“Did you have to push that far?” Biggles complained, when Algy was finally able to talk.

'I think we got rather carried away,' Algy admitted. 'But I wanted to see what they were willing to tell us.'

“Not a lot, it would seem. Algy, old lad, you might have known a Corporal would simply push the blame up the ladder.”

I think you need to go off base to do some shopping next, mused Biggles, but only when you've recovered enough.

Algy thought sending Ginger on a suitable errand to the Naafi and then setting off for the Shopping centre himself might be the next move.

The doctor insisted in keeping them all in overnight. They had all received a terrible shock and needed to recover.

Biggles was glad to have the company but wished he had a pair of eyes and ears left on the outside to report back to him.

Biggles hoped that Algy and the others wouldn’t be kept in on a flimsy excuse. He wished now he’d asked Algy to ‘case the joint’ while he was free to see if there were any weaknesses he could exploit.

Biggles still didn't understand why Raymond was wanting them to stay here. He trusted him enough to believe he had a reason, but he was very frustrated not knowing it.

Also, he must have shared something with the Commandant of the base they were on, otherwise how could the whole cooperation of the staff be assured?

“I wasn’t allowed to really see it,” Algy offered. “There were some pretty cheesed off service personnel there. It’s a favourite watering hole, apparently and now it’s off limits. That seems a bit heavy-handed.”

“I have absolutely no idea,” Algy sighed. “but that wouldn’t account for their extra special care of you.”

Bertie wordlessly offered his personal phone to Biggles, there was a text, purporting to be from the commandant and quoting Raymond's memo.

Biggles looked at it and called over the nurse demanding to see the doctor.

'Not as important as the protocol to be followed if the illness in the west of the town does turn out to be the Black Death,' the nurse said pointedly.

"It has been for the last few days," Biggles pointed out. "Still, if there's such a serious outbreak in the offing, you'll be glad to get rid of us. Just give us our clothes and we'll be out of here in a jiffy."

"But I don't want to be a patient," Biggles pointed out reasonably. "None of us do. And I'd hardly call asking to be discharged as being disruptive. "
