Not every find is as valuable, but today we picked up an interesting piece of history. A metal RAF pass to get into Biggin Hill – it bears the stamp of George V, so has to predate 1936. Even more interesting was the elderly gent who sold it to us, he'd been based at Biggin Hill, flown the planes and not only that but taught the instructors who would go on to teach the pilots. There's quite a few old folk behind stalls, running their own little businesses and treating the whole carbooting experience as an excuse to socialise. I'd love to listen to all their stories, and I'd love to know more about the original owner of what is now our RAF pass to Biggin Hill. I often fantasise about flying …I know many people share this dream – maybe because it's the ultimate freedom?
Speaking of classic fantasy and flying "The Griffin Cryer" is my debut giveaway on the readers' site Goodreads. Okay, this plug's a bit clunky, and I don't for one moment expect a future treasure hunter to swoop on my little book with bated breath – but you can win an autographed copy just by clicking on the link below. Have fun and fly safely!
