The Castaway Class


During the Second World War, after the ship in which they were on while escaping from Singapore was sunk by Japanese bombers, eight survivors reached a desert island. These were Miss Radcliffe, the head-mistress of a posh boarding school, six of her pupils, and a stowaway called Betty Smith. Betty was the only one of them with any idea how to survive away from civilisation. Miss Radcliffe—a stubborn, snobbish woman-took advantage of Betty and treated her as a servant. Several times Betty had the feeling that they were not the only ones on the island, and that they were being watched.

  1. You’re welcome. Glad you have recovered from Covid. My wife and I have escaped it so far. I think “The Castaway Class” ends in #294 (September 2, 1972). It does not end in #293 and does not appear #295 or 296. I think “Slave Girls” replaced it.

    1. Thanks, we escaped covid for long time too, hope you continue to be in good health! Thanks also for the updates.
