- The war in Finland finds Biggles and his companions members of the International Squadron which goes out to assist the Finns. By chance he learns of the existence of certain papers, hidden near the Finnish border, relating to the discoveries of a Polish inventor, which would be of the greatest value to any government.
- Biggles retrieves them but only after a series of exasperating mischances that brought him nearer despair than he had ever been in the whole of his adventurous career.
