High Risk Rescue

Issue Number: 5142

Serving on Coastal Motor Boats during the First World War was no joke. 55 feet long, with a top speed of 40 knots, they were uncomfortable and noisy. Their torpedo-launching system was almost as dangerous for their crews as it was for their targets!

But now, CMB skipper, Lieutenant Frank Judge had an even more dangerous task. Sent ashore behind enemy lines, he had to rescue, at all costs, a missing naval officer — a man who knew too much!
