R.C.M.P.

 

R.C.M.P.

A series of Royal Canadian Mounted Police cases mostly adapted and illustrated by George M. Rae for Canadian Heroes. Was this feature inspired by journalist Ted McCall’s cartoon strip “Men of the Mounted” illustrated by Harry Hall? That strip which appeared in the Toronto Telegram in the mid 1930’s was also based on actual R.C.M.P. cases.
