Legion Pulp: Khyada

This month’s pulp story is from the 1st of February 1932 issue of Adventure.  This was written by Geroges Surdez and is another example of his very well developed characters–in this case the Alsatian Legion Sergeant Michel Stoeckel.   Sergeant Stoeckel has a knack for befriending and training animals as unit mascots.  Mostly dogs, but also a jackal and a boar that almost cost him his stripes, and in this story a stork, a bird that commands a special reverence not only for him but for his Berber captors.

Note:  Not my scan–so thank you goes to “sas” for a beautiful job on this magazine.
