Toastrack RNAS and the Bordello Incident
« on: February 03, 2018, 10:10:00 AM »
A game of Wings of Glory using the Standard Rules. With due acknowledgement to Grimjack of the LAF as creator of Sub-Lieutenant Toastrack RNAS.
The scenario is that one of the British aircraft has a camera and must take a photograph of the target by stalling his aircraft within short-range of the target. The Germans must prevent this from happening or down the camera aircraft before it returns to base.


Colonel W. T. F. Kenwood-Chef DFC entered the pilots mess of No. 46 Squadron early that fateful morning. It was a dull and misty morning with rain forecast over the Ypres region all day. Roger Toastrack had a serious hang-over and was concentrating on keeping greasy fried eggs in their current location, rather than allowing them to make a re-appearance on his breakfast plate. Flight Lieutenant Gubber had snitched a parcel sausage-side and gone goose over stumps frog-side and 46 had held their traditional wake for a departed pilot.

Toastrack had been on attachment to 46 Squadron for some time trying to pass on his legendary skills at advanced navigation to a load of pongoes. A hopeless task, he felt.

“Ah, Toastrack,” boomed Kenwood-Chef. Toastrack’s head-ache was not improved by the foghorn-like tones of Kenwood-Chef’s normal speaking voice. “Got a little job for you this morning, I want you to rendezvous with a reccy bod and escort him over the lines to Roulers. The Château de Rumbeke to be precise.”

I say, Snappers, you sneaked this one in.

Before popping over to your blog to read about it, I must ask if Kenwood-Chef invented the expression “Scramble” which was so popular in the Second bout of unpleasantness with our German neighbours?

Sir Douglas,

I believe Kenwood-Chef was involved in some early experimentation with 'scrambling' for the RFC.  ;)

Ah, Kenwood-Chef - very popular man, known as a good mixer; always blended in and in adversity, never beaten.
