Hello? hello? Die did you say??

We've been cut off by some sort of interference. Blasted German jamming I suppose.Just the sort of dirty trick they'd get up to.Probably eavesdropping on our calls for all we know. I'll show them!

Wilson!! Get Jones's van and get the platoon on board. We're going to HQ, it's under attack from Spanish 5th columnists posing as a spelling team!!

picture

Do you think that's awfully wise Sir?

Volleyfire11 Jan 2017 7:51 a.m. PST

Men! The Last Word is under threat from teams of German elite spellers and Spanish 5th columnist infiltrators. Since we invented the English language I'm determined that I'm having the Last Word on TMP. Now, all aboard the van and we'll get off to HQ and secure it from the foreign invaders!!

Don't you think you should try ringing them once more before we set off Sir? Just to be on the safe side/

Hello? Are you ringing about the grey squirrel? It's supposed to be a secret!

Grey Squirrel?? That must be the code name for the 5th columnist!

I've got some bad news Capt Mainwaring, I've no petrol, you'll have to push!

I haven't really Joe, I just like to see Mr Mainwaring having to push.

Volleyfire11 Jan 2017 12:44 p.m. PST

Finally after 6 exhausting miles they arrive……

picture

Welcome!

picture

Are you sure this is the right place Sir? And who is this dreadful man?
HQ is cunningly situated in a seaside hotel Wilson so the Germans don't spot it. He's Fawlty.

picture

Is he really? How absolutely awful, my dear chap how terribly nice to meet you.I'm so sorry to hear you're not well.

Volleyfire11 Jan 2017 12:54 p.m. PST

Never mind all that now, look here my good man, in the name of the King I demand to search your headquarters. I have information that you have a Spanish 5th columnist here who is linked to a secret agent called Grey Squirrel and I need to arrest them both before they can steal the secret of the Last Word and smuggle it out to Germany.

picture

Shoot them Captain Mainwaring, go on , you've every right to.

Volleyfire11 Jan 2017 1:11 p.m. PST

Look out there's one of them now! Shoot him Capt Mainwaring you've every right to.Go on ,just like Edward G Robinson in that film Confessions of a Nazi Spy. Uncle Arthur and I saw it at Eastgate last week.

Very well, hand me the Tommy gun Pike and stand back everybody.

He's not very big is he Capt Mainwaring? Are all German agents this small??

A fine war trophy for the platoon Wilson. I think it would make a good toupee.

Just in case there are any more undercover spelling teams hiding here trying to find out what is the Last Word I've devised a little test to see if they break their cover.

So Grey Squirrel wasn't actually a secret agent then Sir?

What I'm about to tell you Jones is absolutely Hush Hush do you understand? That squirrel was a highly trained German squirrel that was parachuted in to try and sabotage our brave boys attempts to win the spelling contest and have the Last Word.

picture

How was that Sir? Oh and by the way, if you get any more of them can I have them for the shop as I can pass them off as rabbit if you know what I mean Sir?

picture

These are trained commando squirrels Jones, sent here to gnaw through our telephone wires and disrupt vital communications!! We must stop them at all costs before they disable our entire telephone and radio network. Imagine trying to organise a spelling team with just carrier pigeons, postmen on bicycles and what not? Oh no that wouldn't do at all. The Last Word might fall into German hands and we don't want that. Imagine, all those words with o and e joined together, and those two little dots appearing over everything?

Volleyfire12 Jan 2017 6:49 a.m. PST

picture

Excuse me Sir but why don't we train our squirrels to sabotage them in return, a sort of tit for tat don't you see?

picture

Excellent idea Wilson, I was wondering who'd spot that one first! Actually Winston has already thought of this. We are training a small army of secret agent squirrels as I speak.
link
picture

They are to be called Squirrel Operations Executive, or SOE for short. The plan is to parachute them into Europe and bury every nut they can find. Lets see Hitler have his ersatz coffee every morning after they've done that, by jove!!

The Fool was once the head frog-squasher of the Gobernador's estate, a duty deemed highly important after some frogs that were placed in the ornamental ponds on the estate happened to be incredibly poisonous, completely suited to the climate, and a damned nuisance thanks to their croaking. laugh

Excuse me Captain Mainwaring but there's a man dressed as a Jester at the door wanting to know if you need any frogs removing from your pond?
