This is an auction for BIGGLES FLIES EAST by W E Johns.

"During the First World War, whilst on leave in London, Biggles is mistaken for a Captain Brunow and offered the chance of working for the Germans. Reporting the matter to Air Staff Intelligence, Biggles is asked to assume the identity of Brunow and take up the offer so that he can act as a double agent. Before he knows it, Biggles finds himself at Zabala, the HQ of the German Intelligence Staff and also the station for two German squadrons. In command is Count von Faubourg and his second-in-command is a certain Hauptmann Erich von Stalhein, who is to become Biggles' greatest enemy over numerous future stories. Von Stalhein is suspicious of Biggles immediately. Biggles' first task for the Germans is to find some Australian cavalry. Meeting with Major Raymond at a pre-arranged oasis rendezvous, Biggles is told where the Australians are and that they are moving out tonight so there would be no harm in him telling the Germans. They could merely bomb an empty camp. Biggles is also given a bomb and asked to blow up the German's reservoir. Suddenly, Biggles spots a German plane, a pilot called Leffens has spotted him meeting with Raymond and Biggles has to shoot him down to maintain his cover. This Biggles does and he lands to make sure Leffens is dead. Arriving back at Zabala, von Stalhein examines Biggles' plane and finds a bullet in it. Leffens had been firing a new type of German bullet and Biggles fears that von Stalhein is on to him. Biggles sneaks out during the night and blows up the Germans' reservoir. Soon he is being confronted by the Count about this, but he manages to come up with a believable story to save himself..."
