'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.
W E Johns died on 21st June
1968. A meeting was held in Kingston Cemetary to commemorate the
50th anniversary on Thursday 21st June 2018.
