The Adventurous Four Again


This somewhat belated sequel was first serialised in Sunny Stories  between February 8th 1946 and January 24th 1947. The action purports to take place in the Easter holidays of the year following The Adventurous Four,  which would make the time of the adventure 1942, but much of what is described in this story is plainly more appropriate to the time it was actually written.

Tom and the twins arrive back at their holiday cottage from school and are greeted by their mother with one of Enid's sizeable teas, which does not reflect the rationing that still would be going on in 1942. And the main plot of the story involves gun running, something less likely to occur during wartime, when the movement of munitions would be strictly supervised and the members of the gang operating the smuggling subject to call up in time of war.
