The Jungle Patrol is a paramilitary law enforcement organisation, formed by the 6th Phantom in 1664.


According to the Newspaper strip

The formation took part after the Phantom had defeated the pirate leader Redbeard and his three lieutenants, Big Bart, Salla, and Crusher in their pirate city, Sanloi. After his victory, the Phantom became the leader of all pirates of Sanloi (the position previously held by Redbeard). His first orders were that Redbeard should pick out 100 loyal men, to help imprison the other pirates. The plan succeeded, and the reformed pirates became the foundation force for the Jungle Patrol. The Founding of the Jungle Patrol

The Phantom was always the leader of the patrol, though from the beginning he was known to the patrolmen, which he is not now. The patrol has been led by The Unknown Commander for the last 150 years. The Return of Gooroo's Mob

No women were admitted until Hawa Aguda and Kay Molloy. The Patrolwomen

According to Team Fantomen

For some time during the 18th century, the second in command did not have the rank of colonel, but that of Captain. It is unknown when this started and when it ended but the patrol was led by a colonel in 1717 The Avenger from the Sea and by a captain in 1770 Dangerous Inheritance, then there was a colonel again some time during the 13th Phantom's era (1793-1811) The Ghost Pirates. In 1735, the 9th Phantom tells a captain that if he (the Phantom) dies tonight, the captain will take over The Treasure of the Barracuda. It is not entirely clear if the captain is to take over the command of the entire patrol or just the force that they have, but the entire command is implied.

The 14th Phantom was murdered by the Singh Pirate Chandra Sykharn that infiltrated the Patrol. That made the 15th Phantom realize how vulnerable the patrol was when it was known that the Phantom was the commander. Therefore, the Phantom has since then been the unknown commander of the Patrol, rarely seen by the patrolmen. The Unknown Commander Part 1 Part 2

The motto of the patrol is "We stand against evil" (sometimes "We serve against evil"), rendered in latin as "Stamus Contra Malum" or more frequently as "Stamus Contra Malo" (which is gramatically incorrect).

The first female recruit was Diana Palmer-Walker, who was accepted despite Colonel Worubu's reluctance. Diana in the Jungle Patrol. Following Mary Jason's success as a recruit, the commander ordered Colonel Worubu to form an all-female squad of the Jungle Patrol to be stationed in The Misty Mountains. Patrolman Mary

Although Diana Palmer-Walker is a non-commissioned officer of the patrol[1], no women were normally admitted until Hawa Aguda and Kay Molloy. The Patrolwomen (edited Team Fantomen version)

Known Colonels

According to Lee Falk

Lee Falk has only mentioned Colonel Weeks, Colonel Worubu, Colonel Redbeard and Colonel Smythe.

According to Team Fantomen

Since Team Fantomen has focused more on historical stories, the number of historical colonels in Team Fantomen stories is far greater.

Seriewikin.gif This article, in the version of January 7, 2008, includes information from Seriewikin: Djungelpatrullen.


The Jungle Patrol's jurisdiction is the jungle areas of Bangalla and its neighbouring countries. The Patrol is sponsored by the countries in which it operates. The Parol Headquarters are located in Bangalla.

There is conflicting information if the patrol has jurisdiction in Morristown The Devil Camp or not The Last Battle.

The only privates are recruits under training. Every patrolman is a non-commissioned officer and he is his own squad. The Reporter

The current colonel (and thereby deputy head since the Phantom always is the head) is Colonel Worubu, who succeeded Colonel Weeks.
