    Summary

    When we left our heroes, they were preparing to leave Bolivia in a hurry after an unsuccessful orchid hunt. They had checked the job opportunities in their post and decided that meeting an old RFC comrade, Sandy Wyndham by name, in Panama, to hear his proposition, was their way forward.

    Part three of the unbowdlerised version of Biggles Flies Again, because yet again, Capt W E Johns didn't share the full tale of what happened in the South Seas to Algy.

    Summary

    The Complete Cases Of Sherlock Holmes And John Watson. All 366 cases plus assorted interludes, hiatuses, codas &c.

    1904-1914. Ah, the peace and quiet of life on the downs (retired doctors screaming during sexual encounters apart, of course). As foretold by Mr. Sherrinford Holmes there are seven more cases in their first decade of quiet country living, and family is a dominant theme of several until the last – which ends in John being both mortified and seeing someone he knows aiming to kill the King of England!

    Summary

    "If you're so interested, ask Biggles." Algy replied curtly, adding in a bitter undertone "It might be the last chance you get."
    Moving away from his friend, who quite clearly wanted to be alone, Bertie pondered Algy's addendum. What did he mean, the last chance he might get? He hadn't seen Algy that annoyed, or worried, for quite a while- what on earth was going on?

    Summary

    This meant that now, he was very tired, and just wanted a short couple of hours of restful slumber. Theoretically, he could have gone upstairs to his shared room, but if Biggles saw that he had gone to bed in the middle of the day, he wouldn't be too happy. So, he was left with the single lumpy sofa in the mess, and made of it what he could.

    Summary

    His vigilance uncharacteristically relaxed for one fatal minute, Biggles only heard the third triplane when it was too late, and the half-roll he automatically performed to try and evade the withering fire was pointless. Before he had had time to fully grasp the situation, he noticed tiny flames licking backwards from his engine, and dived in an effort not to let them reach the doped fabric that covered the machine.
    -or-
