5319: Home of Heroes: Out of the Woods
Canadian twins Tom and Harry McDonald were as different as they come — Tom a burly lumberjack and Harry a weedy schoolteacher — but Tom would always look after his brother no matter what. As World War One broke out, they both volunteered to do their bit. Harry struggled to fit into the fighting life but Tom thrived. Then in 1915, when the Germans unleashed their first horrific gas attack, Harry found himself in Kitcheners’ Wood among the men choking on the deadly fumes. Tom came to find Harry but he too began to gag on the gas as the Germans surrounded him. Tom had always had Harry’s back – but would Harry have Tom’s now that he needed him?

5320: Gold Collection: The Silver Spitfire
A classic Commando from 1966, ‘The Silver Spitfire’ has it all — a vibrant cover by Ken Barr, stunning interiors by Gordon C Livingstone, and a gripping plot by Ken McOwan which spans the jungles of Burma, the island of Malta, and the skies over Italy before heading back to the Far East again — all in just the one Commando! And that’s not even mentioning that the Spitfire’s pilot carries with him a special talisman and the weight of a prophecy all about him and his silver Spitfire!

Originally Commando No. 199 (1966).

5321: Action and Adventure: Conchie!
The second Commando in this set about The Great War, Issue 5321 ‘Conchie!’ is one of, if not the
only, Commando about a part of that war often overlooked and looked down on. Conscientious
objectors in the First World War were brave men who chose not to fight. Berated and the source of
contempt, the conchies were courageous enough to stand up for their own beliefs — but that didn’t
mean they didn’t do their part. Men like Will Miller joined the Non-Combatant Corps who were on
the front line but unarmed when they came face-to-face with the enemy!

5322: Silver Collection: Man of Mystery
Get ready for a Commando that will blow your socks off! Writer Brenchley weaves a tale of intrigue
in the North African desert the like of which is seldom seen in a Commando. When Sergeant Dave
Wilson’s squadron is wiped out, he and Corporal Neil Rudkin are forced to wonder the desert to get
back to their camp. Then things get really weird as a man who calls himself Corporal Kenneth Kane approaches them in the middle of nowhere. Only, when they get back, Dave soon discovers that
Kenneth Kane is dead and has been for some time. Then who was that Man of Mystery?
