bryony piper | 1 comments I read this book as a child so it would have been published early 80's i believe. It had a man with a motorbike and sidecar who called himself wombat man. He taped ears on his motorbike helmet and his nephew was his side kick in red long johns and his mums tablecloth as a cape. They were trying to save kids who had been press ganged onto an old battalion ship. I recall a bit where they were at the beach (blackpool i think? Or brighton) its driving me potty not remembering the title or being able to find it!

You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This moves your thread to the top of the folder, so more people are likely to see this.
Good luck!
