Another adventure of Samuel Poppleton by Margaret Potter
Produced by Trevor Hill
Old Mr. Poppleton has a shop full of antiques and bric-a-brac, and those of you who follow his adventures will already know that behind many of the articles is a story-a story that concerns the time when he served as a young lad aboard the Saucy Jane.
Today's adventure takes place just before the outbreak of war in 1914.
