80 years of the Spitfire - 1936 - 2016

Lucky Southampton!

The '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

Next Twyford meeting 8th April 2017.  If you would like to give a talk at the meeting, we will be very pleased to hear from you!  Book here.
