But his drugged mind struggled to make sense of what he'd heard. He would have to try and work it out when his mind was clearer. But one thing was clear. Haggises (or was it haggi?) did exist. He hovered between feeling as he had been vindicated and scared out of his wits that the creatures actually existed.

Meanwhile Algy was heading off to meet up with Ginger and Bertie to see if they'd discovered anything. He had arranged for them all to meet at a pub quite close to the hospital.

Ginger had to admit that he'd learned nothing from his observations of Consuelo and her daughter, other than that it seemed they were in disagreement about something.

Bertie, who'd been tasked with actually following Consuelo and her daughter if they left the canteen, agreed with Ginger's report.

"Abso-bally-lutely nothing, old bean," he reported as they were waiting for their drinks to be served. "Ginger was able to park himself at a nearby table, and I hung around outside waiting for them to leave."

"What then?" Algy asked. "Why didn't you follow them?"

Further enquiry elicited the information that Consuelo and her daughter had entered the Ladies lavatories and not exited for quite some time. A long enough length of time that some other women had reported to Security that there was a man hanging around outside the Ladies who didn't seem to be waiting for anyone and they had investigated. Bertie thought that whilst he was displaying his credentials and some of the women who had reported his presence were eyeing him suspiciously, Consuelo and her daughter had managed to slip away.

"One of the oldest tricks in the book," muttered Algy, shaking his head as Bertie finished his tale. "You should have gone straight in after them!"

Bertie's monocle fell to the floor as he stared at Algy in stunned horror.

'All you have to do is say that you identify as female these days,' Algy told him. 'And there's nothing anyone can do.'

"Would you have?" Bertie challenged Algy as Ginger, watching the verbal interchange, had increasing difficulty containing his mirth. He thought, perhaps wisely, that Algy was not in the mood for laughter right now.

"Never mind," Algy said, a little testily, "it's a moot point. May I remind you that we have a missing financier to find, the man who shot Biggles and what game Horace is playing. They may all be part of the same thing or they may not be."

A nurse bustled into the ward inhabited by Biggles and Horace. She beamed at Horace. 'One of your relatives has found you,' she smiled, 'But as you've not identified him as next of kin and he doesn't know your date of birth, I can't tell him anything. Would you like to send him a message?'

"Who is it?" Horace asked sleepily. Biggles lay still, his eyes closed as he waited for Horace's answer. "Was it the mysterious uncle?

'He says he's your Uncle Maurice," said the nurse.

Biggles ears almost wagged, so eager was he to catch what was being said.

Horace thought carefully. He also looked across where Biggles lay. Horace thought he was asleep but he didn't trust these SAP types any more. He would have to send Uncle Maurice a cunningly worded message.

But the nurse was getting impatient. "I'll tell him you're comfortable, shall I? Would you like him to visit you?"

Before he could reply, the door swung open and a man entered.

"Sister said it would be okay if I visited," he said as he strode towards Horace. He was so focused on Horace that he hadn't noticed Biggles in the neighbouring bed. Biggles lay still. He recognised the voice.

The nurse twitted a bit, but left them alone together, warning Horace's visitor not to tire him out.

"Well? What have you found out?" Where his first words as he sat beside the bed, his back to Biggles.

'I'm not the outdoor type,' Horace answered, as casually as he could. 'I've found out that I don't like people shooting at me and being in planes that crash or hiking across moors and mountains...."

"Not about you," Horace's visitor hissed. "About the SAP. Is there any dirt on them that we can use?"

'I don't know what you're talking about,' quavered Horace. He did not trust Biggles to be asleep and was very aware that he, himself, was unable to escape from Biggles's vicinity with his broken ankle.

"Don’t worry, you can tell me later," his visitor said, standing up. "I'll pop by tomorrow and take you for a walk around the garden."

Horace sighed with relief and looked to see if there was any sign of Biggles being awake. Reassured on those grounds, he wondered if there were any haggises in the grounds of the hospital and how he could defend himself against them if there were.
