Product description

The Forgotten Patrol
A “Fighting Four” Adventure
A R Channel
The Children’s Press, London & Glasgow, 1962.

Hardback; 125 x 190 mm; blue boards with titles in silver on spine, and pictorial of sporting equipment in silver on front cover; 188 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket.

The book is in good condition. The binding is sound. Some wear and staining of the dust jacket with tanning internally. Slight wear to the spine of the covers. Page end tanning and foxing. Tanning of the front and back matter. Small bookseller’s label on the front paste-down endpaper.
A R Channel is one of the pseudonyms of Arthur Catherall (1906–1980) an English author, mostly of works for children. During the Second World War he served with the RAF in Burma and East Bengal. He also travelled widely in Europe, Africa and the Far East. His writing career was diverse and prolific, writing under his own name and also at least seven pseudonyms, including A R Channel; Dan Corby; J Baltimore; Linda Peters; Peter Hallard; Trevor Maine and Margaret Ruthin. He wrote magazine short stories, single novels and series novels for all age groups and genders.
“The desert of North Africa proves to be the arena for the next Fighting Four adventure (The Forgotten Patrol). They are now members of the Long Range Desert Group and suddenly find themselves asked to help out the SAS in a raid on a German airfield. In spite of the success which brings about large-scale destruction of German aeroplanes the end of the raid provides a series of unexpected hitches and dangers. Their officer is wounded and the Four are told to try to make their own way back to British lines. Amongst their adventures on the way they manage to persuade an entire Italian garrison to surrender to them by a piece of formidable bluff. In addition they trick Italian headquarters into sending out a doctor to treat their wounded Major. The miraculous survival of all four amidst the mayhem they create has by now become an unsurprising feature of the plot.”
