Comments: Thanks to Dansen T.Stahl who provided the following information, gleaned from an old fan magazine "Rocket Blast Comi-Collector".

"Costume: Jodhapur pants. Tall leather boots with spurs. Blouse. Ankle-length cape with hood banded in Bedouin-style. Wide belt holding a pistol holter and a long, curved dagger (hanging almost directly under his belt buckle. Party mask(?) (slightly larger than domino mask). Prince Ahmoud was a back-up feature in Robin Hood Comic #1. A perfect example of early John Dixon art. In this story, he used an armored car in preference to the legendary Arabian stallion, and makes use of a submachine gun instead of the scimitar. No doubt a takeoff of Lawrence of Arabia in a WWII setting. Dixon went on to fame as the creator of the Aussie version of Catman and other super heroes." Dansen also contributed the history above.
