Trivial Connection of the Day

This is a good one. Malcolm Redfellow Revivus writes:
There is a bizarre link between "Biggles" and "Just William". The model for "Captain" (in reality, never more than a Flying Officer, with some six weeks of combat experience) W.E. Johns' character derived from Air Commodore Cecil George Wigglesworth. Meanwhile Richmal Crompton was mudding up her brother, John Lamburn. Lamburn was first with the Rhodesian police, worked in China, and did war service with the RAF in Iceland under ... Wigglesworth.
Note too the gratuitous photograph of the genitals of Michelangelo's David.

Integral to the argument, dear boy. Anyway, if Florence can have two Davids, one for indoors, one for outside, surely I'm allowed a bit.

Nice to be noticed, however.
