|'Dirtier By the Dozen'
by Brain Clemens
Steed, Gambit and Purdey are assigned the task of locating General Stevens, who mysteriously vanished after performing a spot-check on ‘Mad Jack’ Miller's 19th Commando unit. Recovering some film from a dead agent, Gambit discovers that the footage is of a British Army regiment fighting all over the world. Meanwhile, Purdey visits a pub near the base, and is promptly arrested. Steed, Gambit and Purdey discover that ‘Mad Jack’ is preparing to raid the Middle East using his regiment as a secret gang of mercenaries; he plans to start World War III by leaving Stevens' body behind to implicate the British Army. Steed, Purdey and one-man-army Gambit take on the soldiers, and save the day.
