The 150 mph winds screamed and howled through the rocky gully, while the torrential rain battered mercilessly on the rusty tin roof of the shack in which the comrades had been forced to take refuge shortly after landing. 'How long is this perishing deluge likely to last?' complained Algy, ,it's been pi**king it down for a week now.' 'Stop moaning,' replied Biggles lighting his 223rd cigarette of the day. 'We've experienced worse, or have you forgotten what it was like back in Blighty in 2014?'

"Well, yes" replied Algy frankly, "We upped sticks and went to that meeting in Brisbane and only came home once the weather improved"

Screaming, human and a more eldritch sound, startled Algy awake and sent him investigating without pause for slippers and dressing gown. Dashing into the next bedroom, he saw a wild-eyed, tousle-haired Biggles knelt on his bed, panting with shock and holding a pillow defensively.

'What on earth..' he began

'I woke up with something on my face' gasped Biggles, 'I don't know what, and I can't see anything, but I don't believe in spooks.'

Algy relaxed and his lips twitched. 'It's all right, old chap' he said soothingly. 'It'll just be that cat of Mrs Syme's again. Remember it woke Ginger last week. I'll just look under the bed for her, shall I?'

Biggles leaned, bored, on the bar of the Aero Club looking into the remains of his pint. None of his cronies were in, the worst of the Club bores had possession of the library so he couldn't read the aviation magazines, and all his flat mates were out so he wouldn't have company even if he went home. He looked up as the barman put a large brandy and a slip of paper with numbers on in front of him.

'What's this? I didn't order another drink.'

'From the lady at the corner table.'

Turning to the table, Biggles looked at the woman seated there. He noticed the caked-on makeup and the unusually bright red lips. He observed the slightly too-tight dress and the five-inch high heels. Finally, he took in the luxuriant wig that reminded him of bad 1980s big hair, coupled with large dangly earrings.
Biggles sighed. "Bertie", he said drily, "stop trying to make me feel better".

Bertie looked as puzzled as it is possible for a heavily made-up man to look. 'Trying to make you feel better, old chap? What's happened? I'm here for Smitty's stag party: Tarts, Tramps, Vicars and Vamps.'

'So why did you send me a drink and your number?'

Bertie produced his monocle and inspected the piece of paper. 'Not my number old chap, which you'd know if you'd read it. I didn't send the drink either. Try the redhead opposite'

Biggles duly turned his gaze in the direction indicated. Then he groaned. "Not you too, Ginger!", he declared.

The Club Secretary approached Biggles. "I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave." He said loftily."We don't allow those sort of girls in this club."

I'm having a very giggly day. Thanks everyone.


Biggles sat gazing into the fire, idly stroking the cat. Might the filing system work more efficiently if it was arranged chronologically then alphabetically rather than alphabetically by country, place and surname? Perhaps Ginger could re-arrange it on Monday for a trial period.

Having spent a wearying morning with a representative of the RSPCA, who for some inexplicable reason seemed interested in how he looked after his cat, Biggles was not pleased to be summoned to Raymond's office to discuss his team's latest expense claims. Returning to the office he announced that all personal clothing items on the latest submission had been disallowed. 'I'm sorry' he said to Ginger 'I know it was your only suit which shrank in the loch in Scotland. You'll just have to wear your Princess outfit until payday.'

Biggles woke at dawn to the sound of rain lashing his bedroom windows and wind howling down the chimney. 'Duvet day' he thought sleepily, snuggling further into his blankets and closing his eyes again.

He was suddenly startled by a shove in the back. "Move up!" cried Algy.

"Mrs Symes has just come back from Australia, chaps. She's brought us this wonderful jam to try called 'Vegemite'."

"I love jam" said Algy, slathering it on his scones and taking a big bite.

Ginger looked disconsolately at the crumpled mess in front of him which looked as if it needed to be viewed in an extra dimension to make any visual sense whatsoever. 'Why can't I make a flapping bird out of a crisp packet like you and Algy?' he grumbled.

"Right chaps," Biggles leaned back on his chair, straightening three pilesof scrap paper.

"It's time to practice your paper aeroplanes. The target is my cigarette case and nobody goes to lunch until they've hit it at least twice."
