      A wartime smuggling operation22 June 2015 If there is one person that you can expect to deliver the goods it has to be Biggles. Seriously, we are talking about the guy who, according to Captain W.E. Johns, single handedly defeated the Germans in World War I, and by the way he is going in this collection of books that I am reading, seems to be on his way to produce a repeat performance in World War II. Together with his buddies Ginger and Algy they make up what is effectively a special forces out [...]

      A lesser Biggles’ adventure, featuring a rather tetchy hero, who has been asked to get a lot of rubber out of Malaya at the height of WW2.As a plot driver this is terrific- rubber was a precious commodity, vital for the war effort and the vast bulk of the world’s natural rubber was produced in Malaya, (little synthetic rubber around then) and the Japanese were in control of the country. Biggles’ scheme is to build a floating landing strip and use Liberators to fly the stuff to India, aided [...]

      Chosen as something to read aloud to my boys whose appetites for being read to was flagging. I'd remembered it as rather a good one (I read the entire series when my publishing company reissued them and I was given the job of picking which ones we'd do). My son was doing the war in the Pacific as a special project so this seemed to fit. Sadly, my memory was wrong - it's weak, overfull of chaps zipping back and forth to India, while Biggles sits it out on a Pacific island. There's little high ten [...]

      In which Biggles' feelings for Algy are likened to Alexander's feelings for Hephaestion. But in a subtle and manly way.

    5. Matt Cartney on said:

      One of my favourite Biggles books. A critical rubber shortage doesn't sound like the basis for a thrilling yarn, but in John's capable hands it becomes an exciting adventure packed with action. The ingenious scheme upon which the plot hangs may be fictional, but its just the sort of thing the loonies at the Air Ministry might have come up with during World War II!

    6. Mick Scrimshaw on said:

      I love reading old adventure stories and the Biggles books are right up my street. One of the things I like is the insight they give to the values and attitudes from yesteryear, although it does require making all sorts of allowances for the time they were written in and that’s not always a comfortable process. W. E. johns has been accused of racism many times and with good reason when looked at with our modern values. This book written just a couple of years after the trauma of World War Two [...]

      Een, in mijn ogen, mindere verhaal uit de Biggles' serie. Vandaar ook twee sterren.Biggles wordt gevraagd om, samen met zijn vrienden, en een oude bekende rubber te transporteren vanuit een eiland in Malaya, voor het door de Japanners wordt ingenomen. Li Chi, een voormalig smokkelaar, heeft hier van zo'n 5.000 ton opgeslagen liggen op Olifant-eiland, en zoekt een manier om het weg te krijgen.Eenmaal ter plaatse bedenkt Biggles een soort drijvend platform om de vliegtuigen op te laten landen. Hel [...]

      I think I read this one but W. E. Johns wrote two almost identical books. This one and Biggles in Borneo
