THE JOURNEY NORTH

OUR party consisted of George and myself, together with Jock Horsfall, the racing motorist, who was on special duty with the War Office, one of whose 30-cwt. Ford vans we had borrowed-and, of course, Major Martin in his canister.
The journey nearly ended almost before it had started for, as we drove out from the "cold storage" to start back to George's flat in London, we caught sight of a queue waiting to see a spy film at the local cinema; the same thought flashed into each of our minds: what would those people think if we were to stop and say to them, "Don't bother about the film. We can tell you a much better story-and ours is true. Just look inside this canister"? And we all burst out laughing to such an extent that Jock almost rammed a tram-standard.
But we got safely back to George's flat. There we cooked ourselves some dinner and ate it, taking turns to keep an eye on the van outside; if a thief had got away with the canister, he would have had a disappointment-and a shock-when he opened it, but his disappointment would have been nothing to ours. So we made ourselves some sandwiches and filled thermos flasks as we realised that we could not leave the van during the journey north.
Our preparations completed, we set off for
