Soldier Sharp-The Rat of the Rifles

From the first ("Great news chaps!") merged issue of Battle & Valiant dated, 23 October 1976. This strip comes over from Valiant with nice art by Joe Colquhoun. Kind of an unusual strip this one. Sharp was an interesting character: he was the antithisis of the usual 'hero' being an utter scumbag, who'd sell his own mother to save his skin. From what I remember, he had his comeuppance in the end...

    not as i recall it - in the final page he slipped away as an old russian woman refugee- the only one with british army boots according to the text

  2. He got away did he? Interesting. Usually the villain gets it in the end. I wonder if Titan books would reprint it?
