Battleship Boys. The Boys were created by Frank Gee Patchin (Automobile Girls, Ted Jones, Pony Rider Boys) and appeared in the eight-volume “Battleship Boys” series, beginning with The Battleship Boys at Sea (1910) and ending with Battleship Boys on Sky Patrol (1918).

The Battleship Boys are Dan Davis and Sam Hickey, who join the U.S. Navy as young boys and work their way up the chain of command while fighting the enemies of America, whether in the seas around Europe, "upholding the American flag in a Honduras Revolution," in the China during the siege of Kam Shan Mission, in the Adriatic against U-boats, or fighting against German pilots from Navy planes.
