Did Philby have an orchid in the window at his flat in Moscow?
Agent – I do not know but today it served a purpose.
Case-officer – That it did. If this business is ever concluded – I plan to retire and grow orchids
They completed their business. The handler peeped out of the window and checked the street.
CO – The signal for next Friday is a black orchid.
Agent – Orchids are never black. I shall have to innovate.
CO – I am confident of your ingenuity.
Agent – But why a black orchid.
CO – It portends global violence ~ ‘world war’.
Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.
