So much for that. It’s bad enough when one’s property is stolen, but when it turns out to be done by the remedial minds of the New Babbage Militia it really is too much!

After having noticed the missing ruby the other day I set about finding out what happened to it. A stone of that size is not going to pop up on some young thing’s engagement ring any time soon so there were only a few places to start looking.

I didn’t even have to intimidate anyone to get the information. The Militia Captain has actually boasted he had the stone in his possession! A simple task to head over to the Militia HQ and find out for myself.

Guarded by highly trained members of the Militia indeed! Their one member who can read his own name must have been on a tea break.

A few quick shots with the galvanic accelerator made short work of the locks and I was off home again. I have left them a brief note.

From what the Pawnbroker tells me the Militia got a tip off from the Hienrichs woman. She needs to learn to keep her nose in her books. And they think that Obolensky is back in the observatory! Such a crack force Militia New Babbage has it’s a wonder we’ve not been invaded again.
