    Trying to find a book for a mate it was also made into a film. I thought it was called wings over Athens but apparently not. Basic story two British airmen in hospital in Athens in WWII after crashing. Germans invade Brits have to escape etc.

    It's a true story and one of the airmen was my mates dad who died whilst my mate was very young. Any help tracking down the title and maybe a copy would be most kind.
  2. I think its called Fly Fishing by J R Hartley .....:)

  3. Is his name Bigglesworth, Lacey or Hebblethwaite?

    Biggles Flies into the Acropolis?

    A surname may help here. e.g. "...the true story of xxx and xxx who..." or "...starring xxx xxx as xxx xxx". Otherwise, it's like looking for a needle in a Greek urn.

    Awaiting the joke about 30 bob a week...

    No more info I'm afraid. My mate was adopted after his dad died and Ive no idea what his surname was then, other than it was eastern european (i think)
