    Summary

    Algy gives Bertie some bad news.

    "“Well, at least I’ve got you still, Towser old boy” Bertie murmured huskily, gathering the dog up in his arms and carefully putting the letter on his bed, buying time before turning to face Algy again."

    Prequel to the 'A barful strife' series.

    Summary

    As you may remember, our heroes were anxious to leave Bolivia for a time after an encounter with a witch doctor and the accidental inhalation of some local herbs. We left them about to interview a certain Professor Smilee, to see if he could provide them with paid employment elsewhere, preferably an elsewhere a long, long way from La Paz. It goes without saying, that the story told by Biggles to W E Johns (The Blue Orchid, Biggles Flies Again) has been heavily censored. However, I happen to have access to Biggles’s original diaries, in which he records what really happens. The first part of the story will be familiar. The second has not, to my knowledge, previously been shared.

    Summary

    Biggles has been tapped on the shoulder for a solo campaign during World War Two. James can't live with leaving Algy alone in the middle of a war, but he can't live with abandoning his country during a time of need.

    But young men think it is, and we were young." - A. E. Houseman

    Summary

    An introspective in which Algy is worried he has forced himself on Biggles (as if Biggles couldn't look out for himself!) and Biggles isn't worried at all.
    At no stage is Biggles called anything other than James.

    Summary

    There's also stamps, because Biggles loves stamps.

    Summary

    A spot of WW1 banter featuring our favourite aviators. Wilks is flying SE5s and has a point to prove - when Biggles does better than expected, Wilks has to move on to Plan B. Never fear, though, Algy has the last word in the end!

    Do I get bonus points for including 'rocketing pheasant' and 'ejaculated' (as opposed to said) in the text?

    Summary

    “Thought I was done for at last, did you?” Biggles smiled faintly. “I don’t mind telling you, I thought that more than once myself. And yet, here I am, alive and well.” He gestured with his free arm, then winced. “Well. Mostly.”

    Summary

    “All right,” he says at length, and it’s clear now that he’s talking about something entirely different. “You know. The question is, what do you want to do about it?”

    “That depends on what you want to happen next,” Algy replies, surprised at his own daring. “We could forget this ever happened, and I could go back to bed. Or,” he hesitates. “We could...not.”

    Or: Biggles and Algy's feelings get the better of them on the long road back to France after Biggles Flies East.
