Plot summary

The story takes place in May, 1782 during the days of the 11th Phantom.

During the American Revolutionary War, the British navy keeps prisoners on board the HMS Jersey. Arune Singh of the Singh Brotherhood is in alliance with the ship's Captain Corcoran, and discovers that one of the prisoners is a Chieftain from Bangalla in posession of a part of the Jade Dragon.

The 11th Phantom enters the ship, disguised as a British soldier. He rescues the imprisoned Bangalla Chieftain along with the rest of the prisoners, who fight the British soldiers for their freedom.

After swimming ashore, the Chieftain dies. He had been sent out by the 10th Phantom to search for pieces of the jade dragon, and when he was imprisoned he swallowed the fragment he found to keep it safe.
