Out of the tragedy of Dunkirk came the Commando. O UT of the tngedy of Dunkirk \\here the British, hopelessly outininibcicd, fought off the N"i/is irul rescued tlie remnants of nn army, was hog' the most romantic fighting man of World War U-the Commando. On the records of the War Office his service is named, prosaically, the Combined Operations Comnund, which means very little. But his duties are precise and definite. He nray be an infantryman, a marine, a sailor or nn airman-British, American, Czech, Pole, Norwegian, Dutch, Belgian or Fighting French, but whatever his service or •nationality he*can*slic a throat, drive any kind of a car, Drawings copyright, 1943, by King Fcaturi boat, locomotive or tank, destroy a power plant or a factory with a minimum of effort and time, blow up a bridge, operate a siege gun, sink a ship or forage fur his own dinner. .His chief is Lord Louis Mountbatten, cousin t< the King of England and one of the great figures of this war, and his motto is "United We Conquer." The name Commando comes from the Boer War. After the victories of Roberts and Kitchener, haiulfuls of rhc scattered Boer army formed guerilla groups and so called themselves.

The scheme was worked out hy Lieut. Col. D. W. Clarke, Royal Artillery, who luul fought Aral) guerillas in Palestine and had seen them do what the liocrs had done in Africa. In June, 19-10, Clarke pave the Commandos their name, and the organization was launched. The Commandos were formed.for two reasons. First, They learned Arab guerilla tactics , . . there \v is no existing unit of the Binisli nniv \\hich could be mule ivtihbk !<>i riidin^ opu itions So xenons tt is this shortage that not one battalion, for many months after June, 19-10, could be spared from the paramount task of^ organizing the defense of the British Isles against invasion. Second, the most stringent economy in weapons had to be exercised. All factories were producing weapons for the main army. The weapon scarcity was so acute that the Commaiuiris had to borrow trims from the nrmv stores and return them when thcv came back from '•'ids. (Continued tomorrow) Syndicate, Inc.
