Gremlins, leprechauns -- call them what you like -- they all had it in for Lieutenant Johnny Dawson. He was the sort of bloke whose Sten would suddenly jam for no reason, or he'd be the one in a million who'd be issued with the grenade with a faulty fuse. Yes, Johnny had a real JINX.

It should have been an honour to fly as wingman to Philip Templeton. Wasn't he "The Shark" -- the sleek, efficient, deadly fighter ace? His boyish charm and good humour had won him many admirers, so why feel uneasy? Could it be you saw the other side of the man -- the cold, calculating glory-hunter who let nothing stand in his way, even murder? If the victim were an enemy in time of war, then that could be understandable, but what if The Shark's next victim was his wingman? Thats right -- you! Weekly British War comics digest.

Gold-smuggling, gun-running, he was a tough guy who took all kinds of chances in his fast old converted MTB to make a quick dollar.

    Convict Commandos - Written by Alan Hebden. Art and Cover by Manuel Benet. There you are -- stuck in a military prison in Singapore when the Japanese smash into town. You know that if being a prisoner of the British is bad, being a prisoner of the Japanese will be ten times worse. So if a man in a British officer's uniform was to offer to get you out if you'd work for him, you'd agree to do anything he ordered, wouldn't you?

Soaring above the battlefields of the Western Front, the pilots of the Royal Flying Corps saw themselves as guardians of chivalry -- gentlemen fliers. So Lieutenant James Wilford, the pilot of a Farman MF11 Shorthorn, got a shock when he met his new observer, Captain Alan Kingston. This gun-toting, hardened veteran had already seen action in the trenches...and had no time for old-fashioned chivalry. If the Huns wanted a fight...they'd get one! Weekly British War comics digest.

They were keeping him away from the front line -- a man like Sergeant Kelly!

It was carved on the wall of an ancient tomb -- The Eye of Ra, sun-god of Egypt. The legend said that if it gazed on anyone defiling the tomb, that person was doomed. The men who discovered it laughed at the idea, but one of them died violently and the others vanished without a trace!

His judgements were respected even by those on the receiving end of a verdict. When he joined the Army's legal branch, he remained the same hard but fair man. His working environment changed, though. Gone were the wood-panelled courtrooms, replaced by tents or makeshift offices. And another thing changed, too. He picked up a rifle...to deadly effect. Weekly British War comics digest.

In the steaming jungles of Burma, man has a thousand enemies -- the wild animals, the snakes and poisonous insects, the deadly fevers. But the fighting British jungle patrols had an enemy more deadly that any of these -- the creeping Japanese soldiers who could appear from nowhere and sow the lead seeds of death before melting again into the waiting green background. But Sergeant Tom Flynn had his own way of silencing the Banzai cries of those Sons of Nippon.

It didn't matter very much what you gave Ken Bradley, boxer turned paratrooper, to fight with. His bare fists made him a match for a handful of Germans any day. But give him a gun, especially a Tommy gun, and he'd take on anything that had a swastika painted on it. Even a tank...or a pill-box! What a man to have at your side.

    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #454: Cossack - Written by Peter Newark. Art by Victor de la Fuente. Cover by Jordi Penalva. For centuries, the Cossack horsemen rode to war over the mighty Steppes, their sabers red with blood, their savage battle-cries chilling their enemies with fear. But their greatest battles came in the Second World War when they pitted horse and saber against Nazi tanks and machine guns. It was a hard, tough war, even for the Cossacks -- so you can guess what it was like for an RAF air-gunner who escaped from a German prison camp and rode with them! Weekly British War comics digest.

When Allied ships bombarded the French fleet to prevent it falling into German hands, killing many French sailors in the process, French loyalties were further divided.
