Chapter Thirty-Nine: Bert and the Ickabog Defence Brigade

So far the people of the City-Within-The-City have no idea of the hunger in the rest of the country, but in this chapter a runaway mail coach is about to change all that.

The Postal Museum has some wonderful stories about the History of the Mail Coach. Click the link to read all about them.
