I am writing the book after DWSH, the book is called Did we see them?
To whet your appetite, hopefully, for next week, here is a short extract from Algie & Bertie:-
Back at the club, Charlie had packed and said his farewells to the group of friends, none of them had any idea of what was in the note he handed to Jarvis and none wished to use the fated letter, giving them permission to institutionalise him.
Charlie set off on the first part of his journey-the trip to Southampton-and remained unsure of the motives of the group he met clandestinely, “What did they hope to gain, if we find Fawcett?” he pondered as the train passed along the line.
On arriving at the station in Southampton, Charlie was greeted by Tommy Curridge, after the usual pleasantries shared by old friends, he said, “I presume you have sorted your business out, Tommy.”
The flaxen-haired Tommy-whose physique showed he had lost nothing in the years since they had been at school-replied, “Don’t worry, Charlie, everything is in order and ready to move on your word.”
Charlie looked around the old yard and said to Tommy, “Take a good look, we might not see home again for months-if it all, Tommy. We’ll sleep at your house tonight and make an early start, the ship doesn’t leave until noon, but I want to do a final inventory check before we depart.”
Tommy and Charlie went to Tommy’s house and after a hearty dinner, they went to their rooms for the night-Charlie slept fitfully, this to him was something new, but Tommy didn’t sleep; he had only been back in the country a short while from a trip abroad before he received Charlie’s letter, and although he wanted time to get back to regular life-how could he refuse an old friend?
