"I apologize, I did not find the body but had been investigating it, I believe I was unclear with Anna. The woman was indeed Nell Murrow, rest her soul."

“I wasn’t aware of the name of the woman, but I was aware that the mangled body was important and possibly murder by Exter.” Anna added helpfully.

"Yes, I think you've covered it, Mrs. Cruckshank," said Maggie Duncan.

"You may borrow the diary if you think it will help lay the poor girl to rest," said Giles Curry. "Whoever - or whatever - killed her is still out there, and it could strike again."

Spoiler:
There weren't a whole lot of options with so many places closed on Sunday. Madeline Steadman bore closer scrutiny. Currently there was no telling what she was doing, but it might be a good idea to have someone follow and watch her. There might also be something of interest in her home. Of course, it could not be searched while she was at home, and breaking in could be problematic even in her absence. The British Museum might be another source of information, but it wasn't open yet, and even then getting access to the information they needed might not be so easy. They would need someone with connections there to gain access to the Reading Room, and that was assuming the research materials they needed hadn't been transferred to protect them from air raids. If the creature that had killed Nell Murrow existed, then there was a good chance that there had been other encounters with it or something like it in the past. Trying to find out more about it was one possible avenue of research.

Phyllis Cruckshank looks at Mrs Duncan and then the room at large, "We could do a bit of collecting for charity on Mrs Steadman's Road. Talk to the locals, collect old clothes for the W.I. and generally have a look-see couldn't we, Maggie? We can always do with more help if anyone else wants to come along with us."

“Something tells me that I would want to talk with the British museum about those incidents as quickly as possible. Perhaps I’ll have a talk with them first before doing anything else.” Anna said.

"Does the diary name the airman?" Elizabeth asks John. "Or if not do you think you will have enough clues to identify him?"

John gives Elizabeth his most charming smile.

"There's not that many one-legged Jimmy's around, Miss, I think I know where to start looking."

He grins as he adds in a whisper.

"Sure you don't want to come along? I'm sure I could get you into the base."
"He said we were all cooked but we were all right as long as we did not know it. We were all cooked. The thing was not to recognize it."

"Oh, aye, Phyllis," said Maggie Duncan with a nod. "Good thinking."

Elizabeth laughs. "Fair point! And yes, to the other idea please." She turns to her friends, and says "I want to go with him, I'd like to investigate this."

John smiles at Story, giving his most earnest expression.

"Sir, despite the pretense I'll use to get her onto the base, I swear I'll treat your daughter with the utmost civility."
"He said we were all cooked but we were all right as long as we did not know it. We were all cooked. The thing was not to recognize it."

Story opens his mouth to say something, but he monetarily pauses and instead returns John's smile. He then simply says, "Thank you. I will hold you to that." To Elizabeth he says, "Be safe." He then looks to Brook and says to her, "Shall we go to the museum with those that are heading that way?"

"Will do," says Elizabeth, smiling in response to Story's comments. "Take care you two as well."

Brook nods to Story. "Sure, "dad"." She smiles, then looks concerned at Elisabeth. "Take care. Perhaps we should decide on where to meet up." She looks back to Story. "Here might be best? In case there's another air raid?"

Nodding in agreement Story says, "Capital idea Brook. Let's plan to meet back here."
