Just Where Are They?

How often does this question get asked? Where are they? Just what are they doing? Where's the help? Always the same complaint. Why isn't someone looking after my concerns? My problems? According to Jackboot Issues Boy the Luftwaffe seems to be run by bad guy descendants of the Scarlet Pimpernel.

Why don't you help yourself fella?

Our jackbooted friend appears not to be interested in what he could be doing. He has plenty of time to run and leap and talk -  but what has he done to help? Shaking your fists and getting cantankerous may be one way of showing how you feel. The other and more productive way is do something positive about it. Start now and get on with it!

Momentum be Damned!

Who needs acceleration when you have momentum? Clearly having neither is not a good idea or a viable strategy. The ship of three funnels bereft of good ideas decides to discover how to meet a spectacular end without even trying.

Why do amidships and explosions always seem to go together? There appears to be a strange attraction between the two. As explosions amidships go this one is  beautifully staggering with billowing smoke clouds and debris splashing the water some distance from the doomed ship.

It appears that some things are inevitable.

It Will All End in Tears

There are some situations that will no doubt only end in tears.You don't need to take a close look or understand the fundamental laws of understated tragedy to get the full impact of what happens next. Any lack of clairvoyance on the part of the  viewer will soon be made up in the subsequent panel. So a special knowledge of the future is not required to see that air power is well on its way to beating  sea power.

What a  pity about those magnificent funnels.

Terrifying but Fun.

Direction and orientation are  curious things at best. All very good if up or down is of some importance or of gravitational concern. Yet in the greater scheme of things they may be of little consequence. However try telling that to some twenty something pilot as he hurtles earthward  with a large propeller effectively pulling him towards the ground. Then it all becomes fun.Terrifying but fun. The margin for error would also be frightfully small. One wrong move and it would be over for everybody. At that point up or down doesn't matter.

Oh Those Savage Doctors

Is this one of those shirt on or shirt off moments? Doctor Deserthead seems to be only feigning interest in the paper in front him just so he can pay special attention to our friend. So what does FAA actually stand for?
Also what happened to all the other chaps who were there 2 hours ago? Did they all get to go home and sit out the rest of the war?

Again so many  questions. There are never enough answers.

Pitifully Inadequate

Where to start? Some would say it's better not to start at all. It is bit harsh to question a  man about the efficiency of his rear gun.


It's bad enough to have to travel backwards with your head sticking out of a small hole in the back of the airplane without some idiot trying to kill you with unreasonably large bullets. Then to be called desperate, why not gallant?

Oh well them's the breaks.

Hitting the Waves.

You don't often get to see one of these flying around. It's pretty special to see a Dornier Do 18 trundling just above the water.

Of course we all know what happens next.

However exchange the Dornier for a Sunderland and a cheery crew we all know who would be hitting the waves next.
I'm pretty sure I have the alternative universe version of this somewhere deep in my collection. All l have to do is dig it out.

Built Pretty Solid

There comes a time when a man has to admit that there other things to life than wearing the crisp white and mucking around with your chums. That admission is monumental. To realise that there is something else that is built pretty solid can take your breath away. This is more than envy. More than self-realisation. This is beyond an epiphany. Beyond the far shore. It is close to the heart.So it is time to link arms, look dead ahead and face the future with certainty and get ready for action.
