    The Union Jack    (about)
    v1 Comments: The covers of the first 5 issues used an inaccurate picture of the flag, then they fixed it up. The serial “In Times of Peril; A Tale of the Indian Mutiny” is a sequel to the almost identically titled “Times of Peril; A Tale of India” after a 3 month interval. The serial “A Search For the Mountain of Gold” was condensed by the editor, but the full text was allegedly available in book form from Griffith & Farran. “Eton Forty Years Ago” is by “An Old Etonian” and edited by Bernard Heldmann. Illustrator “S. Berkley” (sic) is probably NOT Stanley Berkeley.

    v3 Comments:
    The serial “Victor’s False Friend” was translated by W. H. G. Kingston and Mrs. Kingston.
