|Aerial Polo at The Castle Spongg|
A game is about to start. Here you can see the pilots |
'stacking up' prior to the first chukka.
This was an unused illustration by Maggy Roberts which was too good not to use. I liked the whole Castle Spongg halcyon days of aerial polo and indoor motor racing sort of thing so much I am currently writing a vague outline set in just this sort of world - a bit like Blandings Castle on acid, or something.
The registrations are aircraft that I have once owned.
Caption reads: "Old hands used to swear by war-surplus Sopwith Camels but the true aficionados played a more accurate chukka with the Gypsy Moth. Shell-shocked fighter-aces were the best when you got them sober; they could trounce the best side civvy street could muster without even breaking a sweat."
