I've been asked on Twitter whether I can help to identify the following story: "help what was the name of a strip set in sinister holiday camp training enemy agents appeared in either Jinty or Sally". It's not Jinty, so if the original questioner is right, it is presumably in Sally?

Might be The Camp on Candy Island from Tammy. It's the only IPC serial I know that uses a holiday camp setting for a sinister purpose. But we still have to check Sally to rule her in or out.

Thanks. I'll pass on that suggestion now in any case, maybe the asker will recognize the name and save further checks in Sally.

The asker on Twitter thinks it is your suggested title, Tammyfan. Thanks for such a quick answer!

Glad to be of service. Candy Island appeared 28/10/72-19/5/1973. It was written by Gerry Finley-Day and drawn by Douglas Perry.

Here is the instalment of The Camp On Candy Island from 17 March 1973. It's the only one I've got.
