  1. What was the name of a Tenko-themed story with a Japanese prison camp in Suzy, please? Also, how did it end and does anyone have the start and end dates please? I remember the penultimate episode had a mass breakout after the prisoners realised the commandant was having them dig the pit that was to be their mass grave, and they set the camp on fire. But I did not catch the final episode (rats).

    Thanks for any help.

    1. Was it Kids of Camp Courage? (Had the same artist as When Vera Vanished). I looked at in the library, but don’t remember how it ended.

  2. ‘The Kids Of Camp Courage’ ran in SUZY 134 (Mar. 30 1985) – 145 (Jun. 15 1985). In the final instalment Jenny Thomas realises that arrangements are being made by their Japanese prison guards to kill all the children they had captured. By the middle of 1945 conditions in the prison camp are dreadful, and the boys and girls are near starvation. The girls start a fire, which the wind is blowing towards the camp, so taking advantage of the resulting commotion, the older children carry the younger ones and make their escape, and are sensible enough to leave a false trail for the Japanese to follow. After crossing a rope bridge they then loosen the posts at one side, just enough to persuade the chasing soldiers that they were getting away so quickly that they wouldn’t have had time to sabotage the bridge. When the Japanese get there, that is exactly what they assume. However, due to the combined weight of the soldiers, the bridge gives way, but Captain Sakko and five others manage to cross before the bridge collapses. The deus ex machina is led by Major Harris of the Royal Marines, who informs Sakko as he arrests him that the war is already over, and the Japanese High Command has already surrendered to the Allies.
