Trooper Useless. Trooper Useless was created by L. Patrick Greene (Tabu Dick, Dynamite Drury, Sergeant Lancey, The Major, Commissioner Sykes) and appeared in thirty stories which were collected in Trooper Useless (1936) and Not So Useless (1938).

Trooper Useless is an Africa Hand and is a fictionalized version of Greene himself during his younger years in Africa. Trooper Useless serves in the Kenya Police and then in the British South Africa Police in Rhodesia, killing wild animals, fighting unruly natives, catching or killing criminal whites, and enforcing the peace in other ways.
