Having a basket case crew on a dangerous mission is one way to propel a story forward and using Flight Sergeant Morgan’s working class chip on his shoulder is one way to give it some welcome depth.
Aircraft wise we are treated to having a brief glance at a Whitely at the start of the story even though most of the action uses a Wellington bomber modified to carry extra fuel and one big bomb. Surprisingly the ME 109’s aren’t really drawn very well. Also in the panel where the Wellington is dropping the big one, you can almost hear the editor saying to the artist “No it’s a big bomb. Go back and draw it bigger!”
Not only are there lots of words in this story boys in the past must have had a wider vocabulary then their modern counterparts to call upon and this is evidenced by the use of words such as “consternation”, “meticulous “and “nemesis”.
A Whitely! Now there's a fine sight!
The split tash.You don't see many of those.
Could this be the 1st thought AAGH!?
How insulting is "pig dog"?
Also could that radio be in any worse position in that open top boat?
I would if I knew where the very top secret base is located.
What's that guy doing with rocket launcer?
Also don't they teach you not to say those kind of things at bad guy school?
