The 2018 April A2Z Challenge

The April A2Z challange is about blogging everyday in April.  This means different things to different people… Some just blog random things inspired by the letter of the day. Others choose some extra theme(s) to guide the writing. Debs and I chose to write a story, with an added layer – read our theme reveal here!

Each day we unveil a chapter in our story of Jack Runward and his rag-tag team. The chapters are linked (however tenuously) to the relevant word from the Nato Phonetic Alphabet – our chosen theme for this year – and are consecutive. So, if you join us in the middle, you may find it helpful to read earlier chapters.  All the primary and secondary characters have been created and are entirely fictional, although we’ve made every effort to ensure all the historical content is accurate.  There are a few real people mentioned by name or in passing, but they are not doing anything out of character.

Our story opens in 1947, in post-war London …
