This incredible e-mail came through on Marg’s iPhone shortly after Angelo had spotted Colonel Tom on the river-bank in France. Marg was both puzzled and annoyed about this as she had never had any “art” as grotesque as the two pictures Hillary had forwarded.

Leaving Colonel Tom with Angelo in France, Marg caught the next flight to London, to investigate.

Arriving home, Marg was greeted by two even more grotesque objects than she had imagined. All became clear when she had opened a huge pile of personal mail. The two objects were a legacy from the late Diamond Jack’s estate and had been shipped from the USA by the executors of his estate.
Marg was about to dispose of them when an urgent message arrived from the Brigadier.
