Roy Bullen

Roy Bullen was a (perhaps irregular) contributor to various D. C. Thomson papers whose writing career seems to stretch to quite a few decades. I believe Roy Bullen lived in Guildford for many years, contributing to Battle Picture Library and Commando in the late 1960s and early 1970s as well as penning a strip for Buddy in the early 1980s. He seems to have later moved to the Sheffield area and published a number of books on military history.
