One day I’ll fly away

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

YOUR let­ter from Nancy Say­ers in Queens­land on the sub­ject of in­sects (Novem­ber 1) re­minds me of an oc­ca­sion in the deep­est wilds of north­ern Namibia, where, dur­ing an ad hoc game of backgam­mon with my brother by can­dle­light, my ap­par­ently im­preg­nable po­si­tion was fa­tally un­der­mined when one of my ‘pieces’ sim­ply sprouted wings and flew away. Ed­ward Dixon, Ox­ford­shire
