Himmel...


It takes two days to send an emergency signal?  Why is the Leutnant steeped in shadow? How can an oaf be trustworthy? Is the Leutnant a yes man? Are the high command in Italy the right people to receive an emergency signal? Why not the high command in Germany? Is it really an emergency? Is two days really enough time? How can you say 'himmel' without an exclamation mark?

Oversized versus Undersized.


Strange things happen when men are forced together. Even stranger when large men produce large broom handles to terrify smaller men. There may be a simple misunderstanding about what 'funny' means. To some a reasonable explanation might not be enough given that emotions are highly charged. Perhaps if everybody kept their shirts on and broom handles at a respectable angle there might be less of an opportunity for mischief and mischance.

Now cough...


Doctors can be funny people. But not as funny as some of their patients. Asked to cough most people would just get on with it. Some however want to make with small talk at a critical juncture. What turns a normal person into someone who enjoys the uncomfortable encounter will remain a mystery for evermore.

Square head, big hands.

Some people are overly blessed in the angled scone department. Squadron Leader Green is one who is greatly blessed. I imagine as a child the other children would have used his head as a set square during wood working classes. Not only is he bestowed with a head that won't roll away he also has enormous hands. Do the two run concurrently in his family or is he considered a freak? He's the kind of chap who would make sure that when he orders a cocktail it comes in an extra large glass.

That sure is a lot of aircraft!


How many aircraft can you jam in one small area of the sky?The answer is of course 24 (or there about). However that doesn't look like nearly enough when you sit back and look at it properly. Looking at it another way...the attitude of Red Leader is absolutely correct. Being out numbered by 10 to 1 is really an opportunity to shoot down more of them before they shoot down all of you. Tally Ho! What!

The mystery of the pipe



Awe. This is where others are left. Rough men, hard men, dirty men find themselves standing in it. Why? How? It is the mystery of the pipe. The pipe allows one man to walk alone, in shadow, without eyes - yet he sees all. What gentle smoke does waft forth that can make one man stand before so many? Even the fur collared cravat wearing types are challenged to providing a self satisfying answer. Others, the less well attired, are driven to stone cold muteness.Quiet intervention becomes surprise. Really no surprise when the mystery of the pipe is involved.

Scant


Sleeping in! It's all too much at times. But when the sun is there and all you've got is a few leaves to keep you away from the cancer bolts enunciating your displeasure might be your only option. Is it time to stand in the open or is it time to hide?

When medical men smoke...


I like it when medical men smoke - it's as if they know something we don't. The evidence is overwhelming, yet there are those who choose to ignore it or consider it somewhat irrelevant. You would think that the price of incredulity would not be worth the risk. But there they are. Doctors that smoke. Perhaps it's a carry over from an old school curriculum that involved bleeding for most ills and trepanning to release any number of malignant maladies.  Also the ability to talk while puffing on a pipe, particularly in the presence of rough looking men, can only be a skill taught at the best of medical schools. Sadly these days the finer things in life tend to be discarded.

You don't need to be big and bad...



...to win the fight. Maud is fine example of 'punching above your weight'. All these fellows seem pretty happy that Maud is there to convey them from their current place to another place. No doubt a place that does not have dark skies and to a place where they can continue to grin. So from lurid evenings (by the way my interpretation of lurid would make me want to stay, but that's just me) to fierce beginnings the happy men on this little boat motor their way to a better future.

A man called Harry...


If you've ever met a man called Harry you'll understand that this illustration exemplifies every Harry you've ever met. They all appear to posses the same qualities; a keen eye, a steady hand, and an overwhelming understanding of how the world works. It's not an easy task to contemplate the world in this manner. Others are always trying to promote or remind everyone they meet that there are great calamities or even worse on the horizon. However as any Harry would know there's more to life than worrying about disasters either imagined or real.
