The Sky Rained Camels

On November 1st, the National Army Museum is putting on a free lunchtime lecture called The Sky Rained Camels: The Parallel Careers of Captain WE Johns and Biggles!

Chelsea isn't really in lunchbreakable distance from Wimbledon, alas, but I am considering taking a day off for this.

Weirdly enough, about a month ago, I beefed-up the bit in Johns' Wikipedia article that dealt with his wartime career.

I was just slightly annoyed I couldn't track down a picture of him I could be sure was public domain.

Oh, good for you! Stranger and more hilarious than fiction, in several places!
Indeed so, I'll be interested to hear what the lecture's like.
That title sounds like a great idea for a game...
As long as the camels get a nice soft landing!
