'W E Johns Appreciation Society' and 'Biggles & Co' meet regularly
in the UK. Biggles & Co meet in Twyford in April and WEJAS meet
in Derby in October. Some people attend both meetings, and many contribute
articles to the magazine Biggles Flies Again. This website
hopes to serve all these interests, and welcomes all those interested
in the life and work of W E Johns. All are welcome to our small, friendly
meetings, no need to "join" anything. There are talks by participants,
opportunities to browse the bookstalls and artwork on display, take
part in a quiz, and enjoy meeting other enthusiasts.
The Royal Air Force Museum at
Hendon will have a series of Johns event October 2017. During
the week of 16th October there will be lectures and a Biggles trail
using the current First World War in the Air exhibition. It is
particularly interesting that the Museum will display Johns' own experience
as a wartime bomber pilot.
