Flame in the Desert

Issue Number: 5544

Tin Tessie, the Daimler armoured car commanded by Sergeant Ben Holden, wasn’t much to look at. After months in the North African desert, there were more scratches than paint on the car. And the dents would make a sergeant major weep.But every one of those dents told the story of skirmishes with the enemy —all dangerous, some spine–chilling. And the biggest dent of all was a reminder of a certain very strange mission.
