Notes

"Commencing this Issue" Thrilling new 4 page feature presented by Ovaltine. Based on a segment from "The Ovaltine Show every Sunday around tea-time" on radio stations across Australia. Each week the previous episode was presented as a cartoon strip in the Saturday edition of some newspapers. This is probably a reprint of those serials and appears to be composed of four separate episodes.
