Battler Britton and the Pusser's Spitfire

I was sad to hear that Ian Kennedy recently passed-away at the age of 89. There goes another one of my childhood heroes. This short story was from Thriller Picture Library number 265, published in 1959. He drew this in his late twenties. It's interesting to see that some of his style is established and recognisable, but there are some things he hasn't quite refined yet. He's still working out how to render some elements, like the sea on page seven and the sea exploding at the bottom of page eleven is a bit of an experiment.  

Thanks for all the wonderful art, Ian.
