Nothing in shorts gets past them

The Boy Patrol on Guard.

By E.S. Ellis,

London: Cassell & company, n.d. (as usual).

Nice to see that the two chaps in the foreground have been rubbing their sticks together by the campfire.

Now I come to look, this Ellis is a bit of a repeat offender: it was he who perpetrated The Boy Hunters of Kentucky. There really seems to be a theme developing here.

Pages 59 to 64 even have instructions on knot-tying (with diagrams!), so you can keep ’em once you’ve caught ’em.

It won't surprise you to learn that I'm quite keen on books, and spend as much of my spare time as possible picking over second hand book stalls and charity book sales with my surprisingly delicate claws.
