Lost Anything

Psst. Psst. Want to buy a tank?

Pardon!

Want to buy a tank?

No!

How about a Nimrod, going cheap.

Latest model?

Yeah, brand new, good price.

Where did you get it?

Well you know, a friend of a friend. Ask no questions, know what I mean. How about some heavy artillery, recoilless rifle, some good quality gear.

What sort of price?

A nice discount for you.

Yes but where do these come from, got a supplier?

OK keep this under your hat, the Ministry of Defence is letting me have some equipment they no longer require, plus bits and bobs they sort of lose, it’s a book-keeping exercise.

Is that legal?

Of course! It’s been going on for years, they mislay things on a regular basis and most items end up in my warehouse, how about an Aircraft Carrier hardly used, plus some harriers. What do you say.

Alright I will have the lot, a bulk price?

No problem.

Can you deliver?

Yes, where too?

Buenos Aires.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
