Devildog Squadron No.1 The Crimson Fog

By Donald E. Keyhoe

“TheMeet “Cyclone Bill” Garrity. Square of jaw and stern of eye, he was the big, hard-boiled C.O. of the 28th Pursuit—a squadron of 27 of the maddest Marines on the Western Front: there was Hick Jones, the tall, lanky Texan who was second in command; Larry Brent, the youthful leader of B Flight; and Lucky Lane and his three lunatics—the solemn-looking Mack Tuttle, Benny Sparks, and the big Irish lug, Pug Flanagan—to name just a few. They may have been hard drinkers with no concept of regulations, but they were all two-fisted fighters in the air, able to out-maneuver, out-fly, and out-scrap any bizarre menace that came their way. They were, as the enraged Boche had labeled them, der Teufelhund Jagdstaffel—the Devildog Squadron!

Donald E. Keyhoe had three series running in three different agains starting in August 1931. There was Captain Philip Strange in Flying Aces; The Jailbird Flight in Battle Aces; and those mad Marines, the Devildog Squadron in the pages of Sky Birds!
