10 Nov 79
Judge Dredd Megazine 332
Savage is due to be executed, unless someone saves him.
FIRSTS & LASTS
Last appearance of the DUKW.
He has been beaten. Savage is doused with water to bring him around. He is bound to a chair and sat in his DUKW while it is filled with concrete. The Greater London Legion plan to watch him drown. He is saved by the arrival of Squire Archer and his hill farmers.
He and his hill farmers arrive to save Savage.
Seven. Five rebels are executed by firing squad. Two members of the Legion are shot dead by hill farmers.
Everything Savage says is dreadful.
A dying rebel screams "Aieeeee!" during his execution, while member of the Legion only manages a "Aiee!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
Skin contact with wet concrete causes skin chemical burns. Savage and his saviours are unaffected. Also, why would they waste the DUKW like that? It's the most useful thing in London.

This is ridiculous. Savage is saved in the nick of time by someone that had a convenient change of heart between panels and the only non-animal Savage saw as his life flashed before his eyes. No mention of Bamber either.
