Further Information
Eric Wood had two main series characters, Arnold Keene and Bernard Young

We are Greatly indebted to Alison Campling for the following
"I’m his great niece and can tell you that although he used the pen-name Eric wood, his real name was Frank Knowles Campling (1885-1940). He wrote many books, mainly published by Cassell and co during the 20s and 30s, generally heroic stories, war time adventures etc. (if you google his name you will come up with lists of articles and stories of his). Ironically, his only son, Eric Frank Knowles Campling, was killed during WW2- he was a Lancaster pilot who was awarded both the DSO and DFC for his heroism. As well as being published in book-form, he also wrote many articles for The Strand and Toby magazine and was also editor of Toby magazine."

Bulcraig wanted assistance to unravel the Mancing mystery— the treasurer of the local Oddfellows' Lodge had disappeared with five hundred pounds belonging to the Lodge..
