Sailor Sally – She’s all at Sea [1973]

Plot

In World War II Sally Dixon joins the Royal Navy as a Wren. The trouble is, she’s a jinx and things just seem to go wrong around her. Fortunately nothing goes wrong when Sally hauls a mine out to sea for a destroyer to deal with – except that she gets stuck on board the destroyer as they are on urgent business and don’t have time to put her ashore. Will the destroyer find Sally the Jinx even more destructive than Hitler’s war machine?

  1. ‘Sailor Sally – She’s All At Sea!’ runs in DEBBIE 11 (April 28 1973) – 25 (August 4 1973). No episode in issue 18 (June 16 1973), although there is a statement in that issue at the top of page 17 [the pages are not actually numbered], which says “Sailor Sally” will be back Next Week”

  2. A bit more information for you, Lorraine, which I posted earlier on ComicsUK. I have decided not to post again on this site or on that one until I have finished writing BUNTY AND HER SISTERS, which I am more or less ready to start. It will probably take me about six months, after which the plan at the moment is to write a companion work ADVENTURE AND HIS BROTHERS. I will be looking in regularly but the truth of the matter though is that I am very tired, and where my creative work is concerned, I really do need to slow down. Obviously I love all the story papers for girls and for boys, and I get a lot of pleasure reading and rereading them, but I need to impose limits on what I do. I moved down here to Cornwall from Maghull on Merseyside in order to be nearer to my younger son, Russell, his wife, Rachel, and their children, Lois and Alex, who live roughly two minutes away from me by car. Over several days now though I have been remembering how my very good friend, Dave Hardwick, died some years ago in Lincoln. He was 80, but so busy you would not believe. He was building a boat, he was an official guide both to Lincoln, and Lincoln Cathedral, and he was even a scout troop leader still. Quite frequently when we were out somewhere or other he would be greeted by adults saying “Hello, Skip.” Even as far away as Newark and Gainsborough!!! The fact that Dave is in my mind so often these days just has to be a warning to me. I am now going to pop up to Russ and Rach’s, not just for a coffee break, but to fulfil a promise I made to Russ on Friday when we were having a couple of beers in the Copperhouse, which was that I am going to give Lois and Alex £5 per week pocket money, the only proviso being that they put £1 of the £5 aside in a tin to be saved. They are lovely children but they don’t appear to have any idea of the ‘saving for a rainy day’ concept. They will have shortly. It goes without saying, by the way, that if you need any information, you only have to ask, but please use the Private Messaging facility. My best to you, your partner and little Ruby.
