Sniper’s Island

Issue Number: 5735

Throughout the South Sea Islands he was known as ‘Big Alec’. Six feet three inches of bronzed, husky, Australian beach-comber, gold prospector and hunter.

Big Alec roamed the islands in a tattered shirt, slacks and an old bush hat, his only companion his big game rifle, with its deadly telescopic sight.

Then came the Japanese, island-hopping their way to Australia, mowing down everything in their way — until they reached Big Alec’s island.

There they stopped dead — very dead — for Big Alec never missed…
