Chums: Chums Special Adventure Number.

Chums - Chums Special Adventure Number. Amalgamated Press, November; does not give year anywhere but as all the Annuals advertised on the back cover have 1931 on them I'd make a fair guess that it's 1930 (but stand to be corrected).

Blanc and A Pirate of the Deep); colour frontispiece (previous item on verso) 'The Bowmen of Agincourt' by Val Reading; Brent of Gatehouse: A Splendid New School Seriel by Gunby Hadath (despite the 'New' it has a 'First Chapters' box which I take to be a synopsis of previous chapters and it appears to continue beyond this issue); The Training of an Air Cadet (short); SOS: The Gourmand: A Great Humorous Series by Reginald Crunden, illus.
