The tough and resourceful Captain "Space" Kingley was the hero of 3 UK children's SPACE-OPERA annuals of the early 1950s. Beyond his pukka Britishness he displayed few individual characteristics. The sequence(which remains extremely difficult to date precisely; the dates here may not be reliable) comprises The Adventures of Captain "Space" Kingley (coll 1952) with stories by Ray Sonin, The "Space" Kingley Annual (coll 1953)with stories by Ernest A. Player, and "Space" Kingley and the Secret Squadron (coll 1954) with stories by David White. All were heavilyillustrated by R.W. Jobson.
