The Case of the Obliging Tourist is the second short story in the fourth anthology of Biggles Air Police short stories entitled Biggles and the Pirate Treasure. The anthology was first published in July, 1954 by Brockhampton.

SynopsisEdit

A broken sock suspender takes Biggles to the shops where he meets an ex-W.A.A.F. girl who used to work in his squadron. She tells him how she met a stranger while holidaying in Nice, France and how he had asked her to post a parcel for him when she returned to England. Biggles is, as always, suspicious.
