This is very odd. My copy (9th impression May 1942) has the picture the right way up, i.e. Dick's legs pointing up, and the mast below the sledge. With all the difficulties of printing during the war, I would have thought they just kept all the type locked up ready for the next reprint.
Perhaps some officious person had the block reversed after my reprint, and was duly reprimanded after JG's 1943 one had attracted comment.
BTW, the letter quoted by Magnus is also reprinted in Roger Wardale's AR: Master Storyteller (p.80) which is available to the general public.
