Another appeal for help in finding a serial

On Girls' Comics of Yesterday we have had another appeal for help in finding a serial. Details are as follows:

"The story that still sticks with me was about a girl who got kidnapped and forced into military training. They shaved her head and put her in uniform, and she had to do assault courses and combat training. Nobody would explain what was going on. I think she was a bit of a spoilt girl from a boarding school so all this upset her terribly, but then she decided to knuckle down and learn all the military stuff. Eventually she was able to use what she was being taught to her own advantage. Can’t remember how it all ended though! But I did admire her for turning the tables on her kidnappers. I think it was in Bunty, but could have been June and Schoolfriend as these were the two I read every week. Late 60s to early 70s. Any details much appreciated to put me out of my misery!"

Absolute zilch on leads so far. Can anyone help?

It does sound very distinctive, I would think I'd remember if I read it but nothing is springing to mind, hopefully someone will be able to help.

Doesn't sound like it's ringing bells with Phoenix so far either, which could suggest it might be from June and School Friend rather than Bunty.

The premise does remind me of "The Nightmare" from Battle, where Ian Wilson is kidnapped, taken to Nazi Germany, and imprisoned in a Hitler Youth camp for forced military training, Nazi style. He uses what he has learned to escape. He and his fellow escapees even bind and gag Hitler in the process!

I remember this story, I don't recall the the title but it was definitely in Bunty in the mid 1960s. Hope this helps.

Could it have been the Legion of Super Slaves from Sally? I think it's from the right period.

"Dara into Danger" from Tammy was another story about girls being kidnapped for a private army, this time in the Arctic. June had "Annie's Army", but that was a lightweight Dad's Army sort of thing, with no kidnapping involved. I don't think either one is the story in question.

I've made the suggestion of Legion of Super Slaves, so have to wait and see if that is right.In the meantime as the other title Cassie remembers reading was June and Schoolfriend I've had a look through the ones I own from late 60s but I only have a couple and doesn't appear in those issues (11 Dec 1965, 10 Feb 1968, 24 Feb 1968, 8 Feb 1960, 25 Oct 1969)
