As World War One had just ended, the Star Weekly would ask returning soldiers to write in with stories from the war. There would be cash prizes each week ($10 for first prize, $5 for second, and $1 for up to five other stories). ($1 in 1919 would be about $14 in 2021). The first and second prize stories this week also had an illustration by Jim. The first was about a sentry that was scared of a “ghost”, and second was about an atheist who successfully rescued a wounded man in no-man’s land where 3 others had failed, but ended up being the only one killed of the 4 moments later by a falling shell.
