The Silver Jacket (1953-1955)


New Musical Express

Sparshott series


A monthly Australian boys paper, costing 1 shilling, launched by Arthur Garfain, containing a mixture of fiction, articles, quizzes, etc. Apparently Garfain had originally wanted new stories of Greyfriars, but he had to settle for Carcroft stories as Frank Richards only initially had permission to write new Greyfriars stories for Skiltonís hardback editions .

As a result the Silver Jacket started by reprinting Carcroft stories from Hutchinsonís Pie, and then original stories from Frank Richards. Collecting Books & Magazines has some nice illustrations and memories of the Silver Jacket.

You can read all the Carcroft stories from the Silver Jacket on the Friardale site in the story paper section.
