This is Lieutenant Bertie Brassbuckle of the first battalion of luft rangers of the world luft patrol. Lt Bertie was built to help with piloting the new luft patrol air ships of the day. Normally they would help out flying the ship during the night while the crew would sleep. During the day Lt Bertie would make sure that the maintenance of the air ship was carried out. On one morning the captain asked Lt Barite if he had had a gas leak in the night on the bridge. But Lt Bertie replied that it wasnt him and he thought it might have been the second in command.
