The Captain [1934]

Total Issues: 4?

Lofts gives issue 3 as a combined issue for July/Aug; if this was repeated for Sep/Oct, the total run would be 4 issues only. "In May-1934 a monthly paper was issued, price 6d and contained stories, articles on sport, rowing, etc., similar to the other Captain. It was of a larger size and authors included Francis Marlowe and Major Frederick Douglas. No more issues appeared after the holiday issue dated July/August, so it apparently was a failure." (W.O.G. Lofts)
