Indexer Notes

Writer revision from John Devlin to ? by Craig Delich 2013-4-7. The Who's Who does not indicate that Devlin wrote this strip. Writing credit changed to "Bernard Dibble?" This story features a typical Dibble name (Fitzpretty), suggesting he was the writer.

Artist revision from John Devlin to Bernard Dibble, who took over as artist of the strip in 1943 from John Devlin.
