Gritty action is undoubtedly what Commando does best. However, over the decades there have also been comedies, capers, historical epics, science-fiction and... ghost stories. "Battle Flag" is a good example of the latter.

After a detailed framing sequence, veteran writer Cyril Walker cleverly weaves a tale with an eerie thread that runs throughout but does not overwhelm the action and adventure. Interestingly, the working title for this story was "The Flintshire Phantom". That's a good one and, had it been pitched today, I'm sure that it would have been used! Enjoy.
