damn fine Officer for all his escapades,” he declared, “and I’d hate to lose him, which I will if things go pear-shaped, because the working relationship we have won’t survive it.”

Raymond agreed, and promised to send out 'just the right someone'.
That someone arrived the next day, had iron-grey hair and was built like a brick outhouse.

Biggles wondered if Fliss would view Helena as a confidente. He, personally, was terrified by her.

Biggles went looking for Jean, the officer in charge of the station's WAAF contingent, to ask her questions as to the application of perfume - he knew it was slightly different and more frequent than what he did with aftershave. As a result of that little chat he visited the mess steward, to obtain a secure, screwtop jar and some tissue paper. He wanted to be able to safely hand the suspect perfume to the security team for analysis.

Fliss was due to arrive the following afternoon.

Biggles checked the timetable and arranged for Helena to take the tender to meet the train Fliss had said she would use.

Helena set off in plenty of time, and parked the tender in the station yard. She walked into the station, and waited to speak to the station master. The railway official was somewhat overwhelmed by her sheer presence and allowed her into the Ladies waiting room without argument. He went to the signal box for information, and then sent the porter to tell her that the train would be a few minutes late as a hospital train had precedence.

Helena sat and thought about what she would say to Fliss when she saw her. She had been fully briefed by Raymond and knew she had to tread carefully. She had read Bertie's dossier and had been impressed by his war record, if somewhat bemused by some of his more adventurous doings.

After a wait of more than three times in length than the porter had suggested, the signal dropped and a distant whistle sounded.

Meanwhile, about the time the train was due, Biggles had discovered Bertie and engaged him in conversation. They discussed some recent patrol reports in some detail, whilst walking around the hangers.

They watched as Smyth cuddled up to Biggles' new Spitfire. "You are so beautiful," he crooned as he stroked the fuselage.

An airman took one look and ran to find the nearest officer.

He spotted Biggles and Bertie and skidded to a halt in front of them, hastily donning his hat so he could salute. "Sir," he addressed Biggles breathlessly. "Something's seriously wrong with Flight."

Biggles muttered something under his breath and followed the airman to where the Flight Sergeant was now sitting under the plane, arms wrapped around one of it's wheels. "I'll look after you," the mechanic was saying,"You've no need to worry about anything. Uncle Smyth will mend that poorly wing."
