Bartholomew Wolfe Bandy (July 14, 1893 - unknown) is a fictional character created by Donald Jack. Every book in the Bandy Papers series contained the word 'me' in the title.

Bandy became famous as a World War I air ace in the Royal Flying Corps. He was born in Beamington, Ontario, where he lived until volunteering for the infantry in 1916. After spending some time in the trenches, he decided that the infantry was not entirely suited to him, and so he transferred into the Flying Corps, where he stayed on and off for the rest of the war, until being sent to Russia to fight Bolsheviks. After the war, and his imprisonment in Russia, Bandy had short but illustrious careers in silent films, rum-running, and politics. When several of these became too dangerous, Bandy returned to Europe via Iceland in an attempt to restore his fortunes through the marketing of The Gander, an amphibious aircraft of his own design. His plans, however, came to naught when he lost the Gander during the rescue of a downed aviator in the English Channel. He was forced to seek employment as a lowly hospital porter until being sought out by the rescued aviator, who turned out to be the son of an Indian Maharajah. Offered employment in the Maharajah's air force, Bandy continued his long tradition of upsetting the powers that be by accepting this controversial appointment. Later, in World War II, Bandy again fought against Germany, and became re-acquainted with a son from an earlier, failed, marriage. In the final volume of the series, Bandy faces Germany's top fighter pilot in combat before returning to the Soviet Union for the Yalta conference at the end of the war, where he has to cope with Stalin's paranoia and secret police.
