The Duck. The Duck was created by Captain Frank Shaw (Nikolai Ignatiev, Launcester, League of the Watching Eye, Master Diver, Phyllis Teacher) and appeared in the story serial “The Peril of the Motherland” (Chums, Apr. 22-Sept. 6, 1908).

The Duck is a technologically-advanced craft that is as agile and fast underwater as it is flying. This is a good thing, as those dastardly Tsarist Russians have advanced aircraft of their own, and use them to shell England’s major cities and then invade England. An epic struggle ensues, with British courage staving off Russian barbarism until The Duck is in position to destroy the Russian air and sea fleets and help defeat the Russian invasion forces.
