An illustration from Book ‘D' of Boys' Adventure Stories, depicting a German U boat floating unawares in the jungle as a lone British soldier (with enormous lungs) looks to attach an explosive device to the hull. This was a front cover image for the Arabic version of the book, hence the Arabic text.
