Task Organisation: Field Team of 2-5 A.L.F.I.E.S agents
Situation: Ernest Hemmingway (Codename TORO) the noted American journalist and author is a friend the the Free City of Liverpool. He is also a bon vivant, glory hound and daredevil. As such he pernamently has teams of ALFIES agents arranded to his close protection as part on the ongoing OPERATION DADDY LONG LEGS. This particular evening TORO is entertaining 3 foreign journalists with a night out in Town and it is imperative that he chamrs them to the City’s cause, while not succeeding in putting himself or the journalists in harm.
Aside Hemmingways self-destructive tendencies it is possible that enemy agents may wish to embarass the City by killing him.

Liverpool Police are aware of Hemmingways exuberances and his importance – though individual Constables may have taken a dislike to him.
