Main cast:- Sergeant Matt Braddock; Sergeant George Bourne.
Time period:- The Second World War.
One of the greatest World War Two British comics characters was Sergeant Matt Braddock, the scourge of all spit and polish officers and tin-pot non-commissioned officers, (NCOís). Braddock was a no nonsense character who hated authority figures who were more interested in ensuring that the war was run according to the rule book as opposed to fighting the war. Even though he fell foul of many senior officers, he was usually saved from being court-martialled by very senior officers who like Braddock didnít care how the war was fought, as long as it was fought. (Braddock was court-martialled in almost every series). Sergeant George Bourne was his navigator and friend in many adventures.
The Braddock stories had originally appeared as text stories in the Rover and Wizard text comic.For a synopsis of each Braddock story that appears in the Victor please refer to the Victor Index via the button below and search for Braddock#.
