Raine, please have Colin teach Dalgliesh how to count to two. It would be a shame for all those extra third eggs to go to waste. Especially during the war time. Don't they know a returned egg has to be refurbished before being sold again? Even after it is discounted as an open box item it might never find a new home since the warranty is null and void.
Good story!
