Some 50 + years ago, I read a Biggles book which started with an SOS on the BBC for 'Major James Bigglesworth to go to his uncle and take the same precautions as on the previous occasion'. Can't remember the title, and haven't seen it in the charity shops, where I get most of my Biggles book collection. Anybody recognise it and can tell me the title?

Thanks, CM.

Cpt Pugwash and SHJ, those jokes are too old even for the Pprune Friday jokes page!

There are only fleeting opportunities to tell such jokes of yesteryear and we pounced like coiled beasts from the joke tree simultaneously to exercise that right. Does anyone under a certain age even read Biggles books anymore ???? Now i'll slink off before you have a Dick Tracy query….

I seem to recall the author frequently had the characters "ejaculating".

"Get your clothes on, Algy," murmured Biggles curtly.
"Shan't," returned Algy, teasingly
"He's coming at us out of the sun!" yelled Ginger anxiously.
"Put your bloody trousers on, Algy," repeated Biggles grimly.
