I was just writing an article for the BIGGLES FLIES AGAIN magazine and I genuinely accidently referred to "Biggles Gets His Men" as "Biggles Gets HIT Men".
I only noticed it in a re-read ...............

Biggles Toes Home - too much walking causes blisters

Biggles Toes Alone - as above, but without Algy's shoulder to lean on.

Biggles and the irate Treasure - Stop molesting me. I want a real archaeologist....

Biggles Scores a Ball - Biggles takes up soccer

Biggles Scores a Bill - Cost of doctor's visit after tearing a ligament from previous effort...
