    [align=center]This cute RAF bear is one of the popular Biggles Bears.
    He's a 'Limited Edition' and now upon retirement he really needs a good home.

    His height is about 30cm and so a small bed will do for him. :D

    And as an RAF officer, he's modest and a couple pints every now and then will keep him happy.
    Just don't expect him to take his uniform off. ;)

    Of course the bear is new and his name is James.
    He is a Limited Edition bear of the 'Duxford Museum' collection.

    So, if you can give him a home, please bid for him till
    Sunday, 6th of September, 2200 hrs.

    (Just to make sure, this is GMT. :D )

    I'm sure you all know that there is always an urgent cause.

    So, all you airforce personnel, please back one of yours !!![/align]
     
  2. So, let's get this started - $50.00 (US) to open.

  13. Hmmm. The bear-faced (geddit??) impudence of some of the men means I now find myself compelled to offer two hours flying pay instead....
