  No.113 "So, this is London is it?"
  The Colonel "It's my office certainly."
   "Is it?"
   "Yes. Drink?"
   No.113b "Smile" {click goes the camera}
   "A large one?"
   "I'm a newspaperman Colonel, what do you think?"
   "Of course. So what can I do for you?"
   "Number Six......"
   "Don't you know who I'm talking about?"
   "All I know old boy, is that you came here asking for an interview.......what newspaper did you say you work for?"
   No.113b "Smile" {click goes the camera}
   "I didn't. But my photographic colleague and I contribute to The Tally Ho you know."
   "No, I didn't know. Look you had better leave."
   "Why's that Colonel?"
   "Because I'm expecting an important delivery within the next few minutes."
   "A delivery of what?"
"I rather think that's my business."
"Humour me Colonel?"
"Well, it'sd not a what, it's whom!"
"It's not Number Six is it?"
"Number Six, Number Six, who is this Number Six you keep going on about?"
"He's not been seen in the Village for twelve hours now. Nor has Number Eight for that matter. Do you think they've absconded together?"
