I love this one, since I've been trying to do this myself.

Since Biggles is notoriously un-PC, lots of titles along that line come to mind:

Safe Space for Biggles
Biggles and the Peril of Color
Biggles Checks His Privilege
Biggles Wears a Burkini

And then there are current world realities that could do with a generous dose of Biggles:

Biggles on Wall Street
Biggles Trumps an Election
Biggles and the Creepy Clown
Biggles Tweets a Warning
The Biggles Guide to Dressing Like an Adult
Biggles Stares at the World Confused

Very good. I like all of those. I did not realise the creepy clowns were in America too. Biggles did have trouble with a clown in one of the SAP short stories.

Creepy Clowns are also causing 'issues' in Australia too, what with impressionable youngsters doing the 'copycat' thing [after watching Youtube etc], stalking strangers & causing fear in the neighbourhood.

[Biggles in a Burkini? :shock: ] Hmm...what about Biggles Joins The Rainbow Crowd? :o :? :scared:

I think the creepy clowns are another of the USA's proud exports to the rest of the world. They're everywhere now. There was a knife-wielding clown attack in Sweden the other day. Perhaps we can get a battalion of clowns together and send them after ISIS, if they're that eager to pick up weapons.

"Biggles and the Levantine Clowns". Biggles could do an air drop into Syria. No need for parachutes. Their ballooning pants would see them safe to the ground.

As for "The Rainbow Crowd".....how about "Biggles Flies Somewhere over the Rainbow".

We have a man dressed up as Batman to to protect us from the clowns. Embarrassingly, he's made the national news.

Here's a legitimate book, that I reckon Biggles could have written.
https://www.amazon.com/Adventurers-Handbook-Surviving-Anaconda-Finding/dp/0230105572

It's called The Adventurer's Handbook and contains useful advice such as the best way to serve Polar Bear and how to survive an Anaconda attack. The Biggles method was not mentioned.

This was sourced from legitimately issued advice of the day. :shock:

You'll have to explain the subtleties of that to me. Dalston is a village I drive past on the way to Carlisle so my immediate reaction to any mention of Dalston is 'Why are they mentioning a place in Cumbria?'


"How to write TV scripts. My years writing for East Enders and Dr Who" by J. Bigglesworth


This made me laugh.
