The Battle for Britain

John Stokes draws this tale for Lion dated 14th May 1966. I find it weird that, in nearly every episode there's a caption remarking on Vic Gunn's 'West African assistant, Barrel'. I'd think it'd be kinda obvious to even a casual reader at the time that he's not a honky.... Dunno, why it bugs me. Guess it's my PC sensitivity coming to the fore. By the way, when I say PC I mean Pie and Chips of course.
